The most extraordinary visual survey of human passion ever created, "Love and Desire" is the long-awaited sequel to William Ewing's influential and highly successful "The Body"(over 150,000 sold in the U.S. alone). Here, the internationally acclaimed photography curator brings together over 300 color and duotone images that explore human intimacy in all its forms--from the innocent sensuality of a mother and child, to the group adoration of a cultural icon, to the carnal connection between the sexes. These images--both the famous and the obscure from the past 150 years of photography--come together in a thought-provoking exploration of humankind's deepest yearnings. Sliding easily into its translucent slipcase, this beautifully designed book offers an amazing array of compelling images at an irresistible price.
