Special Edition - The Death of a Beautiful Subject by Sophy RIckett

Published November 2015
£150 / €210 / $250

In November 2015 GOST Books will publish 'The Death of a Beautiful Subject' by Sophy Rickett. A special boxed collectors edition of 50 copies including a limited edition silver gelatin print is now available for presale.

'The Death of a Beautiful Subject' features an appropriated "accidental archive" of photographs of butterflies made by the artist's father. These photographs are reproduced alongside a narrative text by the artist which moves back and forth in time. This project develops Rickett's interest in the encounters between people and the natural world and is her most autobiographical project to date, exploring themes of dislocation, separation and reconciliation.
