I thoroughly enjoyed reading (viewing?) this work of art. There are very few words (a brief introduction and afterword) but it's the faces, expressions, body language, and photographic contexts which are ingested, translated, and deduced. I was captivated entirely. I give it four stars! And in the spirit of moderation (and not being a glutton) I absorbed it in 20-30 page blocks at a time.
I can presume why the book and its models were called "Stainless". The artistry concealed within is veritably without blemish. On more than one occasion I found myself transfixed by the gazes of the subjects. The models' attributable intensity. Their possessive stares. While I was holding the book, I also felt like "I" was being held up, so arresting some of the faces were. Several were softened while others austere. Nary did I uncover a single countenance which was snobbish or arrogant, however, in many wonderful instances, defiant was suitably appropriate. The woman on the cover is a prime example. Defiant yet beautifully and assuredly so. Don't you agree?
I'd like to add that reading the book wasn't just enjoyable but a little like a game too. You'll find yourself turning back the pages to previous chapters just to compare contours and expressions when you see a face you recognize but in new and different contexts. ("hey wait a second...isn't that the same...)
For those who believe all nudity is pornography I want to say that visual stimulation can be compartmentally separated from physical stimulation and arousal. And that personally speaking this work did not produce a feeling of arousal and lust so much as it produced one of pure and profound intimacy. ...more

I've never been into "plastic" per say, however, the imagery in this book is incredible. It's vivid, professionally well done, and makes you want to climb into the photograph. I put the book down just so I could pick it back up when I have a proper moment to dedicate to it. (And create a little anticipation). I hope that moment is soon :)...more
