Bibliographie : Roth: The Book of 101 Books Parr & Badger: The Photobook, vol I : 226 802 photobooks from the M. + M. Auer collection Bertolotti : 194 1968 - First edition / Black and white. Hard covers. Stitch bound. Text in French. Good condition. 14 x 10.75". 114 pages. "The problem would seem to lie in the fact that erotic photography is not required to venture beyond the trite and obvious. The subject matter is enough, so why do more? It is, of course, a tricky subject, but is nevertheless a potentially fascinating one. As well as revealing gender and social mores, it overlaps with important issues of life and death, yet most of the photographers who have attempted it have dealt with it only superficially. Furthermore, many of those who do try to take it seriously become so serious that they generally fail to maintain the lightness of touch and the sure-footed step necessary to carry it off.Les Erotiques du regard (The Erotics of the Gaze) by Marc Attali and Jacques Delfau largely succeeds in this delicate balancing act. It is a frank meditation on the male gaze, an essay in pictures and a kind of concrete poetry where the typography has equal status with the imagery. Unlike many of the so-called erotic books from the 1960s the 'Free Love' era Ð Les Erotiques manages to examine the phenomenon of the male gaze, whilst at the same time doing the classically male thing of gazing."
