Artist Darrel Ellis died at an early age, a casualty of the AIDS epidemic. He left behind a truly unique body of work, implementing experimental approaches to photography and drawing. Visual AIDS, an organizing advocating for a better understanding of artists working under the threat of AIDS, recently published a lovely monograph documenting the incredible work Ellis produced in a short period of time. My full review of the book is available on the Photo Eye blog.
