Art in Photographic Form 14 Mar 2005
By Joseph of Terre Haute - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jock Sturges has arguably done more for the art of the modern nude than any other. His controversial use of young girls and women is superceded by his platonic relationships with the girls and their families over many years of taking photographs.

This book highlights the best of the last 25 years. Although I felt the book was somewhat limited in what they determined to be the "best", (and the book somewhat pricey for a soft cover)the photographs are beautifully presented in this book. What's great about the book is the few paragraphs that tell of the intimate nature of each photo. Recommended if a Sturges fan.

A remarkable book 25 Nov 2005
By Dennis Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A remarkable book for several reasons: the selection of images are all strong and the personal commentary by the photographer placed across from each full page reproduction is an insightfull and intimate dimension that distinguishing this publication from Mr. Sturges' other books. Also the reproductions are some of the best I have seen of his work and glow with a warmth and depth. This is a small edition of 3000 copies and I feel the price of $50 reflects the high quality of printing and paper used. A must-have for serious book collectors of photographic nudes and portraiture.

It's expensive but very good, no regrets owning it. 28 Jan 2005
By A. Burchfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As the description says this is a review of 25 years of Jock Sturges work. Anyone who has seen Mr. Sturges photographs or his books will find photos of several of his subjects taken over the years- Fanny, Misty Dawn, Vanessa- they're all here.
Most of the pictures were beautiful although a few did strike me almost as snapshots, even those showed the photographer's skill. I liked the way he told a little something about each one in the accompanying caption. You'll learn something about the subjects in each one that isn't usually found in other Sturges books.
At $50 the price is somewhat expensive but at least you're buying some great photographic art. I wish I'd bought my copy here at Amazon, my source charged me $7.39 for shipping, no cost shipping is available here. Any serious Jock Sturges collector ought to buy this one.
