The Mobius archives, including his photographs, are now housed at the Tufts University Digital Collections and Archives.This 10″x10″ book not only contains 70 colour photographs of performances, but also includes essays about the history of Mobius in Boston, and about the challenges of documenting ephemeral art. Additionally, the artists pictured in the images have written about their art work, and about Bob Raymond’s work as documentarian and artist.
