Pompeii: What Remains 2018

I am most grateful to Amy DeLap, co-owner of Art Space Gallery, Vincennes, Indiana, for her thoughts and words spending many hours writing the in-depth essay which follows. Many thanks to Jackie and Bob in England (pompeiiinpictures.com) for their assistance in identifying many of the sites I photographed without remembering to note exactly where they were. To Dr. Richard De Puma, the F. Wendell Miller Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Classical Art and Archaeology at the School of Art and Art History, University of Iowa for his advice and suggestions. And as always thanks go to my daughter Heidi Alyssa Lowe (also a photographer) for her editorial advice in the selection of photographs for this book and for her wizardly knowledge of Adobe InDesign.
