Originally published in 1974 by the Jargon Society and long out of print, 'The family album of Lucibelle Crater' is the best known body of Ralph Eugene Meatyard's work. At once comic and tragic, grotesc and beautiful, each image in the series of sixty-four features his wife in a hag's Halloween mask together with a masked friend or relative. An important rediscovery in the history of American photography.
