Angels, yes -- 7 Nov 2008
By wiredweird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
But the title suggests a monomania about grooming that the photography doesn't carry through on. Some of the models do shave, but at least as many keep their natural, fuzzy look. Ignoring that bit of misdirection, Lorenz actually provides quite an enjoyable collection of nude photos. Although uniformly European in coloring and usually twenty-something, the models present a range of looks. That look tends toward the natural, and away from the polished polyethylene appearance of so many "glamor" models. One even presents herself at a grand stage of pregnancy, happy to share those curves with the camera.

Photos were taken seemingly everywhere but the studio: restaurants, industrial sites, and outdoors in urban and rural settings. Except for one bad case of goosebumps, the women all seem comfortable and happy posing. Outside of each model's unique appearance, however, these pictures seem to lack depth. Any photo of nude adults has some erotic sense, but that's never pushed very far. Likewise, explorations of form, mood, and composition generally don't go very far.

But, if you just want good pictures of attractive women, and if you didn't get hopes up based on the title, then go ahead - this offers plenty to enjoy.
