Beautifully photographed and presented album of nudes,
By A Customer
This review is from: New York Girls (PostcardBooks) (Paperback)
Looking through this album, I was immediately impressed by how well staged and photographed all the models featured in the book are presented. However, the eroticism of the book constantly verges on the worst kinds of cheap porn and male fantasy; given the skill of the photographer and the beauty of his models, these references are more ironic and humorous than unpleasant. However, the overwhelming felling you receive on looking through this book is a discomfort arising from the divide between artisitic eroticism and cheap thrills..... being destroyed, and you're not sure which are the reasons for which the book is enjoyable. This was probably the photographers' intent, though.
