More About This Book

Overview

Radiant Identities. Photographs by Jock Sturges. Introduction by Elizabeth Beverly; Afterword by A. D. Coleman. Whether photographing on naturist beaches in the south of France, in the communes of northern California, or in the affluent East Coast summer resort of Block Island, Sturges is at home with his subjects. 60 blackandwhite duotone photographs, 11 3/8 X 9 9/16, 96 pages. paperback;

"In superbly printed black and white reproductions, Radiant Identities brings forth the psychologically soft areas of youth and family. Although Sturges photographs are of today they evoke memories of yesterday and the life and color of the Old Masters. These profound images are drawn from the photographer's own family and acquaintances in their homes and on the beaches of France, the Netherlands and California. A quite unusual book of superb quality."

BrooX Sledge, The Book World

"More loving conspirator than voyeur, Sturges imbues each image with mutual intent, involves his subjects in the photographic process, and establishes an intimacy which becomes the book's greatest strength."

LS Quarterly

With Radiant Identities, the highly acclaimed creator of The Last Day Of Summer further explores the sensual and psycholgical territories of youth and family. Gorgeously printed black-and-white pictures evoke the classic spirit of Old Master paintings and late 19th-century photographic tableaux while probing modern concepts of sexual and psychological intimacy. 70 photos.

    The Comfort Zone

    As the father of six kids, I took the time to photograph my kids everywhere ~ we always went where the kids were comfortable and the kids posed as they were comfortable. Baggy pants, skateboards, surfing, babseball, hugging a tree. But none of these were nudes. Why? Because my kids aren't nudists. At no point would I have told my son to pose with a Barbie doll, nor would I have told my daughter to pose nude. Again, I wanted our photographs to be memories of my kids enjoying life the way they really did enjoy it. I'm not convinced that Jock is any different. He photographed kids as they were already comfortable that is obvious in these pictures. These kids don't look like kids that were bribed or coerced into doing something outside what is normal for thier lifestyles. I photographed my kids in their lifestyles, and Jock seems to have photographed these kids within their own comfort zone too. This seems to be a documentary of how these kids actually live and how one man is a visual genius. I recommend it ~ if it is within your comfort zone.

    Viva Sturges!

    When I unexpectedly came across this book on the shelf one day (that was before the days B&N had to start hiding such books from Christians), the beauty of the cover photo literally brought tears to my eyes. Svelte Misty Dawn seemed the essence of innocence and femininity--absolutely gorgeous and honest--and I had to buy the book. The book was clearly a step up from Sturges' first work 'The Last Days of Summer,' which seems overly restrained in retrospect. This book is well titled: the faces really do radiate charm and personality, as I immediately detected from the cover photo. In this book I could really catch the feel of summer living in an idyllic resort, indoors and outdoors, and it reminded me of my happy childhood long gone. Many thanks to Sturges for reminding us that beauty and innocence still exists in this world of angry, repressed, hysterical, and clothed adults.

    Wonderful Art

    This was a magnificent representation of the human form in its youger, more innocent stages. I feel that this is what a few of us call a lost art form. It was wonderfully done by a true artist and a well experienced photographer!
