About this Item

"First Edition" stated. Greenfield-Sanders' photographs have appeared in Vanity Fair. Here, he offers pairs of professional color studio photos of 30 stars of "adult" films in quarto ("coffee-table") format, posed first clothed and then naked. "Full frontal nudity," and all that. At rear, each subject is afforded a page for an autobiographical essay. Perhaps predictably, not all the subjects are surpassingly beautiful, though most are fit and a certain boldness does prevail. The brief, invited "celebrity essays" on the topic of porn from the likes of Lou Reed are unimportant if at least not overly serious, with the exception of the four-page interview of porn director Chi Chi LaRue by John Waters, which is wonderfully odd. "You know, I had this editor editing movies for me once who hated assholes. Editing gay movies? I'm like 'Wrong profession, dear.' He would show the ass-eating for like three seconds. . . ."

About this title

Synopsis:

XXX by renowned photographer Timothy Greenfield- Sanders, features cleverly paired portraits (one clothed and one nude) of the top stars in pornographic film. A cross-section of straight and gay men and women is represented, from porn legends to rising stars. Performers in the book include celebrities like Jenna Jameson (the leading porn star of our time), Ron Jeremy, and Nina Hartley, as well as fast-rising names like Sunrise Adams, Bella Donna and Chad Hunt. The book will also feature short essays on the intersection of pornography and culture by a wide range of distinguished writers, including Salman Rushdie, Francine du Plessix Gray, John Malkovich, Nancy Friday, and John Waters. XXX is a landmark artistic work that will contribute to the ongoing debate about the 'pornification' of the culture at large.
