This once-lost trove of photographs date from 1972,
a pivotal year for Sun Ra.
Half of the photos in this book are of interior murals
made by Ra-colleague and musician Ayé Aton
— spectacularly beautiful in their 1970s supersaturated color.
From the same period, a cache of never-published photographs
taken on location in Oakland for the film Space is the Place,
features Ra in full regalia, wearing beautiful Egyptian costumes.
