Sinopsis: First edition, first printing. Photographs by Donigan Cumming. Includes passages from Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" as remembered by Albert Ross Smith on May 30, 1988. Unpaginated (256 pp.), with 250 black and white plates finely printed full-bleed on coated paper. 9-1/2 x 6-7/16 inches. From the publisher: "An early work from this acclaimed photographer of the old, ugly, neglected, sick, demented, and drunk. A future classic. Simultaneously criticized as exploitative and celebrated as being genuinely in touch with his subjects, Cumming's often repellant and always engaging photographs bring sordid existences to life. 'All of life is a stage' reverberates through the course of the photographs as they weave a complex path between theatricality and reality."
