Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, 2017. First edition. Hardcover with transparent plastic dust jacket, 240 pp., 125 b/w and color illustrations, 250 x 340 mm. Photographs by David Lynch. Design by Atelier Dyakova.
Ten years after the exhibition The Air Is on Fire, which unveiled David Lynch’s photographic and painting work, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain brought together in a book featuring more than a hundred black-and-white and color images of feminine nudes realized by the artist. These erotically-charged photographs are close to abstraction, offering kaleidoscopic visions of the woman. They attest to David Lynch’s fascination with the infinite variety of the human body, while being in line with his cinematographic work.
