Product Description

About the Author

Combining her love of pin-up photography, music and art with personal ideals of female empowerment nurtured in DIY culture, Missy founded SuicideGirls as a place where a woman can be herself and where her confidence, creativity and uniqueness are what defines her. While it is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Missy found the camera lens of mainstream media a bit myopic for her taste. SuicideGirls began and has grown from a desire to expand mainstream culture's definition of what is beautiful, and to show that it can be realized in a more diverse range of women than those who grace the pages of most fashion magazines and movie posters. What started for Missy as personal expression has now become a revolution.

Raised in Portland, Oregon in what could be described as an eclectic and artistic environment, Missy combines her traditional fine arts training with new media business acumen in the operation of SuicideGirls. In addition, Missy continues to photograph women for the site. Her photography focuses on depicting how each model feels sexiest about themselves in the photos and has inspired a generation of young women to embrace their bodies and showcase their confidence.

Since launching SuicideGirls, Missy has become a voice for the culture on sexuality outside of what mainstream media is reporting. She has been interviewed on issues relating to music, the Internet, pop culture and body image on numerous radio stations and in publications such as the New York Times, Wired, Spin and Elle. Recently featured as one of the top "12 Sexiest Jobs in Hollywood" and the "20 Sexiest Jobs on the Web", Missy has appeared on HBO, Fox News, the new hit series "CSI: NY" on CBS, as well as the two SuicideGirls movies in constant rotation on Showtime. She hosts a weekly SuicideGirls talk radio show on LA's Indie 103.1 and was recently chosen to model as part of peta2's 2008 "Ink, Not Mink" celebrity, anti-fur ad campaign.

This book should be given away when you join their website, basically it is around four hundred pictures of around four hundred girls most of which are not that good, each page has one girl on it with their details, so you can look them up on the website.

Basically this is like an modelling agents reference book for girls on their books and not a very good one at that.

A clever move by the SG Company, but leaves a bad taste in the mouth so to speak.

I've heard people describe the Suicide Girl cult as 'feminist porn', a point of view which many feminists, myself included, would not entirely subscribe to and as for 'beauty redefined', the jury's out there as well.

The book starts out by proclaiming itself as a challenge to mainstream 'cookie cutter' ideals of beauty but to be honest, parading exactly the same body type, page after page, and then proclaiming it challenging just because of a few edgy poses, piercings, tattoos and the odd pair of big boots (that's BOOTS) isn't what I would call redefining anything - especially not when the body type in question is hardly distinguishable from that peddled by the mainstream anyway. At least there was more than a hint of pubic hair, which is unusual in our depilated age, but it's not exactly what you'd call diverse.

If you're thinking of buying this book for the 'aesthetic experience', then I'd recommend it. The shots and settings are both stylish and sexual, despite becoming a bit repetitive after a while (there's also some stunning tattoo work that's well worth a look). But if the book's title has led you to believe that you will be treated to a variety of body shapes and sizes, then don't bother. It's pert and skinny all the way I'm afraid, which becomes both tedious and incongruous with the claims that the book makes for itself.

Overall, I was disappointed with this book. I liked some of the aesthetic elements and can't help but admit that some of them really rang my bell but I had expected so much more diversity that I ended up feeling a bit cheated. In fact, despite it's ambitious title this book does not redefine beauty, rather, it provides a way for 'kooky erotic' to appear acceptable on bourgeois coffee tables.
