Presents "Jack Webb Suspects His Parents". That they continued having great sex long after he was born, just like these five couples do well into in their respective marriages. "In 1999, photographer Jack Webb began placing ads in British papers and magazines, seeking 'genuine couples' to allow him to photograph them having sex. Of the many who replied, five couples were photographed, most inviting Jack into their homes, and one to a local reservoir on a freezing November day. The results are non-idealized, raw and astonishingly touching at the same time. Beautifully printed in a slim and intimate volume" (Publisher's blurb). "The paradox of these photographs is that they try to document something private, something that is not meant to be seen" (Anouchka Grose). That would surely describe every sex picture while photography itself is inherently voyeuristic. What sets Webb's project apart is that the models are real couples, not models or actors, whose marriages have endured: They could be your parents. An absolute "must-have" title for Jack Webb collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command hundreds of dollars because the book is scarce. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. Finalist of the International Photo Book Prize for "Jack Webb Suspects His Parents" in 2012. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine copy. . ISBN 0984454632. $100.00
