"."..a sumptuous, large-format monograph worthy of every photographer's library." "Rangefinder.com
""It's a striking collection of images that is simultaneously high-art and vaguely erotic; at once nostalgic for the libertine feel of the 1980s and 1990s---and also entirely timeless." " Daily Beast
""Sexy yet tasteful, exotic yet intimate, the 150 images reveal the French-born, Australian-bred photographer's unique, unerring eye for beauty." "Details Magazine
""Mr. Piel's subjects, the likes of Uma Thurman, Andie MacDowell, Tatjana Patitz and Christy Turlington, convey an almost tactile sensuality as different from the hyperglazed mood so prevalent today as a shrink-wrapped apple is from one on a tree. To pore over those images is to discover an aesthetic that seems new and quietly animated, a compelling alternative to the often robotic look of the moment. Unlike...other current fashion darlings, who deliberately render their subjects remote, Mr. Piel's images, while posed, seem intimate, the models' flesh, with its visible goose bumps, stray hairs or film of sweat, almost palpable. He retouches sparingly, a point of pride, and likes to peek behind his subjects' lacquered facades." "The New York Times"
