Sara Perovic: My Father's Legs

$25.00

A tender, lighthearted homage to a father's "beautiful legs"

Croatian-born photographer and architect Sara Perovic's mother once told her, I fell in love with your father because of his beautiful legs. With this small paperback photobook, Perovic (born 1984) has created a tender, humorous study of her boyfriend's legs, as a stand-in for her father's, depicting them in color against various backdrops--aboard a boat, indoors, standing on a bed, or on the tennis court--isolated from the rest of his body. She laments that her father's love of tennis kept his attentions away from her when she was a child, and a short series of full-figure portraits of him delivering a backhand shot in flipbook style concludes the volume, along with a coda from the photographer: And now my daughter's father has beautiful legs.
