Taken between 1878 & 1914, these images are rich in atmosphere & tranquil sensuality, capturing not only the idyllic beauty of their subject, but a rough-hewn quality that evokes both classic & modern sensibilities. The sixty photographs presented in this hauntingly beautiful volume are among the handful of original images that remain of von Gloeden's once considerable oeuvre.
