""When Jock Sturges first started to make pictures of my family, we immediately realized that these moments meant much more for all of us than merely producing good photography. Being part of Jock's photographic project has everything to do with first of all becoming part of his family."

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, your reaction will certainly depend upon your own beliefs about what is appropriate subject matter for general publication. Mr. Sturges makes most of his pictures in France,(and some in the rural 'hippie' communes of Northern California) and, as was pointed out in the play 'My Fair Lady' the French don't care what they do, as long as they pronounce it properly. However, don't expect to see typical 'glamour' photography here. These pictures are set in peoples actual living spaces. There is beauty to be found here, but it is closer to reality than any fantasy dreamed up for sexual purposes. These are pictures that will make you think. So, is this art? As some judge said, I know it when I see it.
I also recommend that fans of his work view the Naturist DVDs Amazon has like: "Castle Naturism" and "4th of July". These types of works may not be possible in the future. Camera equipment is no longer allowed on the beaches in Montalivet, the Southern French town in which Sturges photographs.
