5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ellen Etc. VINE VOICE on December 13, 2008
The artist has painted friends' bodies and set them in natural environments, so that both the beauty of the body and the beauty of the world become apparent.

The book is very reasonably priced and, with this production quality, one would expect to see it priced at $60, at least.

There are not as many "interactive" couples as one sees on the cover, which I appreciated. I didn't see this as a book of erotic photography, unless one thinks that nude bodies are inherently erotic, but it does bring the viewer back to their senses.

Obviously, this book is a labor of love by author and publisher. It makes a wonderful gift for people who enjoy art, photography, nature, the body -- and a LOT of color!

Jean Paul Bourdier has created a stunningly beautiful piece of art in this book of photos and essays taken on his several trips to the dessert. His 'eye' captures both the rich colors and the shifting contours of life. Do yourself a favor and get a copy of this beautifully done book.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Doug A on August 27, 2009
Jean-Paul Bourdier has created a one of kind masterpiece. The genius and creativity he exudes is unparallel. The rich colors on the nude models, blend with light and earth to mesmerize your senses. His photos capture the whimsical, yet sharp reality of nature. The models are stunning, and very dedicated in their efforts to bend with the landscape. The tenacity to find these locations, color the bodies, with just the right light is just astounding. Book includes DVD, with behind the scenes footage.

I bought this book years ago, but I STILL go back to it and look at it even now. It is a thoroughly captivating book of photography. I don't think I've looked through a book of photography over and over like this before or since. The photographs are fascinating, beautiful, and even humorous in a few of them. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in modern art or unique figure photography.
