From Publishers Weekly:

Love and deathEros and Thanatosform the dual theme of Clergue's stirring photographs, alternating between the eroticism of a nude awash in sea spray and the disturbing pattern made by a dead dog's bones sinking into the sand. The French photographer turns life into symbol with his haunting images of nudes, landscapes, animal corpses, faces etched in stone, shadows and shapes. We see matadors proudly taunting death in the guise of a bull; children dressed as harlequins, oddly posed amid the rubble of ruined buildings; gypsies dancing and playing. Dating from the 1950s to the present, these black-and-white photos (approximately 12 in color) are beautifully reproduced, and Fulton's essay and Tournier's introduction provide perceptive analyses of Clergue's work and background.

From Library Journal:

These photographs by Clergue, who also organizes the renowned Recontres Internationales de la Photographie pho to festival, span the last 30 years of his career. Influenced and guided by Picas so and Jean Cocteau, with whom he oc casionally collaborated, his work re flects some of the issues and themes those artists dealt with: death, symbol ism, myth. But Clergue is an original. His photographs are technically superb and visually disquieting. Included here are series of dead and decomposing ani mals, bullfights, tombs, and costumed children looking lost amid crumbling war ruins. Also included are Clergue's well-known nudes and abstract land scapes. Recommended for larger col lections. Frank Schroth, Technology Training Associates , Cambridge, Mass.
