The Mammoth Book of Illustrated Erotic Women
Carroll & Graf

October 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This follow-up volume to the black-and-white Mammoth Book of Erotic Photography celebrates the female form through these studies by top photographers around the world, as well as some impressive new talents. It features the work of 78 photographers (many of whom specialize in nudes), with approximately 8 images each, as well as a short biography and picture of each contributor. Included is a larger than ever number of female photographers, many of whom intriguingly practice the art of self portraiture-a chance to see how gender can sometimes influence the subtle way of looking at the body. There's also a father and daughter team; a photographer who also appears as a model in two other portfolios; the grandson of the famed American photographer Edward Weston; a mix of professional and amateur photographers; and...

X Pose: Photographs By Peter Jirmann Jr

·
 
Book Description
Acclaimed photographer Peter Jirmann’s focus is the female nude but his pictures reveal as much about emotion and personality as they do the contours and surfaces of the human body. His images capture his subjects’ ironical outlook on the world. Jirmann meticulously plans each shot before he actually takes the picture—the camera angle, the pose, the setting—so that nothing is left to chance. His are intensely erotic images of devastatingly beautiful women, each masterfully composed in a way that tells a story and becomes the basis for dreams.

Erotic Art Photography
Alexandre Dupouy
1859958192
April 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Erotic photo art has lost much of its exquisite soul since Playboy and other girlie monthlies repackaged the human body for massmarket consumption. Ever-bigger print runs of increasingly grotesque photos of women in every imaginable position have edged out emotion and reduced erotica to mere physical sex appeal. Only in the late 1970s did great men like Helmut Newton and Mapplethorpe come to the fore with high-quality art photography. As leading expert and collector of erotic art Alexandre Dupouy points out, "In the past 40 years, most photographers captured women’s bodies in sexually arousing positions, with only a handful of true artists trying to capture the erotic aura that women radiate." This book is a journey through a century of collector’s photographs that set forth how our perception of woman has...

Paper
The ideal gift for the person you want to stuff your stocking, this deliciously dirty book details the inherent relationship between voyeurism and photography from the 20s to today. Photographers from Atget to Mario Testino have caught friends, lovers and strangers in all stages of the act. Whether it's teenagers in a rec room or an unexpected flash of girl pie, these beautifully presented images are hotter than a yule log.

Book Description
"Voyeurs are not hard to please. They want to look upon sex, sex parts, the settings of sex. They like their sex hot, cold, sweet, sour. They want it at night and in broad daylight, mysterious and seedy, sun-dappled and wholesome. Fundamentally, they want their pleasures snatched from the vine like stolen fruit. They want in another words to...

Book Description
We are all, it is said, looking for love. But what does love look like? Does it look the way it feels? The visual vocabulary of romance-its attendant comforts and vulnerabilities, ambivalences and unclarities-is the subject of Venus Inferred. This collection of 46 richly reproduced color photographs is Laura Letinsky's study of contemporary lovers as they are seen, as they show, and as they see themselves making love and inhabiting domestic space. Entering what might be called the intimate sphere, Letinsky's camera explores a space too personal to be termed public and yet whose cultural and emotional shape is uncannily recognizable. Over a seven-year period, Letinsky visited lovers in their homes, hotel rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens and recorded in detail the promises, disharmonies, and...

In the Studio
Tom Bianchi
0312243049
Oct 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
For years, Tom Bianchi thought certain of his photographic studies of male nudes were unpublishable, too frankly erotic. Then a mentor explained to him that "the better pictures were the ones which took the viewer behind closed doors." For In the Studio, Bianchi frees himself from all restraints, reveling in male bodies galore. (If artwork that contains even the suggestion of sexuality offends you, consider yourself warned.) Quite a few of the photographs play with the idea of images and representation, as Bianchi poses his models in front of life-size drawings and mirrors, and even makes the occasional appearance in the mirror himself, a camera held tightly to his eye. In Richard/Bound, Bianchi reenacts the Prometheus myth, substituting a gradually ripped jockstrap for the eating of the liver, bringing the series of...

From Publishers Weekly
You mean people don't read Playboy for the Nabokov stories and hard-hitting reportage? Sturdily produced, this is a candy-colored, unpretentious gaze over a half-century of nudity, fun, sex and the most absurd fashions this side of Cukor's The Women. Playboy was genuinely shocking in its youth, but these 250 color pictures, compared to what's out there now, emphasize control and stardom. Here's the first centerfold, Marilyn Monroe, as the "Golden Dream." Here are Ursula Andress, bent in half like a cupid's bow; Pamela Anderson and Dorothy Stratten; the sensational Russ Meyer "actress" Edy Williams floating across the sinuous blue of the perfect swimming pool. Herb Ritts's photographs of the models Stephanie Seymour, Cindy Crawford and Elle Macpherson are suitably iconic, as are David Bailey's tawny Catherine...

The Naked and the Veiled
Yorick Blumenfeld
0500542309
Oct 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Erwin Blumenfeld shot to fame in 1938 with the publication of 14 sensational nude photographs in Verve magazine. The commission led to a career as one of the most gifted and sought-after fashion photographers of the '40s and '50s. However, throughout his career Blumenfeld remained fascinated with the naked female form and its representation within photography. In The Naked and the Veiled: The Photographic Nudes of Erwin Blumenfeld, his son Yorick traces Erwin's fascination with the nude to his visit at the age of 9 to an artist's studio in Berlin. Surprised by the young boy's entrance, the naked model "quickly threw a diaphanous cloth over herself. But the outline of her body was still visible against the light." Inspired by this moment, Blumenfeld later claimed that women could become "even more naked by their transparent...

Thomas Ruff Nudes

Hardcover

Book Review
Girls, girls, girls. And well-endowed boys. They're the subjects of Thomas Ruff Nudes, a book of photographs by a well-known German artist best known for his searching images of faces, night skies and architecture. The new photographs were pulled off Internet porn sites and enlarged, colored and blurred by the artist. The fascinating thing about these nudes is the way the indistinct tumble of imagery replicates the physical sensation of sex. Everything is hazy, incomplete, replete with longing--a giddy carnival of orifices and sex organs. Skin is suffused with the blush of sexual arousal. Women offer themselves to unseen men and to one another. Some might say that Ruff is "making a statement" about the easy availability of pornography. Nonsense. He is documenting, in his painterly way, the elemental human urges that attract...
