Alive with the Dead: A Fly on the Wall with a Camera is a photographic memoir by Susana Millman presenting 25 years of her insider-perspective photographic work with the Grateful Dead and their later shape-shifting incarnations. The book offers a visual history of them not only onstage but also offstage, pursuing outside interests and activities, many of which not only did good for the world but also brought together some strange and wonderful combinations of people.
Of course it all starts with the band on stage, forever improvising from their rich oeuvre. The images in the book present a unique and personal retrospective of the great time Susana had shooting the band, sharing her memories with you so that you can cherish them and celebrate your own.
The book provides a visual cross section of life around the Dead in the 'middle age' of the band when they were already rock stars, no longer the communal hippie family of the early days, but with their persona and influence rippling out steadily into the world to become the unique musical and cultural phenomenon they remain today.
