Poinsard: Tropical Blend Dec 30, 2007
I was impressed with the high quality of the photos and the design of the book. The photos on odd and even pages have a matching color or shape that is pleasing to the eye and creates a thread for the eye to follow. The photographs of the female body are tasteful and beautiful.
...one of the best..!! Oct 20, 2007
After browsing his homepage, I started to look for his book in book store and finally got it. As same from the title, Tropical Blend, so pics inside this book has trees, forest, or beach..really tropical!!. So, now I put his book on my bed side table, which I can flip it after work or beside rest. This is one of the best on my collection..!! Don't miss it..!!
Excellent book, excellent photographer! Jan 18, 2007
Bruno Poinsard might not be a name on the forefront of the nude photographer world yet, but if this book is any indication of what's to come you can bet that he's going to be.
Starting from the great cover shot and continuing through almost every page inside, this collection shows off perfect shots one right after another like a machine gun. This work is clearly heavily fashion influenced and is very contemporary: this work is typical in the sense that you can see pictures like these in many top-end fashion rags, but here you have the added bonus of nudity. That typicalness is the one short coming in this collection, but there are indications that this guy is making his own mark on the subject and if that aspect grows he could be the next Andreas Bitesnich. This is an excellent book, extremely well laid-out, the quality of the paper and the printing are excellent, the size is big and bold (nice!), and the book feels like quality. I'd have liked to see more pages. But 140 isn't too bad.
So great photography, great production quality, and let's mention the subjects. His choices in models are excellent. All these beautiful, youthful fashion girls with waif-like bodies. Very nice.
So why the 4 Stars and not 5? As I mentioned the work is typical of it's genre. There are a lot of photographers whose work is also excellent and also looks a lot like this. That said, Poinsard clearly has >>something<< that is "him" and I'd like to see him define that further in his next book. Also the price could be a bit lower considering there are just 140 pages in this book. Not highly overpriced, but a bit too expensive for this size. Those two factors are enough to take away one star.
But this is still a great book and well worth having. You won't regret this purchase if you like trendy-sexy-cool photography of beautiful girls.
Lovely artistic shots, many surprises Apr 19, 2006
TROPICAL BLEND is a recommended pick for any college-level art library holding: each page is packed with color photos of women in tropical environments and varying stages of undress - each balanced against beautiful ocean and background settings for added impact. These are outstanding shots - close-ups, unique angles and artistic presentations filled with unexpected moments: the artistry and color surprises and delights here.
