The outcome is both startling and impressive. It is an expression of contemporary female identity--self-aware, distinctive and thoroughly positive, in a series of nude photograhs that inexorably capture and hold our attention, revealing at the same time the artist's highly creative approach to the medium of photography and to the individual selves of the women portrayed" (front flap). A very nice copy of this collection of photographs taken by diverse women under the same conditions: the same lighting, white background, and unchanged camera position, some sexy, some tender, fierce, revealing, shy, and more, with texts by Klaus Honnef, thea Herold, Georges Mara D'Ejove, and Kristin Sauer. Very good + / very good +. Item #4211
