Would You Let Your Daughter?
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Fashion photographer Parkinson here presents a merry hodge-podge of camera shots all aimed at women. "Intelligent eroticism," says he. From the pages of Vogue, Town & Country, etc., and the artist's own picture file, this handsome volume of smashing if overblown design and pixy-minded text offers as its climactic bouquet mischievous portraits of the author's personal dream girls (E. Taylor, E. Lauder et al.): 17 in all. En route, there are assorted ballet turns, nude/clad contradictions, closeups, full-length abandon, world-class name models in various states of agitation, and recurring fashion-type poses fixe by the same young model in titillating nudity who seems to be angry about something. A heavy romp and lots of fun for sophisticated, non-feminist devotees of visual explosion in photography. December 232

Book Description Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1985. Oblong 4to. Unpaginated. Color photos, with commentary. Norman Parkinson's career as a photographer spans fifty years. This book is created out of Parkinson's love of, and respect for, women; it is an attempt to re-educate the modern male to look again and re-admire the quality of the female form. A revisitation of the delights of intelligent eroticism, 'Would You Let Your Daughter?' includes 65 lavish photographs of his favorite models and dream girls, illustrating this celebration of womanhood: Elizabeth Taylor, Jerry Hall, Ann Getty, Isabella Rossellini, Barbara Cartland etc. - all facing the loving gaze of his camera lens. They are complemented by the photographer's light hearted views on the art of flirting, sexpertise, eroticism vs. pornography, as well as quotations form Cole Porter, Stendhal, Noel Coward (the inspiration for the title) and Parks himself.
