All the faces seem fresh and young, differing in all the details that give each woman her unique charm. The second photo, however, displays human variation at its most marvelous. Some petals unfold widely for the camera, others barely peep out from between the outer lips. Each fold, each opening, each shade of coloring presents a new way for the woman's uniqueness to express itself.
Other books, like Petals and Femalia, also praise this most varied and personal expression of women's intimate beauty. Seeing her face side by side with her genitalia, however, adds a whole new dimension to appreciating her loveliness. Ms Adams: Beautifully done!
However, the book is severely lacking in diversity. While there are some images of other groups, European-Americans are easily the most represented group. This fact probably stems (at least partly) from the fact that this group may have been convenient for the author/photographer, but it's important to know.
I've added this just in case someone is looking for something and hasn't considered that the title of the book is accurate:
It should be understood that these images are not what one would typically call "artistic." That is, they are simple portrait shots, both of the face and the genitalia. There is no intricate lighting, no illusion of movement, of depth, or of fluidity, and the images don't tell a story. They are, just as the title of the book implies, portraits.
