Richard Murrian is famous for his work with young, pretty, Hamiltonesque models. His previous two books were brilliant studies in youthful beauty captured with amazing, artistic flair. But in this third book, Baby Doll, he turns toward more familiar terrain - to his beautiful wife, Nancy Murrian. And it turns out that he could not have cast a more perfect subject. Nancy is absolutely radiant.
Anyone who has ever met Nancy could not fail to see that she was a beautiful woman. And charming too. But the magic that she and Richard create in Baby Doll transcends that, in an almost unbelievable way. More than that, their trust in and love for each other prompted their documenting material that is much more intimate and sexual than anything Richard has ever done before. Viewers will be held spellbound as Richard captures every inch of Nancy's tender, naked form and then moves into secret places that only a husband would know.
It took an enormous amount of trust to create this work; and an even greater sense of courage to publish it. Both Richard and Nancy should stand as an inspiration to artists the world over.
flawless exotic Jun 26, 2008
Richard Murrian's muse is perfection embodied. His model exudes the natural/erotic with such subtle power. Her skill at posing and Murrian's talent with his camera come together to compose an unbelievably beautiful portrait of an enchantingly sublime goddess. My only criticism, and it is a minor one, is that the images would have benefitted from being slightly larger. Other than that, the book is exceptional.
True love Jun 19, 2008
This is one of the hottest books I have seen in a long time. The love and affection the photographer has for his subject comes through loud and clear somehow making what would be just ordinary shots of a good looking nude woman into something truely special.
Good for fans and followers Feb 25, 2008
I have admired Richard's photography, but most of my opinion was drawn from excerpts, and what I'd seen and from his first book (which I own as well). This book was a lot more erotic and explicit than I was expecting. While not a prude, it is not nearly as mainstream artistic as I was expecting, and significantly more adult-oriented and liberal erotica than anticipated. The work is still well done with some stunningly beautiful shots, and he is clearly a very talented photographer. However, this small book might not be placed in the most accessible portion of the art nude shelf when Mom comes over.
Murrian's best so far Feb 17, 2008
This gorgeous book features just one model (except once or twice): Murrian's wife, Nancy. She has a native grace and beauty that come through in every picture, enhanced by Murrian's obvious affection for her. Most of these pictures are nudes, and certainly not for anyone shy about genital details. They range from charming honeymoon pictures of the teenage bride, through a wide range of elegant poses and generally romantic settings, apparently covering many of their ten years of marriage. Her erotic potential simmers behind every photograph, and boils over one set of photos early on, then again in the final set that celebrates the Murrians' intimacy together. Even those photos of Nancy and a startling sex toy manages to avoid hard-core vulgarity, at least to my eye.
It's a beautiful book, and a charming tribute to a woman that the photographer obviously loves.
