"The most talented glamour photographer of the time was Masaya Nakamura... Nakamura stood out from his colleagues by producing harmonious, original compositions showing models with serene, absorbed faces and a modesty and grace that make them unforgettable. The images highlight the sensuality of their bodies, captured amid a sophisticated interplay of chiaroscuro. In Ema Nude in Africa (1971), Nakamura cast a loving gaze over the nude body of Ema, one of the most famous top models of the time. His photographs showed her as the symbol of an elegant, refined civilization in the primitive, unspoiled setting of Africa, in the midst of extraordinary landscapes and remarkable fauna such as elephants, lions and flamingos."--Bertolotti, Books of Nudes, p. 180-1.

Condition: Very Good, minor flaws around the edges. Overall, one of the best copies I have seen, minimal handling signs, bright interior pages.
