Review

""They're the girl next door but more colorful and with better record collections."" —Spin

""Heavily-tattooed [Angelina Jolie] special ordered Hunky Valentine [Brad Pitt] the naughty coffee table book, 'SuicideGirls: Hard Girls, Soft Light,' a collection of more than 2,500 photos of young, tattooed, and nude pinups."" —National Enquirer 

About the Author

Combining her love of pin-up photography, music and art with personal ideals of female empowerment nurtured in DIY culture, Missy founded SuicideGirls as a place where a woman can be herself and where her confidence, creativity and uniqueness are what defines her. While it is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Missy found the camera lens of mainstream media a bit myopic for her taste. SuicideGirls began and has grown from a desire to expand mainstream culture's definition of what is beautiful, and to show that it can be realized in a more diverse range of women than those who grace the pages of most fashion magazines and movie posters. What started for Missy as personal expression has now become a revolution.
Raised in Portland, Oregon in what could be described as an eclectic and artistic environment, Missy combines her traditional fine arts training with new media business acumen in the operation of SuicideGirls. In addition, Missy continues to photograph women for the site. Her photography focuses on depicting how each model feels sexiest about themselves in the photos and has inspired a generation of young women to embrace their bodies and showcase their confidence.
Since launching SuicideGirls, Missy has become a voice for the culture outside of what mainstream media is reporting. She has been interviewed on issues relating to music, the Internet, pop culture and body image on numerous radio stations and in publications such as the New York Times, Wired, Spin and Elle. Recently featured as one of the top "12 Sexiest Jobs in Hollywood" and the "20 Sexiest Jobs on the Web", Missy has appeared on HBO, Fox News, the hit series "CSI: NY" on CBS, as well as the four SuicideGirls movies in constant rotation on Showtime.

First, from a product quality standpoint, this is well made with a good binding and high quality photos on high quality paper stock.

My one wish for the book would have been that it would have been organized more like the previous book Beauty Redefined. Hard Girls, Soft Light seems to skip from model to model too fast, mostly a single page at a time. I would have liked small 3-4 page sections featuring each model more.

Another poster commented that they wished that there would have been more models with tattoos and piercings. I think that this misses the entire point of SG. SG is about acknowledging a wide range of beauty that is outside the mainstream definition, whether it be through body modification or non-traditional body types or looks. By trying to pigeonhole the models represented into a certain look, you are actually going against the very thing that SG is trying to change. The point of the book is that the models are all different from both each other and the traditional standard (even if they don't have body mods). They all project a different image of beauty.

I already had the Beauty Redefined book and love it so was super excited about this one. The quality of the photos and artistry is still present but I was very disappointed that so few girls had any visible tattoos and/or piercings. I would say at least a quarter of the girls pictured didn't have any visible work. This is my only complaint, but since it is a Suicide Girls book I would have hoped for more visible work in the book. If you are looking for artsy pictures that show off truly beautiful girls and don't care so much about the tattoos/piercings this book will not disappoint. If you are looking for the tattoos and piercings they are still there, just not as much as in Beauty Redefined.

Format: Hardcover
These girls are posing strictly for each other. They are completely self-conscious, however sassy their looks may look and however brazen they may lock eyes with the camera. The special things they share -- perhaps the ink, the nudity, or the youthful spirit of rebellion -- appears to be about breaking conventions of high fashion, main-stream role models and nude photography of the female body. And the book does all that, breaks the conventions all right (not that they really need another assault). Much more interesting though is not what the images contest but what they create: a lovely covenant of girls who subscribe to alternative notions of female beauty, who love to show themselves after literally inscribing these notions of beauty onto their bodies, and who pose collectively, even if there is only one girl in a given picture. What gets me is that they are doing the pictures for themselves, and for each other, and that the book radiates so much warmth and empathy as a result. And, by inference, so much authenticity. It is something like a fable on what authentically feminine nude photography would look like, not because it is cheekier and sassier, but because the cheek and sass is shared -- with other cheeky, sassy chicks. If you want your girlfriend to look at female nudes with you and to like what she sees, this is the book you should get. The most innovative, sensuous and serene volume of nudes I have bought in years, and simultaneously the most tender and warmest one.

Buy the books. Check out the website. Follow them on Tumblr and FB. Missy has built an empire that thrives on bringing true beauty to the public, and not the cookie cutter boring stuff the media always tries to shove down our throats! Loved this one so much I bought the new one too. If you are a fan of beauty, great locations, and some amazing photography work, buy this. I will stack it up next to any coffee table book out there!

If you liked the past Suicide Girl Books, you will like this one. This is the third for me and it is right on par with the others. Title says it all.

I hope to get a woman with ink and piercings like no other. This book is better than any play boy or any hustler or penthouse whatever. I mean I kind of don't like how some are just pussy shots and I cant see some of the faces I would like a full view of the body. Hey it's art right...

Seem as good ,but not as good as some of the others, maybe there taking a rest, but a little more time and skin under panties would help to make the girls not so posied,and the panties would add some sex.
