Sunbathing in the Mediterranean (1982)

An inescapable fact of Mediterranean summer life is the unadorned, human body. Whether it is the heat, or the flamboyant spirit in the Mediterranean character or a culture imbued of the early Greeks and Romans, it is inescapably present: the human form, pressed into the sand, cooking and bathing under the hot sun, exposed, unashamed. In a way the body melts into the sand and scalloped canopies. In another way, stained by the sun, it stands out, a proud flower of the godesses.
