    "Talent worthy of your attention" I must start this review off with a full confession: I feel self publishing sites are responsible for a large number of no talent ass clowns with nothing of real relevance or importance to say having, not only the ability to get their work “published,” but also for making these folks feel like “real” authors. Although I have not taken much time to do so, I am sure examples of this abound on LuLu.com. After all: there’s a reason you couldn’t get anybody to publish your sci-fi romance novel about transgender paraplegics who travel the universe as “space pirates” and have speech patterns so developed beyond our puny level of comprehension that they only speak in haiku using words void of the letter “e.” It is (surprise!) because nobody wants to read that. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, there is certainly room for actual product of artistic merit and worth on sites like this. When self-publishing is used for “good” rather than... More > “delusion” the artist and those interested in their work benefit in a synergistic fashion. This book is a perfect example of that synergism. Lori (or if we want to get all “official reviewer up in here” about it, Ms. Glaza) clearly has an eye for the subject matter at hand, and the presentation of said material fits her title perfectly: Silent Cities. There is something tranquil about the grounds of a cemetery – and the photos in this book show the peaceful beauty and pieces of history that stand testament to lives once lived. It is enjoyable on many levels – whether you’re interested in Detroit history, cemetery architecture, or just enjoy beautifully shot photography, this is well worth your time. My only criticism of the book is the lack of notation, leaving the viewer in the dark about critical details that may be of interest. But at the same time, photos like this speak to us all on their own, and words would simply get in the way of the messages conveyed by their beauty. Nicely done. Support Detroit and local artists by buying a copy.< Less
