This beautiful volume is an extraordinary visual survey of human passion. This is the long-awaited sequel to Ewing's acclaimed photography collection "The Body." Here, he surveys 150 years of photographic history exploring how the camera has been used to express the elusive ideas, thoughts, & sentiments related to the most turbulent of human emotions. These photos capture the group adulation of a public icon & the showgirl's seduction of her audience, a man proudly posing with his two wives as well as the innocent sensuality of a child clutching his mother's breast. Here are images by the great names in photography, including: Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Nan Goldin, Helmut Newton, Sally Mann, Brassai, & Julia Margaret Cameron. Plastic slipcase.
