Elaine Walker: [singing for David] The book of love is long and boring, no one can lift the damn thing. It's full of charts and facts and figures and instructions for dancing. But I love it when you read to me, and you can read me anything. The book of love is long and boring, and written very long ago. It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes and things we're all too young to know. But I love it when you give me things, and you ought to give me wedding rings. Original song by Magnetic Fields.
The book offers a new look at the history of photography through the prism of love relationships. Built like the two sides of a record, Love Songs: Photographies de l'intime (Photography and intimacy) brings together the work of 16 artists who have placed their own intimacy at the center of their photographic creation.
Featuring works by René Groebli, Nan Goldin, Nobuyoshi Araki, JH Engström & Margot Wallard, Motoyuki Daifu, Larry Clark and many more, the book explores the diverse ways in which different kinds of love, intimacy, sex and affection are expressed in photographs. 153554b96e
