Review quote

"Bunny Yeager's Darkroom from Rizzoli documents the photographer's dynamic career guided by the artist herself....In all Yeager's photos, you get a pure sense the fun and excitement. The scenes she created are always glamorous but also quite endearing-- sexy, fun and intriguing but with a sense of ease that makes them universally irresistible." "Coolhunting.com"."..drops you right behind the camera and features over 100 photos for you to drool over." "Coolmaterial.com""Legendary for her brilliance in capturing the essential sexuality of women, Yeager's models, including the equally famed Bettie Page, fill the pages..." "Sun Post"."..includes many images from the longtime Miami resident's personal archive, including iconic shots of the legendary Bettie Page and many previously unpublished images. And she hasn't stopped creating" "southflorida.com""Bunny Yeager's Darkroom is about master photographer and pioneer Bunny Yeager, but it also happens to be the best book ever published about Bettie Page and the best collection of original photographs ever seen of the model. If you are one of the millions interested in Bettie Page, buy this book." "Vintage Sleaze"."..a new collection of more than 250 photographs curated by author and cultural historian Petra Mason that includes iconic shots of Bettie Page, whom Yeager is credited with discovering, and many previously unpublished images including Yeager self-portraits." "Huffington Post""This book of classic pin-up photos is the ideal gift" "Baltimore City Paper"."...glimpse into the icons and outtakes of pin-up photography's golden era, including chapters on Yaeger's early self-portraits, classic American cheesecake and, of course, star subject Bettie Page." "National Post"."..utterly evocative of its time, and rather innocent.." " Palm Beach Post"show more
