Publisher's Description

Out of Print.

What might appear at first glance as a vacationer's slideshow quickly reveals itself as a multi-layered monograph, serving as both personal amusement and social indictment. Boris Mikhailov's photographs of a day at the beach with friends gently push and break the boundaries of what he sees as defining societal norms. They frolic and strike airy poses, imitating their self-conscious fellow bathers on this Crimean beach in the Soviet Union, under which Mikhailov suffered oppression as an artist. As they push harder against that very self-consciousness and against the traditions of the past, they begin to blur the intersection of public and private, exposing their bodies in an exhilarating rush of freedom.

NOTE: IMPERFECT copy has a 1/4-inch closed tear to the lower edge of the front panel of the dust jacket.
