Published for the first time in its entirety, the series unfolds as 32 images. They are like fragments from a suddenly veiled scene; all that appears, caught beneath the surface, is a mysterious tangle of thighs, backs, necks, breasts and hair. Anonymous gestures without a story. A sensual knot of bodies, without a face.

With only one recent series, printed on chronolux paper, this is surely one of the most nicely printed books of this photographer, who is more and more becoming well-known to an international public. By rephotographing images from an erotic seventies magazine, showing us entangled body-parts in what could be love or simply the sexual act as basic at it is, Braeckmann kindles our imagination and troubles it at the same time. With all of his previous books sold out and sought after collector's items we strongly recommend this book.
