The Taschen The New Erotic Photography Vol. 2 written by Dian Hanson. Following on the heels of our highly popular The New Erotic Photography, this second installment features entirely new photographs by 50 of the world's most intriguing talents. Of the included photographers, 35 are new to this edition; these new photographers, including Eric Bonzi, Cyril Torrent, Jo Schwab, Yossi Loloi, Tomohide Ikeya, Frederic Fontenoy, Andrew Pashis, Jan Hronsky, and Chase Lisbon are drawn from Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Japan, France, Russia, the Czech Republic, and the U.S., respectively, making this a solidly international title. There are also several outstanding women introduced in this edition, including erotic film star Kimberly Kane, Colombian expat Alejandra Guerrero, skate-boarder and heavy metal rocker Magdalena Wosinska, self-portraitist Erica Simone, and our own favorite cougar, Liz Earls.
The images in The New Erotic Photography 2 document the changing photographic media as much as the evolution of erotic photography since the previous book was published. Over half the photographers now use digital exclusively, and those who do use film are likely to use Polaroid, or primitive cameras like the Lomo and Holga, experimenting with film for its special effects rather than using it as an every day medium.
