Vito von Eichborn, 1983 First edition Softcover, 128 pages, 165 x 240 mm Condition: Very Good
Elisabeth B. (a social worker in Germany) spent two months working in a peep show in New York close to Times Square. Driven to the job by necessity, she originally avoided all eye contact with her customers. As she became more used to the situation, she slowly began getting interested in these men. Elisabeth placed a hidden camera, set up with a self-timer that she would trigger just a moment before the curtain went up. Reversing the roles she became the voyeur, capturing the men from the other side of the glass. She also managed to interview some of the men coming out of peep shows and incorporated it, with her own thoughts, in this publication.
Of the 700 pictures taken only half of them were technically usable. This is not a photobook in the common sense, as the pictures are used as illustrations to the text rather than the other way around. Nevertheless, Elisabeth's work is a exceptional documentation on men's nature and the fascination of desire.
