Jock Sturges: Misty Dawn by Jock Sturges
Book DescriptionOver the course of his career, Jock Sturges long-term engagement with his subjects has been a cornerstone of his work. Misty Dawn, one of his primary and most popular muses is one such subject; he has photographed her for twenty-five of her twenty-eight years. Lithe, beautiful, classically proportioned, she is the personification of Sturges philosophy of being at home in ones body. This work follows her growth from a shy, tomboyish child to a gorgeous, confident young woman. Taken as a whole, this series of images presents a unique, fully realized portrait of a blossoming individual and explores a rare and beautiful relationship between photographer and subject. "Misty Dawn: Portrait of a Muse" presents iconic images as well as previously unpublished material, mined from Sturges older contact sheets and newest work.

Jock Sturges, Hardback (November 2014)
Offers an extended portrait of a young girl's transition from child to woman. Made over a period of twenty-three years, this title features images that are at once beautiful in their detail of light and identity, as well as frankly anthropological in their descriptive effect.
Last Days of Summer, Hardback (June 1997)
Magical in detail, these photographs of the people whom Sturges cherishes most are a collaboration of trust and admiration. Phillips's compelling prose both illuminates the images and explores the unending sensuality and complexity of the bond between mother and child. 60 duotone photographs.
