"In Bear Pond ... the portraitist and photographer Bruce Weber dwelt on the plastic beauty of the athletic male body. His sculptural nudes are often very natural and relaxed, and are reminiscent of those by the German naturist photographers of the inter-war years; the fascination they exude is of an unmistakeably homoerotic nature." -- Alessandro Bertolotti, "Books of Nudes" Dust jacket shows faint rubbing at some corners, no tears.
