TIMELESS BODIES (the calendar) is a beautifully-crafted, oversize calendar with one image per month, with a discrete monthly bar running along the bottom inch of this 17" tall x 12" wide restrained color calendar. With select images from Vance's two books (HEAVENLY BODIES, May 2009: ISBN-13: 978-3867870191; and TIMELESS, April 2006: ISBN-13: 978-3861879848) this is a wonderful selection of skillfully photographed, and keenly edited photographs of the male nude. I'd call the images on the front and back "teaser" images because of their departure from the simple elegance of the monthly images. Alternating monthly between color and black and white, this calendar is but a brief sample of images contained in the two coffee table books of Vance noted above (TIMELESS is also available in paperback...but the hardcover edition is more desirable.) Never gratuitous in his photographic images of the male figure, each image is a departure from the previous: strong, subtle, and espousing a new classicism absent in the preponderance of male nude photography today. What's best about this calendar other than its large size and spiral binding (easy for hanging) is knowing "there's more where these photos come from" specifically referring to TIMELESS and HEAVENLY BODIES. If you haven't purchased your calendar for 2014 as of yet, this is one to add to your collection. Previous calendars of Vance's have only increased in value (2011's EROTIC DREAMS averages $300 brand new, and $120 "used"; 2010's HEAVENLY BODIES averages $150 "used" and over $350 brand new. Vance's 2002 ATTRACTIONS calendar is out of print and unavailable, unless you're willing to search the 'net and pay a premium.) What's great about Vance's work, in addition to its scope, subject matter and masterful lighting and composition (OK, the models aren't bad either!) is that it's also an easy entrance into collecting photography, whether choosing from amongst his many coffee table books (JUNGLE FEVER, and his latest, MEN & GODS, Nov 2013: ISBN-13: 978-3867876353) or ordering limited edition prints, signed and numbered, from him directly <[...]>. So treat yourself to TIMELESS BODIES in both calendar and book form (June 2013; ISBN-13: 978-3867875363). You'll be pleased you did. Masterful imagery from a great photographer who is clearly aiming for, and headed for, the stars. Just beautiful.
