In Eros, the subtle and profound nuances of the erotic nature of relationships between men and women are explored through a collection of black-and-white photographs that are coupled with inspired, passionate words. Among the photographers whose visions comprise this volume are some of the great masters - Brassai, Imogen Cunningham, Horst, Man Ray, Minor White, Edward Weston - as well as many celebrated contemporary artists - Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Hiro, Annie Leibovitz, Robert Mapplethorpe, Duane Michals, Helmut Newton, and Albert Watson, among others. Deeply involved as they are with the relationship between seeing and feeling, their images take us on a rich visual journey ranging from the eloquent beauty of the human form to the complexity of body language motivated by desire.
This compendium of expressive photographs is accented with a variety of literary selections drawn from the work of writers such as Margaret Atwood, Siv Cedering, John Cleland, E. E. Cummings, Michael Fried, Robert Graves, Erica Jong, D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, Anais Nin, Carson Reed, Dylan Thomas, and Walt Whitman. Embracing the spectrum of the erotic experience - from quiet intimacy and meditation to frank lust and reckless abandon - their words highlight the power of Eros not only to thrill and delight but also to uplift and transform.

A joyful, uninhibited and tasteful celebration of heterosexual love and the human body, this portfolio weds photographs by Helmut Newton, Edward Weston, Annie Leibovitz, Imogen Cunningham, Manuel Alvaro Bravo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Greg Gorman, Brassai, Man Ray and others to erotic prose and poetry selections. Earthy snippets from Henry Miller, Sallie Tisdale, D.H. Lawrence, Erica Jong, Frank Harris and Jeanette Winterson tie sexual delight to love, spiritual rapture, curiosity and exploration of self and other. Walt Whitman's incantatory lyric "This is the female form" seems perfectly juxtaposed with Barbara Brodnick's buxom Nude 1. Although the pictures have a certain sameness, there are dozens of strong, complex compositions in a variety of settings, and the poetry selections, ranging from Robert Graves and Muriel Rukeyser to Ezra Pound's translation of an ancient Egyptian ode, are marvelous. Lahr coedited Love: A Celebration in Art and Literature; Ferrer is a freelance picture editor. BOMC selection.
