This is a rare vintage and out of print titled SUMMER SOUVENIRS was written/complied by KEN HAAK and published and distributed by ST. MARTINS PRESS in 1984 and features the nude male photography of photographer KEN HAAK. This 96 page hardcover book measures 11” x 14”. See photos for condition.
A leading New York fashion photographer captures the summer world of the human male in a collection of photographic images.
That shortest of all the seasons, the season of longest days -days of crystalline waters and cerulean skies; of searing light and the smell of salt air and suntan oil. The sounds of gulls and crickets, the taste of ice and berries, the feel of burning sun on amber skin, and reflections of white sand in sea-blue eyes. The afterglow of pearlescent sunsets and memories of long, hot, starry nights, of promises kept and broken.
Those sentimental tokens of places and things and times past; of experiences glad and sad; reminders of those we love and cherish and those parted. And most treasured of all, those snapshots displayed on dressers and pinned to walls and stored away in the albums and shoe boxes of our minds. Here then are a few souvenirs of summers gone, of moments stopped in time, recorded in fractions of seconds that now evoke memories of shared experiences and hopefully, for others, the possibilities of summers to come."
