Overview

“Robert Greene is not like other artists—or rather other artists are not like Robert Greene. Greene is like a diamond in the rough—one of those unexpected gifts that come along every so often.”
—Jerry Saltz

“With an abundance of wet, hairy nudity and tropical hues, Greene evokes summer at its sexiest and most seductive.”
—Vince Aletti

Painterly rhythms have seeped their way into Robert Greene’s world of photography in Hairy, a collection of Greene’s images taken over many years, in many places, of many dogs, and many hairy men. An undercurrent of über-masculinity and its sexiness is revealed, yet not in the familiar form of muscular, hard-jawed, clean-cut youth. Instead, Greene celebrates a more restrained and naturalistic virility.

Greene’s photographic eye is full of adoration for his subjects and their environments. There is a very intimate, personal feeling here; one not posed, but observed and captured. Greene shifts from long-range portraiture, to close-up shots where specific textures, shapes, and tones become the subject of the image. This abstraction weaves a visual spell, such that even those without a predilection for hirsute men will be enthralled. The photographs provide the space for longing, imagination, and adventure. Hairy is an unusually quintessential book—portraying an incredibly focused and fleshed-out vision of a very beautiful, hairy world where man, dog, and nature swirl together.

Hairy will be released in conjunction with an exhibition at Robert Miller Gallery in New York City.

From the Publisher
“A freak show of backs that need combing, legs that must get tangled up in each other on the beach, bottoms that require a centre parting.”

    Horrible book; don't waste your $$

    This book is an incredible rip off:
    a. Photos of dogs and wispy meadows were not what I had in mind when I
    purchased this book, but that's about 1/2 the content.
    b. The photos that are in the book are low quality, in my opinion.
    c. One whole nude photo. Oh boy!!!
    d. Spend $20.00 at Dudesnudedotcom and you'll spend 1/2 the price of this
    book and get a lot better return for your money.

    In summary, (if not already obvious) this is a terrible book.

    Think Twice

    I was very disappointed when I received it. More images of dogs (K-9 type) then then the eluded subject matter. Some photos are hard to figure out. Lot of blank pages. Not worth the price or time.
