May 22, 2009"A work of genius!" Brilliant. This is an exceptional book that is obviously a labour of love by Mr. Segate. The photos have been lovingly reproduced in chronological order and feature the many projects that the author has worked on over a period of 10 years. Starting with his earlier B&W prints, it also includes some of his contact sheets, and progressing through his increasing use of graphic design, grunge backgrounds on to the later work which features an increasing use of digital manipulation. The themes of the work are mainly those featuring women in various states of nudity, but never gratuitously, and always with a style and a knowing wit. I can't recommend this book highly enough and look forward to the next.
Feb 7, 2009"Roberto Segate's beautiful coffee-table book." It's not often I'm compelled to write reviews like this, but I can honestly say that Robert's book is one of the most beautiful books I have had the pleasure of owning and I just had to say something. I'm a sucker for grungy gothic type erotica and this book does not dissapoint. It's jam packed full of his images spanning 10 years, the models are beautiful, the treatment of his images is spectacular - this book gets a 12 out of 10 from me!
Jul 20, 2008"What a find!" I was browsing Lulu when I found this book but chance really, and after looking at the prievew I was hooked and ordered one. I'm a dark art devotee (I'm an photographer myself) and was very pleasantly surprized when I saw the book. It shows eveything Roberto Segate has ever done. Some of the early images, although excellent and show Roberto's starting points, were not as dark as I usually like but, boy, was I in for a treat. 3/4 of the book is filled with menacingly dark (and very disturbing) 'erotic horror'. Beautiful in its grungy decay. The book itself is laid out well and designed to reflect the grungly nature of the work and it also included some stuff explaining his thoughts and processes and even some interviews on his Words and Bitches work which was reviewed in a UK photo mag (He took a bit of a beating apparently!!). Superb, beautiful, horrible, sexy.
Jul 3, 2008"Holly s**t - these are some photographs!!!!!!!!!" I had to say this, that the photography and digital imaging in this book is amazing. He takes beautiful models and transforms them into ghouls and monsters but in an erotic and very appealing way. I've been trying to do this sort of thing for quite a while and I can't come close. If you're a fan of beautiful girls, gothic horror and digital manipulation then this is for you.
Jul 11, 2007"A beautiful collection of beauty and horror" I think that about sums this book up; beauty and horror; thought provoking and unsettling; disturbing and engaging
