A sequel to "The Body", this volume contains over 300 images, discovered during a lifetime's discriminating research into a century and a half of photography.
They represent love and desire in all its many forms: the love of parents for their children and vice versa; the love between men and women; between men; between women.
There is forbidden love. There is love as a saleable commodity and love as a symbol of absolute generosity.
There is love of the body and love of the divine. Sex, affection, adoration, adulation; all these words have their visual equivalents in these images.
