The first book i acquired by Uwe Ommer was ” BLACK LADIES”. On the cover a beautiful photo of an even more beautiful young woman. Her face sparkles with joy. Later i realized that his subjects were mainly African woman, but what makes them for us from Europe so appealing is that these woman present themselves as confident, westernized woman of the world .
Make Up, Hair do , even their clothes are in many cases not typically African. With beautiful woman thes photobooks are real page turners and do not disappoint. Benedikt Taschen realized the qualities of Ommer and launched his photographs in his books on photography, making these photographs available to almost anybody. Their price at that time a low euro 9,90, but times have changed and these one time cheap books are now searched and collected worldwide and at a much higher price level. www.ftn-books.com
has some Ommer titles available.
