In My Own Words:
My name is Joaquín del Castello Gilbert. Since 1998 I have worked as the editor of Michelle7, which is an online publication devoted to artistic nude and erotic photography. I have always loved and respected photography books, and my position has allowed me to review hundreds of titles, most of which have been focused on artistic nudes and erotic photography.

Private Pornography in the Third Reich by Hans Von Bockhain
A collection of pornography created during Adolf Hitler's reign of power in Germany is bound to saturated with preconceived notions. Hitler's strange quirks and pecadillos are well known. But other than being the Führer, he and the Third Reich itself have nothing to do with this work.

As his subjects posture and pose - seemingly for some unseen onlooker -… Read more
Naturally Sexy : My Naughty Weekend Diary by Michael White
'The weekend is just around the corner - so why not take a trip to your house in the country and bring a pretty girl along'. This simple thought led to an entire book of nude photography as British designer and photographer, Michael White did just that.

Using his own country estate as the shooting location, Michael White photographed a massive number of mostly-naked young women in his fetching, colorful style. It's a regal body of work and his subjects cover a wide variety of tastes - blonde, brunette, redheads, etc. They are captured in teasing fashion as they parade about in their undies, stockings, and other boudoir-like attire revealing highlights of their gorgeous nude… Read more
