American photographer Wingate Paine is best known for his controversial book of female-centric photography, Mirror of Venus. The book, published in 1966, features intimate photographs of women posing, playing and frolicking, often in the nude, in a fantasy world of unspoken thoughts and innocent actions. This vintage framed Wingate Paine print continues his exploration of private moments, seductive spaces, and that ever-present cloud of Mid-Century repression.
