Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After bringing us Adonis, a beautiful collection of male nude photography, Michelle Olley returns with a companion book of images of the female form. The female nude has a long and fascinating history, from Boticelli's Venus to the covers of contemporary fashion magazines such as Vanity Fair and Marie Claire. Although the nude has been developed in many ways, it continually captivates the photographer and the viewer alike. Venus is a celebration and a history of the best of female nude photography, covering the entire spectrum of styles, techniques and fashions of erotic photography from fashion shoots to fetishism and beyond. This comprehensive collection features high-quality images taken by Herb Ritts, Bob Carlos Clarke, Wolfgang Tilmans, Sandra Jensen and Mario Testino and many others. Over 190 photographs in color, duotone and black and white are included.

Book News Annotation:

A lifestyles magazine editor introduces some 150 diverse b&w and color images of female nudes with a survey of erotic photography and thumbnail sketches of the 48 contemporary photographers represented (including several women). But like beauty, what is erotic is in the eye of the beholder.
