Description:

Collection of 5 of Sherwin Carlquist's photography books of male nudes in natural landscapes: - Man Naturally (1996): [6]pp (Title and Preface), 212pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth, with black lettering on spine and front cover. Following the success of his photographic essay "Natural Man," Sherwin Carlquist has expanded his coverage of the male nude in "Man Naturally." Featuring 212 b/w photographs, this volume explores the interrelationship between the male body and a landscape, integrating these two elements in new and ingenious ways in order to produce compositions of lasting value. Minor shelf wear on dust-jacket. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition. - The Natural Man (1999): 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 210pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth, with white lettering on spine and front cover. Frontispiece. "The Natural Man" extends the efforts of Carlquist's two previous books by introducing compositions in which the landscape dominates as well as those in which a body dominates and adds a few novel compositions: panels of bodies (rather than the entire figure) combined with vignettes of the adjacent landscape. Textures of rock, wood, leaves, clouds, and shadows are introduced throughout the book in ways that are both classical and yet as new as today. This volume is splendidly illustrated with 210 b/w photographic reproductions of nude men. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 647. Dust-jacket slightly sunned and rubbed along edges. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition. - Man/Nature (2002): 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 212pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth, with black lettering on spine and front cover. Frontispiece. In this newest addition to Sherwin Carlquist's series, there is an effort to depict textures and forms with even greater diversity and richness. Landscapes used in these photographs include some of the most striking in southern Utah, in which sandstones and other rocks are intricately sculptured by wind and water. Californian landscapes with equally intense textural features supply the majority of the photographs. Extensive use is made of weathered wood, leaf shadows, and foliage (especially pine needles) as a way of connecting the strength of the male figure to the natural landscape. The models are diverse yet complement the scenery in which they are photographed; 28 models are represented, more than in any of the previous books. Natural light is used, and none of the 212 photographs is altered by computerization. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 564. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition. - Natural Man: The Uniform Edition (2004): 1/1000. Quarto. [4]pp (Title and Preface), 124pp (Plates), [4]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth, with white lettering on spine and front cover. The present book differs from the first edition in shape and size. Publication of this volume brings this book into format conformity with the other titles in the series. Blank pages have been omitted, and the sequence of the photographs has been rearranged, although the photographs are the same ones as in the first edition. Because in the present edition photographs face each other in pairs, an attempt has been made to pair facing photographs so that they are complementary and each pair forms a diptych of sorts. First print limited to 1,000 copies, of which this is No. 22. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition. - Natural Manscapes (2005): 1/1000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 200pp (Plates), [8]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth, with white lettering on spine and front cover. Bookseller Inventory #
