The Mammoth Book Of Erotic Photography Reviews

    There are lots of wonderful photos in this book and I spent many nights poring over and enjoying them, but they offer a depressing sameness. Is a young, slim white woman the most beautiful thing in the world to photograph? Where are all the women of color, and why not photograph men, also? Why is this entitled "Illustrated Erotica" instead of, more fairly, "Slim White Maidens on Display"?True, there is some variation to the white-girl theme, but very little, and they're expected: plus-sized women bending toward the camera to plump their ample cleavage at you, men used as props or for contrast, and my least-favorite image, found on page 63 and shot by Gilles Berquet, of an Asian woman viciously bound and on the floor in the foreground of a high-contrast photo with a blotchy, disturbingly war-like background, like an awful Vietnam flashback. Why, Gilles?There are plenty of portraits of that perennial macho-het-guy favorite, two women together; but although men are shown sometimes singly (often in shadows or blurred) and more often as props for female models, they aren't shown together, and why not?This book is beautiful and does belong in an erotic collection, but unfortunately it seems we still need separate volumes -- and probably specialty publishers -- for those of us who appreciate the beauty of variety, color, and men, especially men together. I don't know how many human body types and erotic expressions are worthy of artistic admiration, but I'm certain there's more than one.
