Art, Erotica, Photography - Quantity: 1 - Book

Didier Carré is a former assistant to the official photographer of the French National Opera in Paris. He is a professional photographer whose books include Come Closer, High Voltage Erotica, Sexy Games, and Stainless Ladies. The passion of Didier Carré for photographing women led him to focus on his models at the very center of his research. They are proud to show aspects of themselves not seen anywhere else, and after visiting his galleries, the perception of so-called "cover-girls" will be changed forever.

"Nearly 10 years have passed since Stainless Ladies, my first volume of photographs, came out, and it’s been about 30 years since I took my first photographs, in black and white, back in 1983. This time, my fourth volume contains results that are more realistic and less dream-like; closer to a rougher, ruder reality. My models are indecent and cheeky all at the same time; they possess the same subtle but captivating blend of fragility and strength. They give nothing away: is it their sex you want to see? No problem, you will! As the observer, you will not be able to resist getting involved. At first, their total lack of shame shocks you, but then puts an irresistible spell on you. And although we know that this is a game of image and illusion, you may want to hate them, but they remain out of reach. In this game, the roles of hunter and prey have been reversed, which is the unsettling part, right? When you get to the end and wake up in the last few pages, you’ll be wondering whether it was all only a dream, or perhaps even a kind of nightmare. If the next thing you hear is a gentle giggling, it must be the girls, who can take off their panties so quickly no camera is able to spot them! And so, now we take our leave of you, I and my accomplices, great experts as we are in the art of sweet torment." — Didier Carré
