Elizabeth Heyert’s ”The Travelers”

In The Travelers (Scalo, $65), photographer Elizabeth Heyert showcases portraits taken at a Harlem funeral parlor. Shot with the permission of both the families and funeral director, Heyert’s subjects (such as 71-year-old Margaret Alston) are all elaborately dressed and appear to be asleep, producing a mood that’s both creepy and beautiful.
