Love Song: The Erotic Photographs of Arnold Skolnick.
Photographs by Arnold Skolnick.
Quantuck Lane Press, New York, 2008. 128 pp., 55 tritone illustrations, 9x10½".
These photographs were taken in the early 1970’s for a book on sexual love. At a time when people were jailed for depicting acts of intimacy, artist and photographer Arnold Skolnick made some of the most memorable and erotic images of the twentieth century, many far too sophisticated for the book for which they were taken. Of the few that were exhibited at the time, a critic wrote: “These photos give the forms of two people making love the grandeur and power of sculpture. One is, of course, reminded of Rodin.” With good reason not to promote them, Skolnick stored the negatives and contact sheets away for over thirty years, but he did not forget them. Now, having reached his seventieth birthday, Skolnick has gone back to the work, to produce an extraordinarily beautiful lovesong—a lush and highly sensual celebration of the union of man and woman. LoveSong features fifty-five stunning tritone images, printed in Italy, and is bound in full satin, with a satin slipcase. The edition is limited to 3,000 copies.
