I was uniquely intrigued by the premise of this book and I was very interested on doing a review of this piece. I have been doing photography since 1983 and have studied some of the masters in my formal education and my personal endeavors. However, like all arts, sometimes a need arises for fresh concepts and ideas and to see what a fresh set of eyes brings to the table.

Well, I can honestly tell you that Jeremy Saffer is one talented artist. He combines traditional photography with graphic design along with some very talented make up artists to create a macabre and humorous story. The subjects of Jeremy’s talents are Ash Costello ( who also co-wrote the text) of the band NEW YEAR'S DAY and Kris DK of the bands GENITORTURERS and DEADSTAR ASSEMBLY.

I had the fortunate opportunity to see NEW YEAR'S DAY this last year at Warped Tour so I was looking forward to seeing her modeling talents as well. Jeremy has captured the secret of portrait photography. Any one can learn the science and math in school. We can be taught shutter speed, aperture, ISO settings and the use of the lights. However, what can't be taught and what separates is the ability to have that eye and the ability to bring the most out of our subjects.

Jeremy has done that in a funny and fascinating way. This book is basically what would a boy have to go through to date a Goth Diva, like Mortcia Addams and Lilly Munster and this book gives a visual representation of the different scenarios a would be suitor would have to endure. I really like the cute names of the sets like "Trying For Second Base" and the such. The unclose portraiture is extremely flattering and his use of a ring light really helps bring out the catch light in the eyes. We may just have a future Annie Leibovitz in the making.

It is available at http://www.jeremysaffer.com/tilldeath. The book is a 70 page 8.5 x 5.5 full color book with over 50 full page images.
