Description

- Second monograph by one of the world's leading female erotic photographers

- Guerrero's photographs offer a woman's vision of female erotic art

- Features a series of visual stories in which the car is a protagonist

- Hardback, quarter bound with photographic panels on front and back covers

In the third decade of the 21st century, we are witnessing an unprecedented exploration of female sexual power, while on the other hand reactionary cultural forces contrive to keep women as defenceless as possible. In this context, the work of photographer Alejandra Guerrero can be understood as a clarion call. Hers is a rarefied visual art that marks a turning point for female sexuality in erotica, her eloquent tableaux revealing the intricate ways in which women exert their erotic power. Here we see a future in which women dictate raw, yet refined desires. Each moment comes from the erotic fever dreams of the participants and the desires of the woman behind the camera. Guerrero grew up against a backdrop of sleek automobiles. As a child she would sit in the driver's seat of her mother's Mercedes and dream of one day being in control of such an elegant machine. Her father was a mechanical engineer whose hobby was fixing up cool cars, and she would watch him at work, taking in the details of fins and fenders. It sparked a fascination, which became an adult passion, which eventually inspired an entire body of work. Auto Erotica is Guerrero's second monograph with Circa and follows Wicked Women down the same electrifying road.
