Davis, Lynn (Photographer) & Weiermair, Peter (Contributor). LYNN DAVIS: BODYWORK: 1978-1985. Zurich, Switzerland: Editions Stemmle, 1994. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 119 pages. As New/As New.

Collection of the photographer's male and female nude work. The first and only edition. A brilliant production by Lynn Davis and Editions Stemmle: Oversize-volume format. Hard boards with titles on spine, as issued. Photographs by Lynn Davis. Foreword by Peter Weiermair. Chronology of the photographer's life and career appended at the end. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Zurich, Switzerland to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the photographer's collection of nude studies, taken over a period of seven years. Classical, sculptural, and often abstract, in contrast to the grittier, more realistic, and more explicit style of many contemporary photographers, these arresting nudes emphasize the aesthetic and of course, the erotic appeals of the perfect human body. Consistent with her now-considerable body of work, it is not an exaggeration to say that Lynn Davis sees the beauty that our world has to offer (whether in her celebrated landscape and landmark photography or in this collection of nudes) with a sense of awe and majesty. An important work in the photographer's oeuvre, this is a "must-have" title for Lynn Davis collectors. This title has been out-of-print for a long time and is now collectible. Copies in fine condition have become difficult to find. This is one of few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 60 duotone plates. One of the most brilliant living American photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LYNN DAVIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3905514370. $80.00
