A sequel to "The Body", this volume contains over 300 images, discovered during a lifetime's discriminating research into a century and a half of photography. They represent love and desire in all its many forms: the love of parents for their children and vice versa; the love between men and women; between men; between women. There is forbidden love. There is love as a saleable commodity and love as a symbol of absolute generosity. There is love of the body and love of the divine. Sex, affection, adoration, adulation; all these words have their visual equivalents in these images.

UK Kirkus Review »
An archive which just about sighs with longing. Photographs from established greats such as Cartier-Bresson, Brassai and Man Ray, together with their contemporary heirs-apparent, form this document of desire - a celebration of the body at its most succulent and vulnerable. A follow up to the astoundingly successful The Body. (Kirkus UK)
