The Age of Innocence
'Young girls reaching the Age of Innocence - embody the promise of life at its fullest.' In this sumptuous collection of portraits, interleaved with lyrical poetry, David Hamilton explores the sensuality and complexity of virginal innocence. A beautiful, large - format volume, featuring more than 200 pages of color and monochromatic images. The settings, the subjects, and the elegant dance of light and color will all be familiar to long - time admirers of David Hamilton, who, in his dreamy, romantic imagery, pioneered a style that has never been equaled. These graceful works are nothing less than an ode to youthful beauty and innocence - images that are at once universal and personal, timeless and fleeting.
