Description

When Story of O was first published in 1954 in Paris by Jean-Jacques Pauvert, it narrowly escaped censorship by the Department of the Interior and eventually became the most widely translated French novel in the world. Now Doris Kloster, a photographer specialising in issues of women's sexuality and power, has realised a long-standing dream by creating a photographic representation of one of the most famous and controversial erotic novels ever published. The Illustrated Story of O presents over fifty superb images which mirror perfectly the intense eroticism of the novel. Schooting entirely in Paris and its environs, Kloster has succeeded in matching characters, locations, costumes and props to the original descriptions. Each colour photograph is accompanied by a short extract from the novel and together the portraits create a rich visual feast that will delight fans of Doris Kloster's work while appealing strongly to connoisseurs of the darker excesses of sexuality.
