Damien Echols, Life After Death

Victim of a miscarriage of justice in the West Memphis Three case, Damien Echols barely escaped from death penalty. He spent 18 years on death row for a triple manslaughter he didn’t commit. The book cover of La vie après la mort — french version of Life after death — reminds the crossed dark years of the author and finaly, his return to life. Supported by a large community, Damien Echols, real icone, is here represented in contasted shades of grey refering to the codes of Pop iconography. The metallized copper ink brings back to a concrete and material aspect of this unusual story. ring.fr © Ring éditions / David Serra — © Jany Bassey
