The wild world of men's adventure magazines is made real in this provocative collection of real-life pin-ups Loaded with great photos of models clad in costumes ranging from cops and commissars to Indian maidens, sci-fi starlets and amorous army officers. Featuring fetish models like Morrigan Hel and shot by former Propaganda editor Berger, these pictures will appeal to everyone from vintage sweat magazine fans to cosplay enthusiasts.
A fierce troupe of impossibly beautiful models push the boundaries of a pulp-inspired vision with radical intensity and determination. These photos evoke risqu and violent comic book visions and the fetishistic imagery of the pulps mimic their illustrated scenarios. Bergers beautifully stylized and highly conceptual photographic short-stories are his personal homage to the pulp comics of his youth, and a powerful testament to his unique and uncompromising artistic vision. The various protagonists, adorned in a mixture of authentic and improvised outfits, accessories and weaponry epitomize a Counterculture Vogue.
