5.0 von 5 Sternen natural, timeless, time-lapse family images of mutable youth
This is the best book I have seen for introducing and explaining Jock Sturges's work.

Before going further, let me warn readers that this book contains many female and male nudes of young children that would fail an "R" rating if contained in a motion picture.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is the best book I have seen for introducing and explaining Jock Sturges's work.

Before going further, let me warn readers that this book contains many female and male nudes of young children that would fail an "R" rating if contained in a motion picture.

If you do not know his work, Mr. Sturges works with an 8 X 10 camera outdoors (usually in nudist resorts) to capture the emotional, psychological, and physical development of his young subjects. They are usually filmed in the nude so that you can see more aspects of their development, and are usually accompanied by parents and siblings to express those familial relationships. By repeatedly photographing the same subjects, you capture a sense of the person which is constant, in the midst of the dramatic growth and transformation of a child into an adult. The images in this book are much less overtly nude than those in his more recent work, and are important foundations for comparison with photographs of the same models in their late teenage and early twenties years.

I particularly liked the essay by Jayne Anne Phillips. For those who are new to Sturges, this essay is a must. She understands and explains his work very well. He sees "the selves that will live in these children all their lives . . . . " " . . . [W]e are animals and angels, approaching the light of redemption with an intrinsic fear of flame." "But we were never safe, not really . . . . "

These insights are extended in the afterword by Jock Sturges in which he explains the origin and purposes of his work very well. "When I work, I try to interfere as little as possible." If models arrive clothed, he photographs them that way. If they arrive nude, he does the same. "As I come to know my subjects better, I learn more about myself." And the book's title is bound to this statement, "I make my best work with the last days of summer." There's not much time left, and his knowledge of the children and their families is at its peak at that moment.

The work itself is very subtle and well reproduced. In some of the more playful images, the children are dressed in what could be either angel or fairy outfits . . . making them seem both very ethereal, yet impishly young. I especially liked the photograph of Misty Dawn in Northern California in 1989 that is of this sort.

My favorites in this book included:

Lisa C.; Northern California, 1981

Katherine; Montalivet, France, 1987

Fan Chen; Northern California, 1986

Marie-Claude et Valentin; Montalivet, France, 1987

Weist Family; Block Island, Rhode Island, 1984

Pete, Mike, and Christine; Northern California, 1987

Catherine and Angela; Block Island, Rhode Island, 1987

Gaelle, Marine, Valentin, et Marie-Claude; Montalivet, France, 1987

Minna; Northern California, 1980

You get a feeling of a great comfort with oneself, one's family, and one's surroundings from the photographs in this volume.

After studying it, you might want to think about how you can shed the "unnatural" cares you have that interfere with the expression of your truly loving, and most natural self. I also suggest that you look at photographs of yourself and your own family over the years to see what is constant about each of you.

Capture the best of what is lasting, before the leaves fall in October!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Overall a very nice work., 30. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Taschenbuch)
Some have suggested that this text reveals the "sin nature" of humanity. As a conservative, Christian, theologian I would argue just the opposite. The photographs contained in this text show nothing that is sexual or even sinful at all. What I see are excellent works of art that reveal the beauty of the human body (in all shapes, sizes and ages) as created by God.
While the text focuses primarily on the female form, Sturges looks at males and families as well. Overall a very nice work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen But I Digress..., 11. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Taschenbuch)
What strikes me about the controversy surrounding Sturges' work is that when I look at these photographs, I do not see sexuality and pornography -- I see haunting images and poetic reflections on age and beauty and memory...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lovely Work, 24. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Well crafted photographs of naturalists, mostly in the seemingly obligatory beach milieu. Many of the subjects are living 'the last day of summer' -- that is, the particular halcyon moment of adolescence wherein anything is possible. Yes, they are predominantly nudes, but photographed with respect and compassion. A special few are among the finest portraits I have seen, truely bringing forth the soul of both photographer and subject. My only complaint is that some of the pictures in the book inexplicably cross the fold in the binding, disrupting the image. A slightly smaller format on just one page would have been prefered.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible Collection of Photographs, 11. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Taschenbuch)
Jock Sturges creates images, not of nude adolescence, but of emotion, power, and beauty. He has captured generations with his camera, showing images from childhood to adulthood. More so, Jock has achieved what many photographers and arts cannot. He has attained that trust and opened up the emotion of his subjects. If one looks his subjects eyes and face, rather then just shallowly looking a "young nude child," you can see the real power of Jock's work

5.0 von 5 Sternen A beautiful masterwork, visually stunning and sensitive., 10. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Taschenbuch)
In "The Last Day of Summer," photographer Jock Sturges brilliantly attempts to capture the emerging, radiant beauty and sexuality of adolescence. Although most of his books have been derided as "child pornography" by certain conservative forces here in the U.S., they most certainly are not. To fully understand his work, one must not simply look at the pictures but delve into the many articles that accompany his art in his books. These girls and boys come to Jock, year after year, with their parents' consent (and their PARENTS even pose nude with their children in many of these images). This is the epitome of TRUST between subject and artist. This is not pornography. There is no sexual intimacy portrayed anywhere. It is a celebration of the beginnings of adolescnent life...a celebration of the beauty which Nature has given. It is a return to the sensual and beautiful works of the past. -JLC, Virginia

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sturges' fine nudes draw ire, 24. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Gebundene Ausgabe)
A few families have been given the gift of having their lives chronicled by a master photographer. Jock Sturges books chronicle the passage of time through the lives of several families, who are photographed naturally at a nature retreat in France. The lineage of the human family is at its most noble in these images of parents with their children, brothers with their sisters, families with friends... It is the soul of humanity and family that is depicted in Sturges' fine work, in a manner that (thanks to its nudity) is as timeless as the human spirit itself. Propagandistic attacks upon his work because of the natural nudity are, while perhaps honestly felt, are misplaced.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Some beautiful photos, 18. Februar 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Taschenbuch)
The book could go deeper: ends up being a bit of a travelogue. But some of the images are hauntingly beautiful. I'm not all that partial to black and white, but Sturges's book reveals what is special about B&W.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Taschenbuch)
I am a student in Canada aspiring to become a professional photograher and find Jock Sturgess,s work of supurb quality. I could only hope to achieve such personal works in my future career. I would like to know more about the author not mentioned in this hardcover or in radiant identities. Once again thanks to Jock for the quality of tasteful material in artistic expression.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Day of Summer (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is the book caused all the controversy and launched Sturges' phenominal career. Beautiful photography. I also recommend other Naturist books like Holy Nature and Family Naturism in America.
