Love and Desire

Love And Desire

You could look at Love and Desire — Ewing’s sequel to ”The Body” — as a thoughtful exploration of the power of photography to capture the psychosexual complexities and ambiguities of human longing. Or you could look at it as a bunch of dirty pictures. Either way, it works for me (hey, get a look at the aesthetics on that one!). Two centuries’ worth of provocative pictures — ranging from vintage family photos to slick Robert Mapplethorpe prints to hardcore French postcards — are assembled in this 400-page paperback, making it the perfect stocking stuffer for the arty onanist on your holiday gift list.
