Russell James, ANGELS
Unlike James' last book, V2, Angels is less focused on the settings and backgrounds and more about the models. There's a wide number of subjects here; almost all are some of the biggest names in Victoria's Secret, plus singer Rihanna. The photographs have a diverse feel to them, whether narrowing in closely on one body part, or celebrating the look one a model's face, or even bringing in the background of reflective glass or an exotic lake. And the pictures are both single-and two-page works.
Angels is a hefty and wonderful collection of beautiful photography of beautiful women. For those who enjoy the visual celebration of the female form, this is a worthy addition to your library, and certainly worth having on display on the proverbial coffee table.
