Book Description
During his long and successful career, Christopher Makos has photographed the most beloved and intriguing icons of our time-Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, Salvador DalÝ, John Lennon, and Andy Warhol, to name just a few. Now in a unique and original collaboration, Exhibitionism marks the genius of two of the world's most stylish and impeccable artists-Makos and Calvin Klein-convening to create a daringly evocative and intimately sensual portraiture of the male form. This extraordinary visual conversation began with Calvin Klein's visit to the photographer's studio, where the designer encountered a different side of the acclaimed photographer renowned for his images of Andy Warhol. Klein-one of the most influential fashion designers of the twentieth century-discovered a series of evocative portraits and powerful images that became the seed for this visually stunning project. Featuring over one hundred fifty photographs, ranging from brilliantly crisp black-and-whites to luscious colors to softly muted sepia-tones, Makos' photographs convey sophistication and na´vetÚ in seamless combination. These incredible images do more than just accentuate the nubile qualities of beautiful bodies; they also elevate and personalize our timeless fascination with the erotic. Here, Makos seductively lures the viewer into a celebration of all that is intimately desired in and aroused by the male form in a manner so sensitive that it appeals to men and women alike. With each photograph hand-selected by both Makos and Klein, Exhibitionism is the most intimate reflection of their collaborative vision, and unlike anything seen on the market today. Calvin Klein has reached the pinnacle of success in the fashion world due, in large part, to his fluid ability to think "big picture" over the long-term, while also maintaining a profound attention for detail. The worlds of Makos and Klein intertwine in this exceptional exploration. Klein's sense of style and art and Makos' photographic eye pace, magnify, and inform each other. The result is a book every bit as sexy, intriguing, and daring as the men who created it.
