Would You Let Your Daughter?
Fashion photographer Parkinson here presents a merry hodge-podge of camera shots all aimed at women. ""Intelligent eroticism,'' says he. From the pages of Vogue, Town & Country, etc., and the artist's own picture file, this handsome volume of smashing if overblown design and pixy-minded text offers as its climactic bouquet mischievous portraits of the author's personal dream girls (E. Taylor, E. Lauder et al.): 17 in all. En route, there are assorted ballet turns, nude/clad contradictions, closeups, full-length abandon, world-class name models in various states of agitation, and recurring fashion-type poses fixe by the same young model in titillating nudity who seems to be angry about something. A heavy romp and lots of fun for sophisticated, non-feminist devotees of visual explosion in photography. December 232
