Reviews - What do customers think about Frank Rothe: China Naked?
An unusual and strongly recommended photo Dec 2, 2007
"China Naked" is a unique compendium of men and women of the Chinese mainland that Frank Rothe was somehow able to persuade to pose nude for his camera. These full length frontal nude shots are interspersed with scenes from China's urban streets and buildings. This book of color photography is enhanced at the end with brief but insightfully informative commentary by Frank Rothe on how he came to be in China and take these images, as well as commentaries by Celina Lunsford and Christoph Tannert on Rothe's images and work. The text is dual-lingual (English and German). "China Naked" is an unusual and strongly recommended photo album for personal, professional, and academic library Photography reference collections.
