Text in English, French & German. Among the many lusts that our physical, bodily existence has to offer us, this one is the greatest of all: wild sex, to unite with another person whom we love. Art that succeeds in depicting this union is always sublime and revered art. In their stillness and genuine directness, Gordon Denman's photos are art of this kind. That's how Gordon Denman has photographed these eleven couples and one menage a trois. These lovers always look natural, they look beautiful, exactly as they are. Naked or sparingly clad. After all, no one's watching. Except Denman's camera, but they don't let them disturb making love. A person who desires another and who isn't yet misguided by all the philosophies of love simply wants "it" -- and wants it now, with you, right here in this forest, this kitchen, this haystack, on this rug or under this shower; can't wait for the "right" place, the flickering candle and the flattering words. No, it's got to be now, without delay, and right here!
Gordon Denman used black-and-white film to capture these scenes and reduce them to their essentials: you and I, black and white, light and shadow, the earnestness of desire and our play with each other.
