Jock Sturges (1947) is an American photographer, best known for his pictures of nude adolescents and their families. His photographs were mainly taken in communes in Northern California and in the naturist resort CHM Montalivet in France. Just like the work of photographer David Hamilton, the photos of Sturges are controversial, particularly in the United States.
About the book Fanny:
“Fanny is an extended portrait of a young girl's transition from child to woman. Made over a period of 23 years, the images are at once beautiful in their detail of light and identity and also frankly anthropological in their descriptive effect. A naturist since birth, Fanny's comfort with nudity and her natural self has allowed Sturges to draw an engaging portrait of the evolution of a human being with few social distractions. His access to the girl's and woman's character is direct and fascinating. Long known for his extended portraits of children and adolescents, this work is strong evidence of Sturges' permanent commitment to the people in his work.”
