Goliath: Burning Angel

Goliath Burning Angel BookYou know I have to like the Burning Angel book from Goliath because it opens with pictures of my personal fave Azrael. It technically opens with an introduction by Joanna Angel, which is translated into a bunch of different languages, but the English version is kind of a paint-by-numbers of what all altporn sites seem to feel like they have to say and didn’t really provide as much insight into the images as I would have liked. Joanna Angel looks cute on the cover though and smashingly glamorous in a series inside with jewels all along her cheekbone. In other notable makeup, Stellar has this white or silver eyelashes which make her look even more strikingly beautiful than she already does. There are some really nice photographs of Angela Ryan against just a simple purple wall, but with a glowing overhead light. Jade Jolie looks plush and sexy in amongst her plush stuffed animal toys. I think my favorite picture in the book’s generous 365 pages is one of Rubella, with her striped hair, holding a striped coffee cup bigger than her head. Bella Vendetta makes a standout appearance both in front of painted walls and outside on the sidewalk. Mayhem appears naked on the street next to a vigilante van which has good intentions and bad spelling (the van has bad spelling, not Mayhem, just to be clear). In general, Brenda Staudenmaier aka The Lovely Brenda does really interesting things with backgrounds, with a lot of the shoots being outdoors in New York City, against spray paint, streets, and sidewalks. I wish the book had larger pages, rather than being only 5.5″ x 7.5″ in size, so I could see more detail in the more complex outside work. I’d say it could have had fewer pages and had the pages be full size, but I really enjoyed being able to see a few print resolution images of each girl and not just one. Oddly, the photographer is credited on the cover as only “lovely Brenda” and some places list Joanna Angel as the author, although the book just has her as the intro author and lovely cover model. So, anyway, I am not sure who edited the book, but it is a nice selection sort from the work on BurningAngel, so kudos to whoever did it.

Mixing sexiness with attitude these Alterna-Babes will rock and seduce you! Burning Angel, the cult community for all real naughty rock chicks, formed by the legendary Princess of Punk Rock Porn Joanna Angel, is the place to be on the internet, if you want to run with the rebels. This super cool and super thick photo collection presents not only a best-of the hottest girls of Burning Angel, but also introduces the exciting work of New York photographer Brenda Staudenmaier, better known as Burning Angel‘s The Lovely Brenda. Her lens fearlessly captures the vibrant naked beauty of young, hot, glammed-up punkrock girls using the organic “set design” of brick walls, grungy rooftops, subway platforms, fluorescent-lit lounges, untidy bed sheets and lots of graffiti as authentic backgrounds for the new urban sub-cultural lifestyle. Never mind the good girls, here’s Burning Angel!
