Book review: Naked Fashion Girls by Mike Dowson


Goliath Books is a publisher of art and photography books. Founded in 1997, and specializing in publishing daring photography and art books.

Mike Dowson, born and raised in Manchester / Great Britain, left home at sixteen and moved to Paris. He made snap shots there of everything that he saw and got to know many different photographers. Photography enabled Dowson to travel, to work for Vogue, Elle and Playboy, to become acquainted with pretty women and to also make a decent living in the process.


Goliath’s release Naked Fashion Girls is a small hardcover book. The book is 128 pages. The dimensions of the book are 6 x 1 x 9 inches.

Naked Fashion Girls features 120 photos by photographer Mike Dowson. After the contents page, there is a short introduction Beautifully sexy... which is presented in several languages (English, French, Dutch, Spanish, and Italian).



In the introduction, the Publisher mentions that Mike Dowson "used to take thoroughly staged pictures that were lit to perfection, until he shifted the focus to more spontaneous, snapshot-like compositions."  Dowson states that the secret to successful portait photography is communication. 



The backdrops are a combination of outdoor settings and interior room settings such as a hallways and living rooms. Dowson prefers a non sterile studio set. The lighting is mostly natural but there is some sign of flash (ringflash?) lighting in some of the images that were shot indoors. The models wear panties in some of the photos but are primarily nude throughout the book. 




Dowson used to take thouroughly planned out and staged images, bit now focuses on spontaneous, snapshot-like images. The fashion models in the book are stripped of heavy make-up (and clothing) and are presented in a more natural but still sexy manner.
