""Fetish Girls came out in 1994 and I immediately moved with my family from New York City to San Francisco. I wanted a different light to shoot by. I went from a studio to shooting in a classic Victorian mansion. I'm still a fetishist. I live with my muse, Gwen, and my children. I made about a dozen more videos and two books of photo sexual narratives involving Gwen entitled ""The Transformations of Gwen"" Volumes 1 and 2 (NBM Publishing). I am more interested in capturing intimate sexual 'play' than before. The players have to be in heels, hose must be within frame, rubber nearby, with a hint of leather. It is the game of pleasure that I seek on film. Don't come naked to me. Come with attitude and kneel or stand above me. My audience is particular, born as it were, from Fetish Girls."" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

A glorious tribute to his predecessors it may be, it is nonetheless a delicious exposé of the incredibly creative work that he himself has created over the years. Beautiful, succulent beauties are flaunted throughout, adorned in an endless variety of kinky clothing and erotic toys. And they are bound, they are knotted-up, they are bent over, spread-eagled, spanked, shaved, and suckled. They pose powerfully as dominators; innocuously as sexual furniture; and provocatively as they shove their crotches in our face.
Through it all, Eric Kroll's talent as a photographer and portraitist stands paramount. And we are left with what might be his finest publication to date and a book that is unquestionably a must have for any serious collector. And Taschen is set to release a version in hardcover for the first time ever later this month.

Eric Kroll is a photographer whose body of work documents a large segment of the world of erotic fixation. His women come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They dress in leather, vinyl, lace and almost anything else you might care to imagine. They use paraphernalia such as whips, ropes, clips, clamps, and things I cannot mention here. Some are submissive, some are dominant and almost every variation in between is also represented.
Many of Kroll's images are beautifully posed and thought out, combining sexual lushness with a fine aesthetic sense. Other photographs are almost purely documentary. The original edition "Fetish Girls," with 200 pages of images is a vast summary of Kroll's work at the time (1994) and reveals much of his interests, his skills and a curious sense of humor. The miniature edition offers less, but the editing choices are good. At my age, though I find the smaller images require a bit of squinting. Printing is better in the larger edition as well. Unfortunately it is currently out of print, but it is still readily available from resellers and used book dealers.
Both the photographer and the fetishist will find "Fetish Girls" of interest. As a photographer, Kroll has had a great deal of influence in the field of fetish photography in the thirty years he has worked. It is hard to find a photographer in this genre that hasn't been influence by Kroll, and few have his breadth or technical skills. As a fetishist, Kroll shows himself has having a wide range of interest and a sympathetic approach to many of the varieties of sexual experience. He is by no means an extremist, though, and avoids the violence and rough sex of some of his competitors. Perfectly normal people will also find much of interest in this landmark volume of erotic imagery.
