Product Description

Review

“Supermodel and ‘Queen of Pose’ Rocha, dressed in a plain white leotard, collaborated with world-renowned photographer Sebring to produce 1,000 absolutely stunning black-and-white images.” (BookPage)

“Shot in glossy black and white and using a 360 degree camera, the dynamic images do more than inspire the fashion faithful, they provide an showcase for the beauty and versatility of the body.” (Models.com)

“A beautiful (and thick!) collection of black-and-white photos from “the Queen of Pose”, Coca Rocha, doing what she does best: masterfully contorting her body with elegance and grace.” (The Thread, Nordstrom)

“As you begin paging through Study of Pose you find yourself caught up in each picture’s story.” (Big Think)

I've photographed over a thousand models in over 40 countries.

This is not a study of pose. There is no discussion on lines and angles and form to guide a model or photographer or sculptor or any other person.

This is simply a book where the model moves through various poses and the photographer shoots and when they get to 1000 they stop. Many you would never use for fashion or even fine art.

The book's title would probably mislead people to think that this book is about the study of poses when in fact it is just a book of poses, 1,000 examples of extreme poses to be specific.

Coco Rocha, if you don't know, is a Canadian model. Together with photographer Steven Sebring, they have produced a book of 1,000 poses.

The premise is interesting enough for me to get it. 1,000 poses! They could be good for reference. But there's a big caveat.

Let's talk about the book's physical aspect first. It's a 2032-page hardcover about 7 by 9 inches. It's very thick and heavy. Edges of the pages are printed black.

Majority of the pages stick together. By the time I peel off the pages from each other, reaching about hundred over pages, I was quite tired, at two hundred pages, I was irritated, and at three hundred pages I was reflecting on the production value of this book. Yes, you'll have a lot of time to think about things while peeling the pages. Those people who say this is a good book may not have peeled more pages than me yet.

And because the pages are so thin, it's easy to crease them when peeling them apart.

Production quality of the book is quite bad. For the price of the book, it's very bad. I should also note that publisher Harper Design is known for publishing illustrated books such as the The Hobbit film companions, 532-page Harry Potter Page to Screen and 464-page The Art of Film Magic which are all quality production. It's quite shocking to see a book of this production quality from them.

The binding is also questionable. The book uses stitch binding, thank goodness. However, the piece of cloth that sticks to the stitched binding does not seem to use particularly strong adhesive.

This is an incredible collection of poses churned out by the inimitable model: Coco Rocha. The images are extremely basic and clean to help illustrate the poses - which range from mild to extreme. One could arguably 'see' what clothes could be worn for each pose and the intended effect to the viewer. Aspiring models, clothing designers, artists, photographers and pretty much any industry that requires an image of a human being to convey a visual message should have this book.

It will be a great reference resource for my future photographic concepts.
