…  So, What possessed me to buy this volume, pray tell?

Well, the cover photo is pretty cool.

And, I was wondering …  What does it take for someone to make a $ 50.00 photo book anyway … ??

In short, I had to find out for myself.

There are like no real bookstores in Phoenix these days.  You kinda have to drive to the ‘burbs’ to find one.

So, to preview ‘Naked Happy Girls‘, I had to buy one.

Why, for instance, are the girls happy?

Naked Happy Girls‘ is full of playful girls, shot using Kodak 5063, Tri-X Pan Black and White film…  Published in 2003, this book is kinda before the digital SLR boom.

It is published by Goliath in their “amateur series.”  Rather fitting really, and still, here is a book…

Andrea, Happy Naked Girls, New York

Andrea, Met at "Burning Man" in 1999... an artist, loves pistachios, red wine ... fairy tattoo on thigh.

Andrew shoots his Tri-X with a run of the mill 35mm Nikon SLR.  Most shots seem running wide-angle to normal …  I would guess 35mm to 50mm lenses.  He really doesn’t say.

Shots are lit using what appears to be diffuse interior natural lighting.  Images are grainy.

They have a snap shot feel.

This is a book of nude women, whom Andrew introduces to us by sharing a paragraph by telling us how he knows or met her.  I guess this and another brief multilingual intro at the books beginnings are what Emma Jane Taylor’s author credits are for.   Say 60 or so cute paragraphs.  Less is more… N’est pas?

Then, after Emma Jane’s brief intros, Andrew will jump right into some several pages of these black and white shots of the lass to whom we were just introduced…. then onto the next lass…  Next !!Naked Happy Girls, New York, Rear Cover

The book is  8″ x 5.5″ x 1.5″ and 368 pages long.

Each page usually has 1-2 photos, with small white border.

Each lady has about 5-10 pages of photos devoted to her… with 7 pages of photos being seemingly the most common.

Doing the math on this rather quickly suggests Andrew has on the order of 50 happy playful girl friends he has added to this volume.

It is rather a fun book.  And sells new for over $50 … and retains used value fairly well (over $ 20) …  So, it seems rather a successful book.

The expressions on the ladies are generally those of ladies being playfully fun.  It’s like a shots of several one girl pajama party, mostly lacking PJ’s.

Not all the shots are nude.  Some of the pussy shots actually are of pussy cats.  These are of girls in their apartments after all.   These shots were taken in the late closing days of the 1900’s the opening days of the 2000’s:   thus, most of the pussy shots are somewhat with fur.   There are no real pussy shots… These are like shots of the girls goofing.  While some southern fur is in play, it is not the point of this book.

It’s a fun book.

Depending on your purposes, it’s money well spent.

It inspires …  Now, I’m gonna go off and publish a photo book one day my own self …  How about you?

Yay, Inspiration !!

Taken individuality, the photos are more snap shotty than art photos.  There are shots barely in focus.  This being sometimes generous.

The sheer volume of ladies and the adherence to the style is what makes them rather art like… That and Andrew, well Andrew pulled it off.   He’s got a cool book of a cool concept which sells.

At ta boy Andrew!
