Familiar Men - A Book of Nudes Laurie Toby Edison

£19.99

Product description

Book is in like new condition. All pages and photographs unmarked and uncreased. Is inscribed on title page at 97 of 100, signed by photographer.

From the publisher: In a wholly original photo study of the wide variety of nude male bodies, photographer Laurie Toby Edison turns her photographic insight on the disturbing conviction of the vast majority of American men: "I did not get to be the man I was supposed to be." This conviction, of course, affects not only men, but the women who care for men and the children who are raised by men. In short, these photographs speak to everyone. As Susan Faludi's best-selling Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man went beyond the conventional social assumptions about men, Edison's nude portraits go beyond the extremely narrow slice of male nudity and semi-nudity available in popular culture. These photographs speak to men's understanding of themselves and each other, as well as social understanding of men in general. These expectations directly affect men's actions and interactions with friends, family, and society.
