About the book

"After Beauty" is a book by an American photographer Maura Sullivan published by 1605 Publishers. Sullivan has graduated from Syracuse University and has attended the International School of Photography. She currently lives in New York. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and is widely exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions across the world. Her first monograph, "Things we Remember" was published in 2021 by Skeleton Key Press.

Being her second monograph "After Beauty" is inspired by a poem of an artist and a poet Walter Fields, which also begins the book. According to Sullivan, it's more than just beauty that makes someone beautiful, it's the person's character and the attitude towards life.

"There is something magical about publishing that somehow makes the work more real. I love the conversations between the images on a printed page and the stories that unfold as you move through a book. I am so thrilled to share the pages of this book with some of Walter Fields' poetry..." - Maura adds.

After Beauty (poem by Walter Field's)

Beauty's counter weight
Dark eyes falling, gesture, hands.
Infinitely joining key & lock & later maybe man.
Newton's only perfect proposition quietly realized.
Simply said: the true & trembling task.
