Joy and magnificence in Valentine's Day staff pick, 'Elder Sex'

Featured spreads are from Marilyn Minter: Elder Sex, JBE Books’ beautifully-produced and celebratory monograph based on the artist’s recent work for a New York Times feature on the joys and challenges of sex after seventy. In her aptly-named catalog essay, “Screw it, this is who I am,” New Yorker writer Naomi Fry states that Minter's work "shows us that we are human in our fullness, in our repellent and attractive parts, and, too, that what counts as repellent can also often be attractive. In the Elder Sex, photos, Minter is unembarrassed to put on display what we are not used to seeing—what culture thinks we don’t want to see—and there is joy and magnificence in that gesture. The bodies that Minter depicts heave and pulse with sensation and texture, giving us something radical. They’re real, and they’re spectacular.”
