In the preface, he states he met twins, and just knew he would marry one of them. This book is a tribute to his wife, who is very beautiful. I would assume she is petite and is clearly slender but not skinny. These are exquisite photographs, using light and shadow and are indoors and outdoors. Luba is a very beautiful young woman, and perhaps the facial shots are the best. While there are no page numbers, the close ups of her face on page 21 and 22 are stunning, and just of her eye area (page 49) is wonderful for the detail. The pictures are a loving tribute and range from dress to complete undress, so there is something for everyone. There are a number of pictures with her twin sister. There is a great variety in the size of the different photographs. A closer examination of the photographs shows an attention to shadow, composition and angle that set this book apart from some others. The book is a joy. However, if one wants a book that covers many beautiful and nude women this book has only one woman. Perhaps the book would have been enhanced with a few less photographs at a slightly lower price but why quibble.

Having seen Hegre's two books/two wives, I wonder if he has any more books in him. It just seems too easy; marry someone attractive, take intimate photos, don't edit too tightly, publish, and move on to the next wife/book. Come on.
I think he could really edit down; the quality seems to be secondary to being more and more explicit. There is no subtlety here, or thought (see Helmut Newton).
I bought his first book, "My Wife", and then just looked at "Luba", just more of the same. Show some range.

Petter is a gifted and insightful photographer. Luba is not only a portafolio of his photography but a personal view of his gorgeous wife and sister.
This book offers a tremendous range of his abilities with the camera and the quality of beauty he strives for. If Luba is a small representation of this artist's craft, I can't wait for a new publication.
Petter has inspired me to pursue a similar carrer and profession. The book was a bit pricy, but the imagery was well worth it.
Well done Petter. I hope to meet you sometime and learn from you!!
