Editorial Reviews

Review

"The view of contemporary female glamour and sexuality offered by Christine Kessler's work is more than just a collaboration - it's a 100-percent inside job, and all the better for it."

About the Author

Christine Kessler is a Los Angeles native and lives there today in her historic Craftsman bungalow that boasts a bright pink gourmet kitchen and one extremely cute dachshund. 

She's been firmly attached to the backside of a camera since the age of 15, moving from film to digital in the early part of this century. Her first collection, "Pervy Girls" was published by Goliath in 2007. Her work can be found in many books including Goliath's "My Favorite Model" and Taschen's "The New Erotic Photography", in numerous magazines internationally, in gallery exhibits, and on countless websites.  

Christine is particularly proud that a half dozen of her early black and white prints joined the Quran in illustrating Gordon Dietrich's "taste for the unconventional" in Warner Bros.' 2006 thriller, V for Vendetta.

Format: Hardcover
This extremely sexy book is another winner from photographer Christine Kessler, who knows not only how to find beautiful models but to show off their bodies in fun, creative poses that highlight them and their stockings. From girls with red fishnets between their teeth to gorgeous derrieres, flirtatious looks, pretty panties and more, these photos capture the beauty of a woman who's almost nude (and, yes, sometimes all the way), and looks all the better for her minimalist dressing. Of course fans of stockings, pantyhose, and fishnets will appreciate it, but anyone who likes playful, hot photos that you'll surely want to page through again and again will appreciate the hotness of Nylon Girls.

hotographer Christine Kessler should need no introduction to Fetishistas fans -- though if she does, our recent Darenzia portfolio is not a bad place to start.

Steen (as she's known) is one of the fetish genre's most admired 'togs, a woman whose websites (My Fetish Diary etc) and other books provide constant evidence of her reliable instincts when it comes to making fetish pin-up images both cute and raunchy.

The rapport she establishes with her models means that she often gets pictures that would be more difficult for male photographers to tease out of the same girls -- pictures that often look more like intimate collaborations than mere voyeuristic opportunism.

Nylon Girls focuses, as the title suggests, on legwear (with some lingerie thrown in for good measure), and anyone familiar with Kessler's Toe And Arch website will realise that she's eminently qualified to cover this subject.

The book itself is one of Goliath's pocket-size, A5-format Portfolio offerings. With around 100 pages of colour pictures sandwiched between padded hard covers, this series offers a touch of inexpensive luxury (typically around £10 from Amazon) that makes for perfect gifts.

Pretty much all types of women's hosiery are represented in Nylon Girls, which more or less ensures that for every viewer, some pictures are going to be right on the money -- even if, given the often rather specific nature of fetishes, not all may be.

Just in the first few pages there are popsocks, thigh-length socks, faux-vintage nylons, black fishnet stockings, kneesocks with sock-suspenders, fancy fishnet tights, white lace-topped fishnets, green fishnets, white cherry-patterned stockings, nude vintage seamed nylons... you get the picture.

This book is a great book of photographs of women wearing different types of nylons. The photos are really well done and all the elements of each photo are carefully considered. Not every woman is a remarkable beauty, but every photo wonderful. I liked seeing all the different types of nylons and enjoyed sharing the book with my wife. It is well done and sold at a reasonable price.

Well, the first thing you will notice is that this is a small book. The second thing you will notice is that the girl on the cover is nowhere to be found in the book (boo). Almost half of the pictures are of the former nude model-turned evangelical christian Erica Campbell. Although she is stunning, these "photos" are all taken from the internet and are at least 6 years old. This book is sure to disappoint. Save you cash and do a google search for Girls in Nylons (turn off safe-search)

Format: Hardcover
I danced around my mailbox waiting for my copy of "Nylon Girls" by the amazing Christine Kessler to arrive. As an amateur and aspiring photog myself, Christine is definitely one of the amazing ladies on the fetish photography scene that I watch carefully. Her images are generally always inspiring, beautifully crafted, technically superior. So when "Nylon Girls" arrived, I was decidedly letdown.

First off, this book is small. You cannot truly appreciate the work of a master photog such as Ms. Kessler by viewing her work in a 5x7 format. However, I suppose that is what I get for not paying much attention to the books specs, hmm?

However, ultimately the fate of a photography book rests on its content and the technical abilities of the photographer. While Ms. Kessler's abilities are perfectly sound, I was again letdown by the collection of images chosen for the anthology. Christine's work in the fetish/erotic fashion industry reaches so far beyond these simple images of beautiful ladies (Miss Mosh, Apnea, Ulorin Vex, etc.) in nylons (and not much else).

If I was a fetishist simply searching for photographs of exquisitely attractive, modern vixens in pantyhose, then "Nylon Girls" might be my new drug. Unfortunately, I am a young female photographer in search of inspiration. "Nylon Girls" fell decidedly flat in this aspect, and left me wondering why someone so talented as Christine would even bother to publish what amounts to a forgettable piece of fetish fluff? Save your money and sneak a peak at her website or various online profiles: you'll get a much better 'bang' for no buck!

I'd give this maybe a grade of C+. The book was much smaller in size than I had hoped for in an erotic photography book.
The photos are well done however strictly a personal preference in this book would be a larger abundance of shots of the models without shoes so the female foot clad on nylon could be spotlighted more. If you were looking for this specific element of the nylon clad female foot to add to your collection I would pass on this book.
Hope this helps others decide to purchase or pass on this book.
