Sugar and Spice

description

Collection of nude photographs of women by James Baes, Peter Gert, Helmut Newton, Garry Gross, William Jolitz, Stephen Anderson, Ron Mesaros, Dick Zimmerman, Antonin Kratochvil, Christian Vogt, Guido Mangold, Jeanloup Sieff, Keeling/Robert. Each photographer's portfolio prefaced by introductory text. Includes Garry Gross's suggestive photograph of an adolescent Brooke Shields (which Richard Prince later appropriated) and other little girls. "Garry's premise in creating them was simply to demonstrate his feeling that a little girl often projects an identifiable sensuality, into which she grows as she becomes a woman. Obviously, a child's and woman's expressions of that sensuality will differ, but Garry is intrigued by the fact that it so clearly exists in both: inside that little girl there's a sexy woman hiding. -- from the text on the photographer.
