The Face of Love. Sanne Sannes. A.S. Barnes and Company, South Brunswick, New Jersey / Thomas Yoseloff Ltd., London, 1972. First edition. Quarto. Cloth in photo-illustrated dustjacket. 23 pp. + approximately two hundred halftone photographs.
Sannes, a controversial Dutch photographer, explores aspects of sexual passion. In the text Jim Hughes (the editor of Camera 35), wrote: "Sannes did not make easy photographs. Certainly, he did not make pretty photographs. I'm not even sure he made photographs. He made explorations of people, of their outsides and their insides, and sent back picture postcards of their psyches." Far more provocative than most books of nudes. Sannes died tragically and prematurely in an automobile accident.
A fine copy; some short tears and creases at top edge of front panel of the dustjacket, minor chipping (approximately 1/4 inch) at top of jacket spine,
and minor old pale spots along extreme right edge and one larger
pale spot at bottom edge of back jacket panel.
