Gabriele Rigon has skyrocketed to international acclaim over the last decade and has become one of the world's most recognized and respected artistic photographers of the female nude. His black & white nudes absolutely radiate elegance, and his unique vision of beauty and sensuality are an inspiration. And it's been featured in numerous books, anthologies, magazines, and websites.
The Best of Modern Italian Erotica is Gabriele's first published book, which makes it an immediate must-have for all serious collectors. This is a great book! Produced in a flawless, large format, it features 160 of Gabriele's exquisite black & white nudes as well as several sets of soft, erotic material featuring girl-girl and girl-boy models. Almost every image is titled and dated, and most of the images fill the entire page, edge-to-edge (which is awesome). The title is a bit confusing, as this is not a cross section of various Italian photographers, as it might imply. But beyond that, this book is solid venture into the work of a truly great artist. Rigon is a true credit to the genre of black & white photography, and our only hope is that this is the first of many more books to come.
