Sexy Sports: Maximal Crazy Girls by Ralf Vulis
Sexy Sports: Maximal Crazy Girls by Ralf Vulis
by Ralf Vulis
Edition: Hardcover
6 used & new from CDN$ 316.57

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Fun!!!, Dec 16 2008
Cult photographer Ralf Vulis makes wishes come true for anyone who ever dreamt of watching young, vibrant girls playing a variety of sports ' without their team uniforms. Tennis, swimming, weight lifting, track and field are just a few of the disciplines in which the girls engage themselves. Created more in the spirit of fun then hardcore athleticism, the girls are a feast for the eyes as they struggle and strain, leap and compete. This is not filled with muscular, overly athletic women, although all the participants are in lovely shape, so it is meant more for the connoisseur of beauty than Spartan virtues. Expertly shot in black & white, the superb quality of the publication itself along with the witty, handsome content make this a worthy purchase for art collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream-like Erotica from an Amazing Artist!!!, Dec 16 2008
Santerineross' photographs are reality-bending composites born from the synthesis of his creative energy and dream interpretations. They are dark, foreboding, and at first glance .. fear inducing. Yet he's not what one would call a fetish photographer, nor is he a pornographic image maker seeking to tantalize. His work is a fiendish alchemy of symbolism, archetype, and erotica that when wrought together gives rise to grander sense of itself. It's like how one can get lost in the medieval nightmare of a Hieronymus Bosch painting, or they can revel in its artistic splendor and genius. The same can be said of John Santerineross as he weaves the malcontent elements of his imagination into a provocative and beautiful union. This is a large-format book (32x24cm) that is a wholly beautiful a production.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Vision of Artistic Erotica!!!, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: Guthier No 3 (Hardcover)
This is Norbert Guthier's third publication, and like the previous two, this book is packed full with very powerful imagery, much of it explicitly sexual. His previous books were superb and represented a wholly original vision of erotic art photography, but this one surpasses them in ways that even Guthier may not be able to explain. His composition is more forceful, his vision more compelling, his artistry more mature. Never before has human intimacy been so beautifully documented. And yes - most of the work is powerfully sexual - but categorizing it as "porn" would be like calling Sartre's Being and Nothingness, a light read. Norbert Guthier has reached new levels of artistic genius here.

This hardcover book of 152 pages printed is on high quality paper in black & white duotone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Masterpiece!!!, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: Premiere Nudes (Hardcover)
This book is masterpiece! It might even be one of the most important books on nude photography ever published - it's that good. First of all, it's a huge and scholarly look at the life and work of photographer Albert Arthur Allen. The first forty or so pages are all text describing the life and times of the photographer. The information is fascinating and will prove quite insightful to anyone interested in the 1920's and 1930's, especially from an artistic and photographic perspective. And then there are the pictures ... Wow! The hardcover book itself is 10x10 and contains 256 pages of absolutely beautiful, pure, pristine, nude-oriented erotica. Full frontal nudity in all its glory is what made Allen a marked man by many of the "morality police" as well as the legal authorities at the time. And it's what really sets him apart from most of his contemporaries like Imogene Cunningham and Edward Weston, who were considered genuine and legitimate members of San Francisco's art community.

Allen's work could certainly be seen as a reflection of the "high-flying spirit of the Roaring Twenties" and seemed to appeal less to the art collectors of the time than it did to gentlemen who in later times would be fancying Playboy and Penthouse. This is not meant to impugn the artistic merit of Allen's work at all, just the opposite. Allen was just a lot more daring than his peers and this generated an electrifying element of excitement to his photographs, something can still be felt to this day. Initially, a lot of his models were fellow naturists, but towards the end of the 20's he started to recruit more from newspaper advertisements, targeting women who had come to California to chase dreams of stardom. Allen's young women were "clearly crossing the line of acceptable behavior for a proper woman - and they new it." That's exactly what makes this work so exciting, so deliciously naughty. Do whatever you have to do to get your hands on this book - it will not disappoint.

Solange Ich Liebe
Solange Ich Liebe

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Nudes from 3 German Photographers, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: Solange Ich Liebe (Hardcover)
A superb collection of fine art photographs of celebrating the nude form in natural surroundings. All images are contributed by one of three photographers: Matthias Reuss, Wibke Reimann, and Rolas Simulis. Over eighty-four pages we are presented with a glorious feast for the eyes for this is truly a wonderful body of work. Natural beauty, lush and exciting settings, sacred femininity, and the sensuality of form are all powerful components. Masterfully printed and distributed in large hardcover this book is a delight for the eyes. The short texts are in German only but this in no way comprises the quality of this production for non German speakers.

Modern Amazons
Modern Amazons

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Photography - Inspiring Subject Matter!!!, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: Modern Amazons (Hardcover)
Modern Amazons is the highly anticipated follow-up to Bill Dobbin's first major publication devoted to the muscular female form - The Women. This new work, featuring the new women of bodybuilding, is sure to please Dobbins' devoted fans. Like its predecessor, Modern Amazons explores its beautiful subject matter with a level of respect bordering on awe, and the splendor, indeed the majesty of these women, is staggering. They are if anything, more impressive, their mass and muscularity more pronounced. And though Dobbins tinkers with a bit of cheesecake and glamour, his real strength is the more artistic approach where the beauty of the subject's body is the centerpiece of the portrait. These are the real gems, and there are enough of these in its 192 pages to make this a truly heroic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorman reaches new heights with this work, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: Stripped Naked (Hardcover)
This is New York photographer Peter Gorman's third book. Just as Naked Rooms was a radically different project from his first book, Naked In Apartment 7, this new work is another departure for him. But this time the results are more mature in their result and set Gorman on an even higher artistic plain. Gone are the highly stylized setups that characterized his first book, and the fluid, documentary style that distinguished his second book is no longer in force here. What we have is a more stable body of work from an artist who appears to possess a stronger sense of himself, and who harnesses a greater command of his craft. Gorman admits to shooting more "from the hip" these days, and all this work was shot in the unknown terrain of his female subjects' own homes, where the lighting conditions were completely unpredictable. But the results are extraordinary, and are laced with a sense of precision not see in his previous works. The lighting, the surroundings, the girls themselves, all flow into a unified and potent ensemble of pictures that are distinctly erotic. These are not just nude portraits of attractive and interesting women - much of this work is blatantly erotic and the subjects all strut their stuff with ostentatious and confident abandon. These are sexual beings that are obviously quite comfortable sharing this aspect of themselves with Gorman. As Reed Massengill notes in the forward - this book is about art .. but it's also about titillation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, Beautiful Erotica!!!, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: bodytransfer (Hardcover)
In this exquisite body of work Guthier treats the female nude not as a object of lust, but as subject imbued with it. Beautiful women, men, and couples are captured not as players in some forced plot, but as beautiful, interesting beings caught in a single, magnificent moment. Each image within is a beautiful landscape of human drama, masterfully shot with Guthier's Sinar P2 camera. The imagery is amazing! The entire book is filled with rich, haunting, highly erotic imagery.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than 300 black & white nudes, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: Erotic Journey (Paperback)
This is Charlie Roff's first book and it's a splendid foray into the publishing realm. With more than 300 black & white prints this is a colossal introduction to one of the great photographers of our time. Besides his use of women who are undeniably beautiful, the locations he uses serve as a surprising and interesting platform. We journey to from Cornwall to London, to Provence, to Paris, to New York, to Los Angeles, and finally end up on a deserted Greek isle. He works as well indoors as he does outdoors and the lush dramatic imagery is simply marvelous. And so are the girls!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding Scuba-Sex!!!, Dec 16 2008
This review is from: Underwater Love (Hardcover)
American photographer has made a career for himself in water. He's produced numerous videos of women underwater as well as a Sex Underwater series. Now, in this exciting book from Edition-Reuss, he lays out in print form the surreal beauty of erotica under the depths. Shot in the safety of swimming pools as well as the labyrinth of open waters, his unusual vision is spellbinding. to say the least. Naked water nymphs perform their erotic underwater ballets for us, and then there's the sexual material - wow! Couples engage in every sort of erotic entanglement imaginable and it's all vividly captured with Yasenchak's graphic, voyeuristc, scuba-style.
