Description:

1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 1994. The photographer's breakthrough debut collection. Now considered a contemporary erotic photography classic. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the pocket-sized edition, which was brought out in 2002 by the publisher. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no Hardcover Edition. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Bruno Gmunder Verlag: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with large flaps, as issued. Photographs by Benno Thoma. There is no text. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is sublime: The images are in dark, rich, and warm tones. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Benno Thoma's "Young Companions". The photographer's male nudes, mostly in black-and-white. Benno Thoma achieved international status with this collection, which is a tasteful yet highly sensual celebration of the beauty of the male face and body. Each model is on the brink of manhood and exuding a singular mix of shy self-consciousness and bold self-confidence that for Benno Thoma, is the essence of their erotic appeal (all of the models in Benno Thoma's book are eighteen and older). Most of the models are photographed full-frontal; some, semi-erect, and two, with full erections. This would all be vulgar in lesser hands, as it were, but Benno Thoma succeeds in making the images seem the most natural thing a man could have or show or be. An absolute "must-have" title for Benno Thoma collectors. This title is a contemporary erotic art photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: There is no Hardcover Edition, but there is a pocket-sized edition that should not be confused with this First Edition. A rare copy thus. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BENNO THOMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3861870053. Bookseller Inventory # 15657
