Abstract:

In Naked Babies, Nick Kelsh and Anna Quindlen collaborate to produce a unique view of babies - one that owes nothing to tradition, sentimentality, or the cult of the cute. Unlike traditional baby photographs, Nick Kelsh's amazing black-and-white pictures focus on specific aspects of babies - the perfection of a hand, the swirls of a cowlick, the smoothness of skin on the neck - and all are honest, exquisite, and invitingly tactile. Anna Quindlen's essays are as graceful,

Snappy, perceptive, and personal as anything she has written. They muse on what it is about babies that causes our hearts to crinkle and fold: "The meaning of life is in them." Share what Quindlen has learned as a mother: "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 juxtapose babyhood with adulthood: "The next time you are 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 the wiser." Kelsh's photographs and Quindlen's text complement each other perfectly. Two masters of their craft have created an unusual meditation and a wondrous book - a totally original gift for every parent or parent-to-be.
