Exhibition Catalog presented as an Artist Book. One of the photographer's single finest collections.

Text excerpts by S. E. Hinton, Robert Frost, and Muhammad Ali. Printed in gravure on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the very highest standards. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Robert Miller Gallery New York in 2000. Presents and showcases the photographer's well-known and impeccable eye for the male nude as well as his increasingly broader interests as a photographer who has been influenced by such seminal figures as Walker Evans and Robert Frank. There are beautiful and deeply felt portraits of children, animals, landmarks, and landscapes, including a breathtakingly beautiful panoramic shot of the Hudson River. The doublespread male nude portrait, "Ben Ellsworth, Camp Longwood, Spitfire Lake, New York 2000", is one of Bruce Weber's best male nudes ever, reminiscent and worthy of comparison with the classic male nudes in "Bear Pond", his celebration of the unfettered harmony between Man and Nature. A "must-have" title for Bruce Weber collectors. This title is now highly collectible. Only 1000 copies were made available to the public, all of which sold out shortly after publication. This is one of extremely few copies still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. It is the most beautiful copy we have ever found of a beautiful book. A rare copy thus. Bruce Weber's "O Rio de Janeiro", the sexiest photography book ever published, was selected as one of the "Seminal Photography Books of the 20th Century" in the "Book of 101 Books". One of the finest living American photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE WEBER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0970574509. $800.00
