The Book / The acrobat sublime

How do we choose a book?

The book I am suggesting to you for this second issue is way too easy to love.

Private Acts, The Acrobate Sublime, by Acey Harper is my choice.

I personally pick a book if it captivates me. There are days where I just feel like I want to buy a book and finally no matter the book I will fulfill the need; or I will spend hours looking for something with the power to change my life [of course It will not change it].

There are days instead where I just stare at something infinitely and the choice is already done.

There are books that merit our attention.

I am sharing that with you because even though you will not buy it, this book deserves to be known.

This is my selection of photos, which I personally find most impressive.

These stunning photographs by Acey Harper expose the art of the acrobat, where muscle and concentration conspire to defy mortal limits in the San Francisco Bay and all the rest of California. I still do not know what, in this article, to emphasize, either the quality of the photographer or the beauty of these bodies. I guess both are central and the two elements make this book something special.

These acrobats were denaturalized of their habits of training and performing in a circus environment. No customs, no make up were involved. They were taken away from the glamour flash, and everything associated with circus, in favor of a black&white light. Asked to wear as little as they felt confortable, these acrobats were photographed by Acey Harper who put them into particular locations creating a magic result.

Let’s try to open the website and flip through the pages as if it was a real book. No matter if we buy it or not, what’s essential is to capture the essence of these three years’ work and support the author with a Like on Facebook or Follow them on Twitter. Is that not what counts nowadays? And who knows, probably among all the followers there will be a buyer… at least I hope.
