Retrospective collection of the photographer's nudes. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. 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 pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Zurich, Switzerland to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Lynn Davis' "Bodywork". An important work in the photographer's oeuvre. The photographer's collection of formal human-figure 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 images emphasize the aesthetic appeal 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 with a sense of awe and majesty. An absolute "must-have" title for Lynn Davis collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 60 duotone plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LYNN DAVIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3905514370. $30.00
