HEADS - Alex Kayser

First edition. Oblong 8vo. 127pp with b&w photographic plates in illustrated glossy wrappers. New York: Abbeville Press, 1985.
Wrappers a little bumped.

'A hat designer, Punk musician, sculptor, fireman, professional rent-a-Buddha, heavyweight boxer, peace movement worker, gourmet chef, United Nations official, dog trainer, chiropractor, sanitation worker, Marine Corps pilot, tire retreader - these and many more: 184 men and women with only one thing in common. They are bald. Unmasked, void of make-up and shorn of hair, stripped of civilised disguise, what does a human face say? And how does it make us feel?'. Striking photo book including a conversation with Kayser on the making of this series and an afterword by Richard Howard.
