- Full Description
Here is Robert Alvarado's second collection of pin-up photography, more explicit, with full nudity. It relies on the subtlest of costuming, which goes a long way to add color, texture, humor, and homage to his images. These are explicit, with some featuring shaved or carefully groomed private parts. We like the creativity here, with everything from World War II uniform fantasies (the servicemen would have fallen over seeing THESE ladies) to cowgirls, bikers, Bettie Page types, sailor girls, and a fair number of tattooed ladies.
Alvarado uses this collection to focus more on the female form. As with all of his photography, Alvarado uses innovative techniques in these 145+ pin-up nudes to blur the line that distinguishes a photograph from an illustration. With these techniques, his nod to Alberto Vargas, Gil Elvgren, and other pioneering pin-up artists is clear.
But the themes, models, and styling in these alluring and luscious images are also steeped in today's popular culture. From the heavily inked and stilettoed to the sexy Storm Trooper and the traditional innocence of the girl next door, Alvarado's images show the breadth of his creativity and the beauty of his models.
