Item description for My Nude (Photography) by Tom Jacobi...

View--the monthly general interest magazine from the publishers of Stern--recently held an online competition for the best nude photographs. The winning images, chosen by Internet users as well as the editors of View, constitute the crme de la crme of amateur erotica. They convey a freshness and candor rarely seen in so-called professional work. With approaches ranging from everyday openness to stylized scenarios, these works resonate with vigor and originality. We, the readers, can share in these dreams and illusions, gazing directly at others' deepest desires. With captivating insight, this remarkable document provides insight into our collective fantasy lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Nude (Photography)?

Mostly Forgettable  Feb 19, 2008
A little disappointing. There are some interesting photos but as was mentioned earlier in another user review the best is on the cover with a few others smattered throughout. Overall just "good" though, not great.
Disappointing...  Feb 11, 2008
I was disappointed with the images in this book; the cover image is by far the most interesting and the others just go downhill from here. I thought there was little creativity in the bulk of the poses or the technical composition of the final images. There ARE many photographic portrait masters out there and some EXCELLENT collections of artistic nudes; "My Nudes" simply fails to satisfy.
Beautiful Girls. More Artistic Than Erotic.  Feb 10, 2008
Overall I'd say the photos are very "tasteful" and more artistic than erotic. They are made up of unique atypical angles, poses, and compositions. Being that the photos are all from different artists there is a huge variation in style, which is nice - hardly any pictures look alike.

Some nit-picks I have are:
*The models' names aren't given on the photo page, However, you can get them from the back of the book.
* A couple photos are spread across 2 pages that split the model on the seam in a bad way visually. This is a pet peave of mine - don't split the main focal point on a seam!
Female figure, in wonderful ways  Jan 25, 2008
This collection represents the best of a magazine's photo contest: present the best photographic nude. "Best" means as many different things as there are photographers, models, and cameras - that constraint hardly narrows things down.

I found a few trends here, all of which I liked. One trend I'll call the "scuptural." As on the cover photo, it uses all the flexibility of a superb athlete to align the vectors of a body's parts in ways that bring something new to the viewer. Muller (p.16), Schulz (p.44), and Doring (p.77) all capture camera angle and human figure in ways that cast beauty at the viewer long before they offer structural logic. Others, including Garbe (p.101) and Koltgen (p.27), create utterly literal abstractions from the play of curve and light. My favorites, though are just fun. Seeing a lady simply happy in herself (pp.15, 23, 64) or offering her physical presence as a statement of boldness (pp. 51, 32) carries a spirit that I find lovely.

As happens so often, the figures are all except one or two slim, twenty-ish, and Anglo in feature and figure. Don't get me wrong, they're beautiful (or at least pretty). I just want to know where all the other ladies went - and, whatever color, age, and shape, who the woman is inside the figure. That's just me wishing the book was different than it is, though. What it is offers visions from dozens of artists in appealing, un-challenging ways to see the female figure. The little bit of tie-me-up fetish stuff is ignorable, the rest is glorious.

excellent figure studies  Nov 18, 2007
i own a fair number books that are collections of figure studies and use them for drawing projects since its difficult in a small town to find a model. this is one of the best due to the quality of the images and the variety of poses and models.
