In this volume, he discusses his interactions with the families and individuals for whom he has acted as community" portraitist for over a decade, and presents his preliminary "sketches," in the form of Polaroids and other small-format camera studies that he makes before following through with a finished image, ultimately taken with an 8-by-1 0-inch view camera. A selection of these preparatory studies accompanies several of the finished works included here, offering visual testimony to the complex process and inspiration that underlies each of the gorgeous images his audience has come to love for their remarkable clarity of vision, "Jock Sturges: Notes offers unique insight into a renowned artist's creative process.

Book News Annotation:

Photographed in naturalist communities in northern California and southern France, these images of mostly nude children and adults (some in family groups) will spark the usual praise or criticism for the controversial work of this well-known photographer. Sturges comments on his creative philosophy and relationship with his non- professional subjects, and includes remarks by a woman on the experience of being photographed by him since childhood.
