Item description for Jean-baptiste Mondino: Guitar Eros by Jean-Baptiste Mondino...
Jean-Baptiste Mondino's digitally processed photographs and video clips radically changed the commercial strategies of the rock, pop and fashion industry and made him a guru of the trade. Yet, Mondino originally started as a disc jockey and composer. Music is still his favorite subject and the electric guitar his favorite instrument. No wonder, ever since Picasso and Braque created their first guitar still lifes, this instrument stands for the mesmerizing combination of music, erotics, and modernism. In his new book Mondino presents his guitar photographs created over the past twenty years as commissioned works or his own projects. They portray famous rock and pop musicians such as Mick Jagger, Madonna, Tom Waits, and Keith Richards; models and celebrities with guitars; and numerous anonymous guitar players. Central subject and the undisputed star of each picture, however, is the guitar itself.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jean-baptiste Mondino: Guitar Eros?
Buyer Beware, You're in for a Treat Jan 15, 2008
The photos in this book are simply wonderful. There is great style and feeling for the guitar, which is the centerpiece is just about every picture. However, the cover is a bit misleading, as there are no real nudes between the covers. However, this does not detract from the quality of the photos in the least. It just may not be what people are expecting, considering the titillating front cover. Thoroughly enjoyable.
