'Emma Wilson has made an incisive contribution in the fast-growing field of studies of the image and mortality. Sensitive, thoughtful and finely written, this is a compelling and moving account of our relationship to death through photography and film.'

"This physically lovely book, packed with details, quotes and new concepts, contains an impressive reference list, a full index, informative endnotes and a comprehensive list of moving image artworks, all demonstrating the extensive research accomplished by Wilson. ... Through her detailed, gentle and loving linguistic handling of the work of respected filmmakers and artists ... Wilson has provided us with a book overflowing with new concepts on how to consider death, dying and the dead body - with love."
