"In Andreas Bitesnich's photos one finds the lightness of Howard Schatz, the intensity of Mapplethorpe, and the charm of Demarchelier-just the right ingredients for sophisticated nude photography." With this high praise the photographic collection Nudes was awarded the coveted Kodak Photography Book Prize. Out of print for years, Bitesnich's remarkable first book is now available in a slightly smaller format, and its reissue will delight the many fans of this supremely talented artist. At the center of Bitesnich's work are the contours and surfaces of the human body-male and female figures transformed into timeless works of art. Bitesnich's adroit use of light and shadow creates a classic yet playful tension that is complimented by his precision and depth of tone. Erotic and highly charged, yet simple and technically near-perfect, Nudes is a celebration of the human body that establishes Bitesnich as one of the masters of black-and-white photography. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
