Synopsis

In Naked Babies Nick Kelsh and Anna Quindlen collaborate to produce a unique view of babiesone that owes nothing to tradition sentimentality or the cult of the cute. Unlike traditional baby photographs Nick Kelshs amazing black-and-white pictures focus on specific aspects of babiesthe perfection of a hand the swirls of a cowlick the smoothness of skin on the neckand all are honest exquisite and invitingly tactile. Anna Quindlens essays are as graceful snappy perceptive and personal as anything she has ever written. They muse on what it is about babies that causes our hearts to crinkle and fold: The meaning of life is in them. Youll share some of the things that Quindlen has learned as a mother such as: From time to time I would lie on the floor with my babies to see exactly what they were seeing when it looked as though they were just wasting time and . . . The next time youre sitting in a meeting after three cups of coffee badly needing to go to the bathroom but instead doodling dutifully crossing your legs and watching the clock remember that if you were a baby you would have gone by now and no one would be the wiser. Kelshs photographs and Quindlens text complement each other perfectly. Two masters of their craft have created an unusual meditation and wondrous booka totally original gift for every parent or parent-to-be.
