Product Description

Review

""Fetish Girls came out in 1994 and I immediately moved with my family from New York City to San Francisco. I wanted a different light to shoot by. I went from a studio to shooting in a classic Victorian mansion. I'm still a fetishist. I live with my muse, Gwen, and my children. I made about a dozen more videos and two books of photo sexual narratives involving Gwen entitled ""The Transformations of Gwen"" Volumes 1 and 2 (NBM Publishing). I am more interested in capturing intimate sexual 'play' than before. The players have to be in heels, hose must be within frame, rubber nearby, with a hint of leather. It is the game of pleasure that I seek on film. Don't come naked to me. Come with attitude and kneel or stand above me. My audience is particular, born as it were, from Fetish Girls."" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Its the mini form of the bigger pictoral story of fetishism in the 20th century. This book is a good place to start if youre not sure if this is your kind of thing, covering a wide range of subjects and subject matter. Rubber and bondage are the main subjects on show, as per usual, but Kroll takes the odd risk here and there and this isnt, by any means, your average run of the mill ... Credit where credit is due, and this is an excellent place to start your fetish photography collection.

Format: Paperback
Fetish Girls is Eric Kroll's blazing, 200-page tribute to all the photographers, models, and fetishists that have inspired him through his life: Nam Paik, Weegee, Man Ray, Elmer Batters, Betty Page, Bunny Yeager, Eric Stanton, John Willie, Irving and Paula Klaw, Bill Ward, and Marcel Duchamp, just to name a few.

A glorious tribute to his predecessors it may be, it is nonetheless a delicious exposé of the incredibly creative work that he himself has created over the years. Beautiful, succulent beauties are flaunted throughout, adorned in an endless variety of kinky clothing and erotic toys. And they are bound, they are knotted-up, they are bent over, spread-eagled, spanked, shaved, and suckled. They pose powerfully as dominators; innocuously as sexual furniture; and provocatively as they shove their crotches in our face.

Through it all, Eric Kroll's talent as a photographer and portraitist stands paramount. And we are left with what might be his finest publication to date and a book that is unquestionably a must have for any serious collector. And Taschen is set to release a version in hardcover for the first time ever later this month.

A very dated and badly photographed series of photos. Not even much care has been taken to dress the women. The large fat women were a no no!

Its a reasonable book with a good variety of images, in my opinion its an ideal intro not for the advanced fetishist or photographer.

Eric Kroll's Fetish Girls 30 Jun. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I find the photography in this amazing book to be most beautiful, erotic, creative and deliciously deviant. This sensual coffee table book was given to me as a gift from my boyfriend. As soon as I opened the first few pages, I realized why he chose "Fetish Girls". A part of me was in every photograph. I have since given this book to many, many friends--I know they, much like myself, will treasure these captured moments for a long, long time.

Eric Kroll: The World of Fetishism 17 Nov. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kroll is perhaps the best fetish photographer laboring the fields of fantasy. "...Girls" is an exquisite work and worthy of gracing the most daring of coffee tables. The highly charged erotic images in this book will haunt you for weeks; visions of equally exotic and weird women in provocative states of dress and undress. Kroll demonstrates that fetishism is--for many men and women--both a way of seeing the world and a way of life. Highly recommended for the collector

To Each His Own 5 May 2001
By Marc Ruby™ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Webster, ever polite, defines fetishism as a fixation of sexual interest on a part of the body, on an article of clothing, or some other device. The key word is fixation, obviously, not the object itself. Given the American male focus on breast size, one could argue that a very large percent of the population are unofficial fetishists. In truth, we all are. Few of us do not have favorite parts and fantasies that enhance and focus our sexual experience. And few fetishists are totally focussed on a particular fantasy to the exclusion of other forms of fulfillment.
Eric Kroll is a photographer whose body of work documents a large segment of the world of erotic fixation. His women come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They dress in leather, vinyl, lace and almost anything else you might care to imagine. They use paraphernalia such as whips, ropes, clips, clamps, and things I cannot mention here. Some are submissive, some are dominant and almost every variation in between is also represented.
Many of Kroll's images are beautifully posed and thought out, combining sexual lushness with a fine aesthetic sense. Other photographs are almost purely documentary. The original edition "Fetish Girls," with 200 pages of images is a vast summary of Kroll's work at the time (1994) and reveals much of his interests, his skills and a curious sense of humor. The miniature edition offers less, but the editing choices are good. At my age, though I find the smaller images require a bit of squinting. Printing is better in the larger edition as well. Unfortunately it is currently out of print, but it is still readily available from resellers and used book dealers.
Both the photographer and the fetishist will find "Fetish Girls" of interest. As a photographer, Kroll has had a great deal of influence in the field of fetish photography in the thirty years he has worked. It is hard to find a photographer in this genre that hasn't been influence by Kroll, and few have his breadth or technical skills. As a fetishist, Kroll shows himself has having a wide range of interest and a sympathetic approach to many of the varieties of sexual experience. He is by no means an extremist, though, and avoids the violence and rough sex of some of his competitors. Perfectly normal people will also find much of interest in this landmark volume of erotic imagery.

Eric Kroll does it again, and again and again. 16 Feb. 2003
By J. Hancock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the few well known American fetish photographers has put out a book of splendor. The imagery is wonderful and the women are masterfully depicted in the fetishs and their beauty. Certainly a pleasure to veiw and to own.
