Franco FONTANA "NGS AMC Artman Club Galphy Series #98" 1984 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Franco FONTANA, photographer. “NGS VIP Members Club Galphy Series #98: Franco Fontana.” Japan: Nippon Geijutsu Shuppan, 1984, First Edition, HB, Slipcase, 30 x 22 cm, 60 single-side color plates.

NGS Artman Club publications were available by subscription only - not in bookstores - this allowed NGS to circumvent Japanese censorship standards. Usually NGS publications of Western Photographers preferred either the Mediterranean beach nymphs of Jacques Bourboulon or David Hamilton; or either the full-figured legs-akimbo models of Suze Randall or Leslie Turtle. This volume of nude photography is unlike every other NGS publication that I have seen, however. Fontana chooses to exclusively focus his camera lens on torsos in multiple combinations - no faces whatsoever. Unlike Clergue's images of curvaceous torsos in beautiful natural settings, Fontana's photos are geometric and abstract.

Condition: Excellent, in the original brown slipcase.
