Eric Kroll is a photographer whose body of work documents a large segment of the world of erotic fixation. His women come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They dress in leather, vinyl, lace and almost anything else you might care to imagine. They use paraphernalia such as whips, ropes, clips, clamps, and things I cannot mention here. Some are submissive, some are dominant and almost every variation in between is also represented.
Many of Kroll's images are beautifully posed and thought out, combining sexual lushness with a fine aesthetic sense. Other photographs are almost purely documentary. The original edition "Fetish Girls," with 200 pages of images is a vast summary of Kroll's work at the time (1994) and reveals much of his interests, his skills and a curious sense of humor. The miniature edition offers less, but the editing choices are good. At my age, though I find the smaller images require a bit of squinting. Printing is better in the larger edition as well. Unfortunately it is currently out of print, but it is still readily available from resellers and used book dealers.
Both the photographer and the fetishist will find "Fetish Girls" of interest. As a photographer, Kroll has had a great deal of influence in the field of fetish photography in the thirty years he has worked. It is hard to find a photographer in this genre that hasn't been influence by Kroll, and few have his breadth or technical skills. As a fetishist, Kroll shows himself has having a wide range of interest and a sympathetic approach to many of the varieties of sexual experience. He is by no means an extremist, though, and avoids the violence and rough sex of some of his competitors. Perfectly normal people will also find much of interest in this landmark volume of erotic imagery.
A glorious tribute to his predecessors it may be, it is nonetheless a delicious exposé of the incredibly creative work that he himself has created over the years. Beautiful, succulent beauties are flaunted throughout, adorned in an endless variety of kinky clothing and erotic toys. And they are bound, they are knotted-up, they are bent over, spread-eagled, spanked, shaved, and suckled. They pose powerfully as dominators; innocuously as sexual furniture; and provocatively as they shove their crotches in our face.
Through it all, Eric Kroll's talent as a photographer and portraitist stands paramount. And we are left with what might be his finest publication to date and a book that is unquestionably a MUST HAVE for any serious collector.
eric kroll's a profational photographer and though he choose to deal with the issues of sex, fetish and control, the mages themselfs are done proffetionaly with much care to detales scenery and so on, which is very importent to me when creating an erotic scene. he's very versatile and i can't say even now after years of going through those photos what he's spasifcly into, it seems that he like just about anything and doesn't focuse on either one type of fantasy \ body part or certion type of model, however somthing about the lighting, styling and pose can still be recognised as his own personal style.
thechen's a quality art books publisher, so printing, design and binding are very good.
i've had this book for over 7 years and it's still interesting and stimulation to look at.
