Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In Hollywood, it seems, young and willing women stand on line to let Carlos Batts shoot photos of them in his idiosyncratic, eccentric manner. At his studio in Los Angeles, Batts transforms them into fetish divas and goddesses of lust. A few well-known porno performers also number among his models. The result is a multidimensional and unprecedented mosaic of crazily erotic photos. This is a book that every collector simply must have in his collection." —Screw Magazine

"Batts' pictures are enlivened by his unmistakable style. He meticulously stages his models' erotic auras. He's long since made a name for himself in the USA as an innovative newcomer. Stars of the fashion and music scene (for example, the rap musician Snoop Dog) book him for their shootings." —Photographie

"One can only stare in astonishment at the creativity and inventiveness of this American, who has settled in Hollywood." —Hersfelder Zeitung
