This is a rare, vintage and out of print copy of IN SEARCH OF ADAM: A PHOTOGRAPHIC ODYSSEY, a hardcover book published and distributed by RHO-DELTA PRESS in 1975 featuring the nude male photography of photographer ROY DEAN. Cover shows wear. This 76 page hardcover book measures 9" x 12" includes book jacket which shows shelf wear.. Author notes, “It may be of interest to the viewer to know that this entire book was shot on and around the Lake Powell area of southern Utah. Because of the Glen Canyon Dam and the rising waters of the lake, only one of the forty-two locations used here still exist. The others now lie sixty feet under water.”
“Features mostly black and white with some color photos. All the men are masculine, handsome and muscular and seem to be having a great time."
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
Roy Dean was born August 2, 1925, in Kent, England. His acting career started with parts in local children's plays and continued in England through his teenage and young adult years, including an acting stint with the Shakespeare Company and broadcasting for the BBC. In the early 1950s, he moved to New York to work in theater before moving to Hollywood in 1955 to appear in film and television. Besides acting, Dean has worked as a stage designer, director, writer, and photographer. As a photographer, his work has been shown in several exhibitions and numerous magazines. His first book of photography A Time in Eden published in 1986 was one of the first to bring male nude imagery to the masses. His books include Before the Hand of Man, Adam Today, In Search of Adam, The Ecstasy of Eden, The Naked Image, and A World of Nudes. He died June 24, 2002, in Palm Springs, California.
