In pictorial DJ with gilt titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Fahey/Klein Gallery Los Angeles from April 11 through May 18, 2002. The show travelled on to New York City. Presents Greg Gorman's "Just Between Us". Page after page of black-and-white, full-page, "bleed" as well as cropped nude photographs featuring just one model, Greg Knudson. Those who will immediately think this is a "remake" of Bruce Weber's "Chop Suey Club" need to know right away that the similarity ends there. This is photography that tests and challenges the fine line between erotic art photography and pornography. The point is Greg Gorman does not need to prove how well he can photograph a male nude, as evidenced by his previous collections, notably "Greg Gorman" Volumes One and Two and "As I See It". This collection posits the subversive notion that this man's sole reason for being is sex: Having the physical beauty and natural endowment for it, experiencing it guiltlessly, showing it off uninhibitedly, and sharing it openly with his voyeur/viewers. His most sexually explicit collection. An absolute "must-have" title for Greg Gorman collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the half-title page by Greg Gorman. It is signed directly on the page itslef, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in are all of the Launch Reception Materials: Formal Invitation, Press Release, Advertisement of the book in The New Yorker Magazine, and a copy of a Print Advertisement that utilizes Greg Knudson as the model (taken by Greg Gorman). This title is an erotic photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy with set of materials of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. Please note: One of the very last titles published by the now-defunct Arena Editions, the title's availability has been very unpredictable, thereby making copies increase in value dramatically. A rare signed copy thus. 250 duotone plates. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine collectible set. (SEE ALSO OTHER GREG GORMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1892041561.

Synopsis: Over the last two decades, photographer Greg Gorman has carved out a classically refined style that is uniquely his own. In his portraits of Streisand, DiCaprio, De Niro, and Travolta, his fine art work, and his major ad campaigns, Gorman?s images suggest a mastery of the medium that few have rivaled. Continuing his exploration of the male nude, Just Between Us is a highly charged work focused exclusively on one model. During a year of shooting, an unusually collaborative relationship evolved between artist and subject. What unfolds is a photographic narrative unfettered by convention ? a bold compilation of images unmatched for its candor and sexuality. 250 photographs are featured.
