With an original gelatin silver print by the artist (also numbered and signed by Probst). - From the publisher: "Several years ago, photographer Ken Probst was hired to photograph pornographic film actors for publicity pictures and video boxes. Once on the sets of California's most notorious industry, he began to photograph behind the scenes, revealing the absurdities, pathos, and business of the pornographic film industry. These photographs, whether they portray an elaborate sexual situation or actors waiting between takes, are remarkable documents that observe the banality of manufacturing desire. Their tongue-in-cheek "decisive moment" is often more comical than sexual, leaving the viewer to wonder how the filmmakers get from these amateurish vignettes to the polished sheen of a billion-dollar industry."
