At once comic and tragic, grotesque and beautiful, the series of 64 images features his wife, Madelyn, in a hags Halloween mask together in each with a different friend or relative in a transparent mask.

Original copies of this small but seminal work now sell for upwards of $500. Critic and scholar James Rhem has worked closely with the archives in the photographers estate, as well as directly with his surviving family members to reconstruct Meatyards original, and unrealized, intentions for the publication of this project.

As a result, this revised edition features the correct sequencing of images and, most importantly, the missing captions, which, in accordance with Meatyards instructions, are reproduced in his own handwriting as white type knocked out of a black background. In addition, each surviving participant in the Lucybelle Crater project has been interviewed by Rhem, and the book includes a critical essay and extensive background information.

Accompanying the Album are 40 more figurative works establishing a context for it and exploring important themes in Meatyards work. This is an important rediscovery in the history of American photography.
