Taschen's "The New Erotic Photography"


Taschen has finally gotten the release info for the book up on their site.

I'm very happy with the fact that it's hardback, 10.5" x 7.5" and is $50.00 - a perfectly respectable coffee-table book.

The talent represented in the book also blows me away - 82 photographers total. And names that pretty much own "erotic photography" today, plus a bunch of us up-and-comers. It's humbling and exhilarating to be included among such company.

February 2007 release.

"As you browse the photographs they discuss inspiration, censorship, how to find models, and how to make a living capturing beautiful women on film and in pixels."

So, is "erotic" the industry code for "photos only of women"? Is it not possible to take "erotic" photos of men?

I totally agree that the press release is a bit, uhhh, one-sided.

But it is Eric Kroll...and he likes women...

Well, I like women, too. I just vastly prefer talking to them over ogling their nakedidity. But I may be biased.

It's like, on the one hand, they're trying to say, "This is art, not porn! Art! Art!" but on the other hand they're all, "Heh, heh, we all know it's really porn, don't we, boys?" Like, dude, try to stay on message.
