Editorial Reviews

About the Author

BurningAngel is an independent website that celebrates the intersection of sex and rock n' roll, offering punk-inspired erotic photos and hardcore videos alongside album reviews and revealing interviews with indie, punk and hardcore bands.<br /><br />The Lovely Brenda (Brenda Staudenmaier) is a New York City-based photographer. Originally from Peshtigo, Wisconsin, Brenda at the age of 22 left her small-town American life for the action and excitement of New York, where she could actively pursue her passion: photography. Her work is acclaimed for her ability to beautify the raw, brutal and authentic aspects of her subjects. Brenda's photography mirrors her vibrant, vivacious and playful demeanor, trading the industry's white backdrops for the colorful, organic set design of New York City.

Suds, stockings, panties, roller skates, a bra tug or war, and some of your favorite porn stars like Joanna Angel and Dana Dearmond are just some of the delights that await you in much-admired photographer Brenda Staudenmaier's debut book. While most of the models have the trademarke Buring Angel punk tattoo look, some complete with a snarl, there are also some very cute, but still sexy, shots - fellating a curling iron, licking a happy face lollipop, baring everything against a graffiti-covered wall or on a rooftop with New York City as the backdrop.

The range of photos and types of models is remarkable, and while they certainly have things in common, Staudenmaier seeks out each girl's special charm, whether a look or a body part or a pose or setting. These photos are vibrant, daring, bold and sexy, without ever resorting to clichés. There are girls with guns and girls in latex. There are lots of very cute pairs of underwear. I'm partial to one stunning redhead and many of the two-girl sets. All of these photos, taken for the site Burning Angel, are very direct; though posed, they have a candidness about them that lets the models' beauty, as well as their quirks, shine through. My favorites here are ones I call the "whoops" photos, ones where the girls are looking at the camera like, "Whoops, I forgot I had my clothes off. Silly me!" There's something slyly sexy about those shots, like Barely Legal girls gone wild in a way Joe Francis would never condone. They're wild because they allow themselves to be, and so does Staudenmaier.

An improbably thick collection of lush, stunning images by powerhouse photographer Brenda Staudenmaier (The Lovely Brenda).

The compilation covers several years of her punk pin-ups for Williamsburg legend Joanna Angel, charting each girl over time within a seminal subculture. The book is a fully-realized art object: hefty & appealing, with beautiful prints of impeccable photographs & colorfully patterned endpapers. I bought one just to keep pristine in plastic.

This book is definitely great. I am a huge punk, rock and roll fan and the photographs of these girls are beautiful. I was very impressed when I got it in the mail from amazon, I assumed it would be bigger and with a dust cover, but it was a nice beautiful portable durable hardcover book shrink wrapped so when you open it, its in mint perfect brand new condition, and no annoying dust cover, just a good quality book.

This is a must have for all punk rock type girl fans. The pictures are very beautiful in good quality. There are so many different themes of girls outside, girls inside, girls with guns, almost every girl has a tattoo or a whole body full of them and are very interesting to look at the tattoos and their style, girl on girl kissing and stuff, girls in latex, girls holding goldfish, but "The Lovely Brenda" the photographer, does an amazing job of mixing the color of the girls clothes and body with the surrounding background so it matches perfectly. 90% of the girls in the book were beyond beautiful, and of course everyone has their own tastes but there were a few girls I was like, blah bad picture and unattractive girl, but I love the book and recommend it definitely.

On a last note, PLEASE do not buy this for your 13 year old son. This is not a book of just models like you'd see in teen magazines, these girls are naked. Breasts, and other female parts are completely visible and pointed out! Keep in mind its for adults, and shouldn't be kept where kids can get it or they're gonna start asking questions they are too young to ask!

Very well done. A small volume, but well worth the price. Certainly has a place in any collection of contemporary erotic art.
