About this title


From the publisher: "That the camera can give uncanny life to inanimate objects is something recognized and explored by photographers since the invention of the medium more than 150 years ago. Through forty-one photographs of sculpture, The Kiss of Apollo examines aspects of the photographer's enlivening gaze and the ways in which new meaning can be created when one artist observes the work of another."
