"Viva Van Story is an accomplished photographer who is being justly acclaimed as a worthy successor to Bunny Yeager. Van Story is taking the parameters of “cheesecake” to new levels and the result (to say the least) is haute-cuisine. Pretty damn hot haute-cuisine, actually!"  —Real Detroit Weekly

"VVS's photos are graced by the kind of drag strip dames and juice joint jezebels who populated the men's mags of the 1950s—with a decidedly modern edge. It's no surprise, then, that with NYC's vibrant burlesque scene, she's the photographer of choice for a wide range of tassel-twirling temptresses, hot-rod honeys, and tommy gun tarts."  —Eroszine

Ein wirklich geniales Buch und ich warte schon sehnsüchtig auf Teil 2 der dieses Jahr folgen soll. Viva versteht es klassische Pinup Fotografie in die Moderne Zeit zu holen. Einzige Mankos sind vielleicht der wirklich dünne Einband auf Hochglanz, an dem man a) jeden Fettfinger sehen kann, b) hätte Sie eventuell für andere ambitionierte Fotografen noch die Exif-Daten der Fotos mit abdrucken lassen können, denn bei den meisten Bildern die man auch online findet(z.B. auf Deviantart) sind die Exifdaten enthalten und c) war bei meinem Exemplar das ich zum Geburtstag erhalten habe unten rechts schon recht starke Abnutzung durch irgendeinen Aufkleber oder was auch immer. Sieht aus wie zwei Knöpfe mit einer Linie(hoffe da war kein kleines Special dran, was mir nun fehlt)erkennbar. Amazon sollte auch bei der Option "als Geschenk verpacken" darauf achten die Preisschilder abzumachen. Eher unratsam und zerstört die Romantik eines Geschenks. Trotzdem ein wirklich Tolles Fotobuch.

This book should come with a warning label! <3 23. Mai 2011
Von LovelyRachel8 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If you are looking for a pinup book that contains the same boring backdrops and themes, this is NOT the book for you. Viva van Story creates a story with every image she captures, and these stories aren't always light and cheery. However, this is what makes her art have so much more depth than the cookie-cutter photogs out there just trying to make a buck. After purchasing this masterpiece full of beauty and erotica, I knew I had to shoot with her and shoot with her I did! My fourth time shooting with her was less than two weeks ago. She is so passionate about her work and it is evident in this book, as well as the stunning images her and I have created. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an open-mind and a great imagination. Be prepared to go on a journey but be warned, you may fall in love with Viva just like I did. ; )

The Lighter Side of Fetish + Darker Overtones 11. Oktober 2010
Von R. Rosener - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Viva Van Story follows in the great tradition of female pin up photographers: Bunny Yeager, and Paula Klaw. Most of the racier and more memorable photographs of Betty Page are wrongly attributed to Photographer Irving Klaw. Few know that the studio was run with his sister Paula, and that she took many of the bondage shots of Betty, as well as did her hair, make up, and poses.

So now we have Viva following in Paula's fishet footsteps with a bevy of gorgeous models in fetishistic poses. To be honest, many of the latter Fetish photographers leave me cold. Their work is too polished and commercialized; I cut my teeth on the Betty Page photos as a boy. Back in the late '60s and early '70's my father kept a stash of old magazines and photos...late some nights he would get these out and "read" the articles. One night as a 6 or 7 year old boy I woke up and there was Dad, looking at photos of a Gorgeous Brunette in some distress. I stood staring for a while in the doorway. He knew I was there, and should be asleep. "Come in here". He said. "You should be asleep now" He scolded. "But I'll let you look at these if you promise not to tell your mother." I agreed, and have been hooked on Fetishistic photos of lovely women ever since....

Later in college I discovered Helmut Newton, and then Eric Kroll. They were and are interesting photographers in that the Fetish was only part of the image. They somehow hinted at something much deeper and more strange. The strangeness derives from the concept that Sexual Fetishes may not be so uncommon after all! In fact they may be lurking in all sorts of nooks and crannies in images seen on Television, Advertising, Home Magazines etc. Viva follows in this mold and adds her own style to it. Look for the black and white images on Televsion in her photographs. Often the women seem to be in reaction not to some unseen Paramour, but to the fantasies brought to life on motel TV screens.

Viva's models are beautiful without being barbie dolls. They have more curves than the Photoshopped Victoria's Secret women. I'd like to think she does very minimal if any retouching on them. Her sets are amazing! I don't know where she gets all these props. They exquisitely recreate the glossy "Crime" and "Adventure" pulp magazines of the 50's and early 60's. She creates an entire movie set in a single frame. This is no easy feat! Yet some of my favorite photographs in the book are done outside the studio or with minimal sets; The Blurry Bondage chair shot in Black and White on Page 150, The bathtub closeups on pages 156 and 157 as well as the final color plate on P.171 seem to hint at a night of role playing which took a bad turn....

But I equally enjoyed the minimal, surrealistic black and white compositions on pages 163, 164, and 165. These are worthy of Helmut Newton's Hasselblad! But don't worry about this book being too polluted with high art aspirations. Viva's girls are solidly in the delicious Low Brow Motel of Outsider Art. There is plenty of Nekkid Alabaster Female Flesh, squeezed, stretched, corseted and cleaved any way you can imagine. If you're a female derriere fan this is a fun ride for sure! If you were disappointed by recent Fetish photography books like "Studio 666" Viva's Girls will delight and sustain your scopophilia without leaving you empty. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that I would like to have read a bit more about the Mysterious Viva Van Story in her own words...whether it was truthful or apocryphal.

When i came across this book a year or so ago I just had to buy it. I became an instant Viva Van Story fan. If you like pinup and alternative models you'll probably enjoy this book. This book also was my first glimpse of the model Miss Mosh, who I now absolutely love, she is one of my favorite pinup/fetish models. Also suggest her new book Viva Van Story's Sheer
The Pinup Reinvented 3. Januar 2012
Von Lowtown Bob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Viva's Pinups" contains the very best of pinup photography from the most innovative photographer around, whose work is both a continuation and reinvention of the classic pinup tradition. Sure, there are the enduring retro references: The attention to period detail, the rich colouring, and the atmospheric lighting that evoke moods that extend beyond the photographed moment. But there's something more; an edge and tension that distances the images from being merely exercises in nostalgia and gives them an eroticism that is wholly contemporary, challenging, and liberating at the same time. And no one could mistake models like Mosh or Angela Ryan for being anything other than the strong, modern women they are. These are photographs that remind us that Life has the capacity to excite and expand beyond its normal bounds, and can be taken wherever we want it to go! So, if you're up for the trip, this book can't be recommended enough. And look out for the follow up collection this Spring, entitled "Sheer", which promises further explorations in erotic possibility by this groundbreaking photographer.
