Title: CHRISTOPHER ATKINS: THREE PHOTOGRAPHS FROM ...
Publisher: Los Angeles, CA: Various Photographers
Book Condition: As New
Edition: 1st Edition
1st Printing. 3 pages. Published in 2010. Rare Christopher Atkins collectible set. Pristine copies of three 8 X 10 inch contemporary color prints of the Hollywood film actor/sex symbol. Beautifully, seductively, and sexily photographed to publicize three of the actor's major coups: A publicity shot for his breakthrough film, "The Blue Lagoon" (1980, the rare close-up portrait of the handsome actor fully dressed in period costume before he and Brooke Shields are stranded on an island wearing practically nothing for the rest of the film); the sexily homoerotic version of and celebrated homage to Richard Avedon's "Nastassja Kinski And The Serpent", which depicts Atkins as Adam, the one that the Serpent seduces instead of Nastassja/Eve, wrapping itself around the actor and scarily covering his right eye (1981, as photographed by Corbis); and his nude multi-page photospread for Playgirl Magazine (1984, the full-frontal nude shot as photographed by Greg Gorman, which was cropped to hide his genitals in the Magazine Issue itself; he still has his blue shorts on though, a brilliant Gorman touch to a highly erotic shot). They are printed on thick, glossy archival color paper to the highest standards. The images are bathed in warm tones, and are unusually clear, crisp, and bright. Each is encased in its own protective plastic sheet. The lot shows Christopher Atkins at the peak of his "heartthrob" masculine beauty. "As soon as I get a job where I don't have to wear a loincloth, I will be wearing a Speedo! Will I ever have an acting job where I don't have to be shirtless or nude?" (Christopher Atkins). Nope. This is the genuine article, a "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, set for Christopher Atkins and male erotic art photography collectors. These contemporary color prints are now difficult to find and highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such set available online and has no flaws, pristine beauties. A rare set thus. One of the most handsome and sexiest living film actors. A flawless set.
