Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Black and white pics caught in very dark noir and blanche light, as it flickers as women are caught in various twilight worlds of pain and ecstasy. This is the old version of pain and pleasure before it was given the lip gloss fantasy airbrush.

High art photographs of a night flicker dream world. Do not enter if you are offended easily.

The pictures are more unsettling (for me at least) than erotic, each person inscribes their particular meaning on the page as they visualise a mirror. They bring back the glowing sense of perpetual doom that inhabits the noir films of eternal pleasure mixed with never ending pain. Interesting to gaze upon, but I would be lost within the worlds depicted, a type of sexual Witkin, but forever ranging the view from another angle. This has a shock factor beginning with an X lessening with an exposure of the world.

Never Judge A Book By Its Cover 21 Dec. 2000
By "pezhydrox" - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book because of the cover photograph. Regretably, there are few other photographs within that have the same grace and directness, few where the subject is as strong. The majority of the pictures within would more appeal to the bondage or S/M fetishist. Although I am in no way a prude, I did not anticipate such a preponderance of that subject matter based on the cover design and the Amazon write-up. Without a doubt there is a great deal of skill and craftsmanship involved, and the photos are wonderfully washed and tinted, but there is much less celebration of the fullness of femininity here then I would have hoped for. Persons who enjoy bondage, flagellation and leather accouterments may rate this work higher.

Dark and Gloomy Photographs 5 Jan. 2001
By "max_c_w" - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The picture on the cover can be considered one of the better photos in the whole book. The first few pages of the book appears promising. However many of the photographs starts to take on a dark and gloomy feeling especially those with a S&M theme. The different shades and tainting of the photos only add to the gloomy feeling.
A few of the models in the book are fairly attractive and the photographer is able to bring out their beauty in a erotic and suggestieb manner. However almost more than half of the book contains photos of S&M and that may be the downside of this otherwise promising book.

Great style and variety of pictures 22 Mar. 2009
By David Jimenez - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bravo Ms. Hamilton, this is a great collection of pictures! Let's start with the bad things of the book... it's not perfect! Maybe not bad things, just things I don't like.

Basically every other photography book I have seen, even if they have a dust jacket (they normally don't) they have the picture of the dust jacket also printed on the cover. This book has a fabric cover, so, if you lose the dust jacket, you are indeed losing some of the pictures of the book (they are not inside of it).

The second bad thing... I didn't like that only the odd numbered pages (those on the right side) have pictures on it. The even numbered pages are blank except for the page number.

Besides that, well, the book is in my opinion a masterpiece, probably China Hamilton's Opus Magna. There is a bit of everything. From the most innocent nudes you can imagine, to some soft BDSM, and everything in between. A total photographic study of the woman's body. Dearly recommended. Something important is that, in my opinion, it should not be considered as erotic photography. Nude photography, yes, but most of this pictures are obviously not taken to arouse sexually, they seem to have been taken rather to inspire tenderness, innocence or female beauty beyond her sexual power.
A fine collection of erotica from China Hamilton 17 Aug. 2008
By gobo books - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I didn't know what to expect based on the other reviews. But this is a fine collection of hand-made prints from China Hamilton. Nearly every one of them would look great framed. I'm surprised that this book doesn't sell for more.

Eros-free erotica 4 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It is difficult to imagine an erotic photography collection being neither arousing nor artistic, and yet this is exactly what China Hamilton managed to achieve in this less-than-memorable composition. I can only pity these obviously beautiful models presented in such an unappealing fashion. If there is a hidden message here, I failed to see it. My recommendation: stick to the higher calibre artists; Sieff, Newton, Kroll, Kloster, Dahmane, Stuart.
