Fabulous Photos

When: Tue., Oct. 21 2014

Local photographer Barney Taxel has taken photos of Lake View Cemetery for more than two decades. Now he’s compiled the best of those images in the new book, The Lake View Cemetery: Photographs from Cleveland’s Historic Landmark. “Barney’s book is resplendent of the innate natural charm of Lake View Cemetery, showing broad horizons, the undulating terrain, horticulture and nature, monuments, sculptures and architecture, as well as special close-up scenes of even acorns on a gravestone,“ says Lake View’s president and CEO Katharine Goss in a press release. “The book embodies the essence of Lake View.” Published by the University of Akron Press, the 250-page coffee table book will be available at the cemetery’s Mausoleum, which also hosts an exhibit of the photos. That exhibit opens a six-week run today at 5:30 p.m. Taxel and his wife Laura, an acclaimed local author who contributed the book’s text, will be on hand until 7 p.m. The book will be available for purchase.
