The pretty girl on the cover intices you. the title may intice you. herge is a good photographer and you might know his other works and that entices you. so you want to buy the book. but don't.
most of the shots are really mediocre. sorry herge. I loved the book Luba, but this one is far from it. some of the shots don't even have red eye reduction or removal. the poses aren't very creative. as pretty as the girl is a lot of the shots just make her seem terribly ordinary. I was bored to death with this book.
I was done with it in less than 2 minutes. and when i picked it up again to make sure i didn't miss anything or was in a bad mood or something, it took even less time the second time around.
if you really feel you need this book, take mine. perfect condition, held for less than 5 minutes. you are sure to be disappointed...

Katya Mitina is a beautiful nude model that Petter Hegre was introduced to through fellow photographer and onetime friend Grigori Galitsin. He became so obsessed with her, he had her temporarily move from her home in the Ukraine to his flat, where he proceeded to photograph her over the next couple of months. This book is the product of that "experiment".
I came very close to buying this book, when Hegre announced it was in production on his website. To date, it's the only nude erotica book I have ever come close to buying. Then, he chose the title for it. Given the prevailing attitudes in the United States, I decided that, no matter how much I loved the beauty of this model, I simply could not have a book in my library with a title that suggested underage pornography. Katya, for the record, was over 18 when she was photographed for this book.
I found out later, through an Internet forum, that Hegre had a falling out with Galitsin. Grigori, or someone claiming to be Grig, posted on the forum that Petter allegedly cheated Katya out of some or all of her modeling fee, as well as any share of profits on the book. She returned to Ukraine broke, and subsequently got married, had a child, and quit modeling. If any of this story is true, shame on you, Petter.
Of course, dear reader, you should take my anecdote above with a grain of salt. I have no proof that the poster who made these accusations was in fact Grigori Galitsin, other than that I read the posts, and most or all of the members of the forum at the time believed the poster to be genuine.Read more ›
