Later stuff just has a harder edge to it that doesn't appeal to me. Maybe it's because I came of age in the 70's. I rather like some of the silliness, and the overall artistic look of the 50's photos too.
What do you think? Do you have a preference for a certain time/style?
I think the 'hard' texture of modern erotica at the lowest common denominator is down to pure laziness: everything is floodlit just because it makes setting up a picture simpler, and as for staging and character - why bother?
There's a big rockabilly/bombshell/retro movement going around, but even that doesn't seem to have the fun or the romance of days past.
If you ever get a chance to see "The Notorious Bettie Page," it's wonderful in the way it mimics the photographic style of the pinups.
