Over the course of his career, Jock Sturges' long-term engagement with his subjects has been a cornerstone of his work. Misty Dawn, one of his primary and most popular muses is one such subject; he has photographed her for twenty-five of her twenty-eight years. Lithe, beautiful, classically proportioned, she is the personification of Sturges' philosophy of being at home in one's body. This work follows her growth from a shy, tomboyish child to a gorgeous, confident young woman. Taken as a whole, this series of images presents a unique, fully realized portrait of a blossoming individual and explores a rare and beautiful relationship between photographer and subject. "Misty Dawn: Portrait of a Muse" presents iconic images as well as previously unpublished material, mined from Sturges' older contact sheets and newest work.

Ich will mal versuchen, eine Rezension zu schreiben, die diesem Buch gerecht wird:

Misty Dawn - Nebliger Morgen. Ein geheimnisvolles und verspieltes Pseudonym eines Mädchens, dessen Heranwachsen Sturges in traumhaften Bildern festgehalten hat.

Ja, der Name passt. Wir begleiten ein fantasievolles junges Wesen, das sich völlig entspannt ihrem Spiel in der Sonne, am Strand, im Camp hingibt, allein und mit ihren Freundinnen, völlig frei und ohne störende Kleidung. Manchmal aber scheint sie direkt aus der Theateraufführung zu kommen, mit lustigen Kostümen, bisweilen auch gekrönt von einem kleinen Heiligenschein.

Unvergleichlich aber die Aufnahmen am und im Wasser. Das Bild auf Seite 37 ist einer der schönsten Rückenakte, die ich kenne. Ganz schmal, die Hüfte leicht eingeknickt, scheint sie von Wassergeistern und Elfen zu träumen.

Oft wirkt sie ernst. Sie wird älter. Am Ende begegnen wir einer erwachsenen Frau und Mutter - die ihren Weg gefunden hat.

Ein wunderschönes Bilderbuch! Ein Traum! ein Erlebnis!

Average - But Worth Getting if a Fan 21. November 2008
Von Steven A. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Misty Dawn hasn't been one of my favorite models/subjects that Jock Sturges has used over the years, but I bought this book anway as I very much enjoy his photography and I've liked some pictures of Misty in the past.

Did I enjoy this book? Yes, pretty much. Would I reccomend it to other fans of Mr. Sturges? Yes. But am I particularly excited about it? Not so much. I liked his other new book "Life Time" (which was just released) much better and I highly recommend Sturges fans buy that one from Amazon as well (though Misty is only featured once in it).

I would like to see Jock devote another book to a single model, one found in "Life Time" named Adele. That I'd find more interesting.

About the pictures in this book, they're all up to his usual standard of excellence. If you're familiar with his past work and remember the picture of Misty Dawn and two other girls sitting behind a window with two panes of glass missing... you'll probably find it interesting (as I did) that he brings Misty and those two girls back to that very same window frame about 5 years after the original and once more about 5 or 6 years after the second.

If you're a fan of Misty Dawn, buy this book. If you're just a fan of Jock Sturges in general and collect his books, but you're on a tight budget and are trying to decide between this one and his other new book... buy "Life Time" first and save this one for later.

Professional still lifes 30. Januar 2009
Von R. Overall - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Originally assumed Sturges would be a bit of a pedophile, but none of this work (or his others) are obviously erotic. Rather these are family pictures, of gentle, casual nudity, just as so many great photogs did casual pictures of people in everyday life. Yes, the jaded can insert eroticism, but I found the pictures to be friendly, as I would approve (with care and caution) for my own daughters and sons. Sturges admits to a factor of eros, but that exists in mainstream magazines, films, etc., to a much greater extent because they are intentionally sexy, and try hard to become borderline porno. In Sturges' work I found no porn, no sexiness, no commercial push, just a pleasing image, as one would find a great artwork, a landscape, a fine wine. The beauty of young women, and I admit I'm smitten with Misty Dawn, is timeless, clothed or not. Along with Hamilton, I find Sturges' work calming, a reminder that there really is beauty in the world, not just the everyday ugliness (like Hollywood glamour). Real people, real beauty, real world. If you aren't comfortable with honest nudity, don't buy this art. I'm a man, and not at all ashamed of appreciating the opposite sex, as I have discovered they appreciate men and boys. Sex isn't dirty, and doesn't need to be pornographic to be enjoyed. Put in its proper place(thanks mom and dad), such as art, it can simply be appreciated for what it is. I like portraits, whether face or full body or in between, and these portraits are lovely. If your friends aren't dirty-minded, this is one of an assortment of great coffee table books.

A unique portrait 16. November 2008
Von wiredweird - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Any one photo captures a person for one instant. This collection presents twenty-four years of the woman's life. Not just a model, Misty Dawn is Sturges's friend and inspiration. That friendship comes through clearly in this progression of photos. The earliest shows a solemn girl, maybe seven years old. Even then, she confronted the camera directly. That self-possession, plus a face with a strong beauty even then, remain constant throughout.

Later pictures show Misty Dawn growing through her coltish early teens, blossoming into young adulthood, and having children of her own. Since she comes from a naturist family, she most often appears wearing only her native charm. That lets the viewer trace each stage leading up to the full womanly beauty of the last pictures, probably around age thirty.

Other one-model collections exist, including some very good ones. They all present one stage of the model's life, though - just a few days or months of her life. Since this covers the large majority of the model's life, it offer a unique view, not just one moment, but all the passages she has experienced. But it doesn't just show Misty Dawn herself, it shows Sturges's view of her as a lifelong friend, and that adds immeasurably to this incredible montage.

An Honest Appraisal of "Misty Dawn" 1. Februar 2009
Von MC - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have structured my response in the most honest way I possibly can - not concerning myself with what the left or the right thinks, the religious or the non-religious would have us believe, or what many of those in the "justice" system would seek to pervert and crucify for.

I have found that the more I study Jock's images of young girls, several things start to become apparent to me. First, by the mere presentation of these adolescents in predominately B&W format, and obviously not posed in some provocative fashion, immediately dismisses them from being pornographic in any way whatsoever. Any person of reason would have to readily admit that. His images force us to become comfortable in our own skin.

Some of the images can be erotic initially, (and I suppose to a certain element, very erotic) but only because of the culture in which we Americans were raised - that all people nude are perversions, and it is taboo for us to view them. But we all know that anything "taboo," or "off-limits" will only spark interest, not denial!

Little time passes before any initial reactions wear off however, and we begin to see inside these creatures - their innocence, their purity, their shining spirits - not yet tainted by the outside world and all of it's inequities and cancers.

I think that a review by "People Magazine" says it best: "...Sturges's people are grave, well-formed, and poetic. Best to think of his world as an inviting fiction: one photographer's Eden, where a little knowledge doesn't get you expelled from the garden[!]"

I sense that Jock's work gives us just a splinter of insight into the world that God intended ours to be... beautiful, peaceful, graceful, innocent, respectful, loving, forgiving, sensual, lasting, one of pure light.

If I were a female - like Misty Dawn - for example, I am quite sure that I would be most thankful and proud to be able to present such a wonderful chronicle of my life, and representation of my infinity, to my children one day, and to theirs, and on and on. What a beautiful, and priceless gift to be able to pass on.

And, what a beautiful expose for the rest of us to enjoy along with her!

Not Sturges' best work, still worth getting for a fan 17. Oktober 2012
Von A. Burchfield - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I remember that when I saw this book coming out I didn't even bother reading up on it, just ordered it because Sturges is that good. You essentially get Misty's life story in photographs from the first photo ( of her kindergarten class- fully clothed) on up to around the time of publication. I learned things about the lady I didn't know ( there's at least one picture of Misty with a step sister I'd have otherwise been unaware of and a portrait with her father and stepfather- the only one in any of Sturges' books).

Sturges technique is always good but while Misty Dawn seems to be a favorite model of his I actually prefer many of the earlier portraits. If you like Misty Dawn, you'll want the book, if you're just a Sturges fan you won't be too dissatisfied .
