Overview

Master Breasts: Objectified, Aestheticized, Politicized, and Eroticized by Photography's Most Titillating Masters. Introduction by Francine Prose; The Detective by Karen Finley; The Story of the Tiger by Dario Fo. Breasts by Charles Simic. Photographs of breasts are everywhere: in museums, on book covers, in fashion ads, and on posters. Most of the great photographers of the twentieth century have snapped their shutters at the breast. Alluring symbols of womanhood, breasts have fascinated generations of imagemakers, both male and female. Here, for the first time between two covers, is the breast in photography: the titillating breast, the mother's breast, the aging breast, and the symbolic breast. In Master Breasts, the darkly witty political images of the 1990s jostle for space with Edward Weston's classic nudes; Nan Goldin's friends share pages with Robert Mapplethorpe's gorgeously sculptured models. Alfred Stieglitz's classic studies of Georgia O'Keeffe; Mary Ellen Mark's vivid documentary portraits; they are all here. Other artists whose work appears in Master Breasts include: Cindy Sherman, Imogen Cunningham, and Sally Mann. 124 fourcolor and blackandwhite images, 9 3/8 X 11 3/8, 112 pages. Hardcover.

"Master Breasts, a gorgeous coffee table book of photographs, is a thinkingpersons guide to breast mania... Intelligent and surreal, this art book is not for the faint of heart."

Patrizia Dilucchio, Whole Earth Magazine

This was the best book ever available on big breasted nude women. I would highly recommend it to those few people who are interested in this rare phenomenon.
