The full vision of the families,
By A Customer
This review is from: Jock Sturges (Hardcover)
This is Sturges' greatest work, and not least because it completes the catalogue of his friends and their families. Flawlessly printed from 8X10 contact silver gelatin prints, this shows the other pictures of the subjects we felt like we knew from the previous two books,often running us through 5 or 10 years of a model's life in as many pages. This work is important, because hiding something away empowers it- in a society where nudity between ages 6 and 18 is considered somehow wrong, it is no wonder we have so many perverts. Take away the thrill of the forbidden, and just enjoy the peaceful, respectful portraits in this 200 page retrospective. Their bodies are not the problem- your mind is.
