New from The Photo Review —

a book by the photographer Bill Armstrong entitled Quarantine: Artists and Writers on Isolation with an introduction by the noted critic Lyle Rexer.

With Armstrong’s evocative, transformative images and text by writers and artists from Boccaccio and Camus to Chaucer and Shakespeare, to Frida Kahlo and Virginia Woolf, to Eldridge Cleaver and Nelson Mandela, recounting their thoughts on living under conditions of quarantine and isolation, some during pandemics of the Plague and the Spanish Flu, “Quarantine” is an apt and thought-provoking volume for our time.

The book is available for purchase for $25. Limited edition prints of all of the portraits are also available as 8×10″ prints for $150 and 20×24″ prints for $2,500.
