Pressestimmen

"Of course there's the curiosity. What do I look like? Sometimes disappointment, sometimes pleasure. But it's not just about me: Jock makes the whole world look remarkable--like heaven. He lets me see my own world in a new way."--the voice of one of Sturges's subjects, from Elizabeth Beverly's introduction
"[Sturges's] gelatin silver prints luxuriate in textures of sand, flesh, cloth, tide pools and gentle waves. . . . superbly printed, expressive in their modulations of light and joyful tonalities . . . the high mark of Sturges's work is its naturalness, its gentle attentions to the pleasure that can be found in life."--"The Boston Globe"
" . . . Sturges's people are grave, well-formed, and poetic. Best to think of his world as an inviting fiction: one phtographer's Eden, where a little knowledge doesn't get you expelled from the garden."--"People" magazine

Synopsis

A collection of black-and-white photographs by an acclaimed and controversial artist offers unique and artistic nude studies exploring youth, family, and intimacy in the modern world.

Before reading this review or this book, please be aware that it contains many consensual nude images of male and female children in family settings. This book would not be able to get an "R" rating if it were a motion picture. If such things are offensive, read no further.

Jock Sturges is creating a time-lapse view of a handful of familes. This book is the second in the series, following the superb work called The Last Day of Summer. In this book, most of those who posed for the photographs were asked to describe the experience. Here are a few quotes from what they said:

"We are not naked for the pictures, we are naked for the summer, and because we are alive."

"We are in the places we love, and Jock comes and joins us for a while."

"This I enjoy."

"In these pictures, we're Jock's people."

"Jock is the artist and we're his collaborators. Each year we get to help make art."

The images are done with a large format camera and reproduced in gelatin silver prints. The models often help set up the equipment and suggest scenes to shoot.

Mr. Sturges takes photographs each year, and publishes them. From these images, you can see the subtle changes in the person, how their relations grow with siblings, friends and parents, and the inner core of the person that is unchanging. His subjects are people who regularly practice naturism in Europe and the United States. So he is capturing them as they would normally be.

Taken outdoors usually, the images can acquire an almost lyrical quality. One image in this book deserves special mention. I think it is the best I have seen of Mr. Sturges's work. The image is of Alisa, Christina, Misty Dawn, and Teresa in Northern California in 1993.

In Radiant Identities, Jock Sturges conveys the experience of pure existence on a very high aesthetic wave length.
This may explain why some people are extremely uplifted by his simplicitous settings and the magic stares of his posers.
This may as well explain why other viewers get intense adverse reactions or just don't get it at all!
The aesthetic wave length is not experienced by one and all.
Some people hate classical music and some find it boring. This has to do with a clash of wavelengths and NOTHING to do with the validity or quality of a work - especially as a work lives on from century to century!
In this aspect, Sturges' art is legitimately awe inspiring and capable of sending the viewer on an endlessly expanding wave of mystery and beauty.
But it was ALL DONE WITH NO PROPS! no gimmickry, no explanation. Everything stripped away to its pure essences. It's pure energies.
Hustler, Playboy, et al DO NOT achieve this wavelength but aim with the intention to titillate.
The erotic aspect of nudity, when delivered on an aesthetic wave is more spiritual, innocent and healthy for society: IT INSPIRES!
If someone doesn't get what I'm saying, well, I understand. They're reception is simply blocked.

ya know,i've seen this book,almost as many times as i've seen quite confusing reports of child pornography.... see,i also know the difference between pornography and the human body.most american('t)s have this wierdness about them that the human body IS pornography,but i wasn't censored on my way out of the womb...however,they DID cover me up,because it was late march,and cold.but that's not the point.the point is you cannot call art pornographic just because you have personal issues with the human body.for pornography,something MUST BE GOING ON.in mr.sturges's photography,there's no movement that you don't create yourself,and that's what makes either art or pornography. incidentally,mr.sturges's model "misty dawn" has so much going on in her eyes,i wrote and recorded a song entitled,"misty dawn",which actually captures what i mean(it's an instrumental).i don't become inspired by porn models,it's just something that doesn't happen....so how do you explain that?

I've read so much about Mr. Sturges work that my curiosity wasgrowing until I've seen "Last Days of Summer" in anoffline-store - and I decided not to buy it. This book was announcedby Mr. Sturges as the first book he was able to set up in the way he have had intended his work - to show a kind of "change in time", so I've bought it. My feelings are still mixed - all the beauties are in the best sense artistically perfect photographed, no flaws, and they're beautyful in their youth ... but (may be it's my fault) I'm unable to see behind the plain surface of the pictures. It looks for me like the old tintypes set up in a studio, everything well arranged - "don't move! " and click. Life is another thing.

Von Ein Kunde am 19. November 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The latest Sturges work, Radiant Identities, focuses on adolescent youth and beauty with a sensitivity few photographers have been able to achieve, or at least, publish. His work is soft and gentle, yet it does portray a feeling of the budding eroticism inherent in his youthful subjects. Their eyes mirror both their dreams and their youth, the entire work flows with this same special theme that we should all be allowed to remember from our own teen years.
