People have always been fascinated by the beautiful, extremely well-trained, highly flexible bodies of female acrobats, dancers, and athletes. These lithe beauties can perform contortions and pretzel-like twists that would cripple an ordinary person. And they accomplish these exotic movements with playful ease and elegance. Performing difficult exercises in a naturally nude state offers unexpected erotic perspectives on the beauty of the female sex, which reveals itself here like a ripe and pouting fruit. Lombardo's photos convey a message of physical and sexual openness, perhaps even surrender. An excitingly different book. Colour and B&W.
