Sitting features a selection of vintage photographs by a previously unknown photographer named John K., who had a passion for photographing nude women sitting on all manner of unlikely things: pies, cakes, bread, fish bowls, cats and vegetables, both indoors and out. This select edit comes from a much larger archive of hundreds of John K. photographs owned by Eric Kroll, himself a well-known fetish photographer, collector and editor of several books on the subject of erotic art and photography. In addition to the text, Sitting includes one photograph by Kroll himself as an homage to John, who, he admits, showed him a perspective on the art of photographing women that he had missed. "There was not a format or type of film John did not use to photograph women from 1959 to 1976," writes Kroll. "From the bearskin rug in his east LA living room to a photo studio along Hillcrest Avenue in Los Feliz (LA), young women appeared, sometimes more than once, in his photos. I think these photos had a dual purpose for him: to paint from and to get off on, sexually. The work runs the gamut from classical nude to extremely intimate. But if the definition for pornography is gratuitous imagery to sell, then John wasn’t a pornographer. I can’t claim he didn’t feel there would be a certain immorality to his work (since he, as an old man, scribbled names and dates on the backs of his images taken years earlier), but I suspect the women never imagined their most private parts would grace a gallery wall." Nor the pages of this book, Sitting.
