Victoria’s Secret photographer, Russell James, has just launched his fifth internationally published book called “Angels”.  This book encompasses some of his best work with a stunning no halo, no clothes, black and white celebration of the female form.

The tome captures some of the lingerie label’s top models including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge for a 304-page tribute to the female form.  “The photographs are very honest and they show women in their best light. They aren’t vulgar, they are sensual, and that is what I love,” said longtime Victoria’s Secret supermodel Karolina Kurkova. “People like to work with him because he makes them feel comfortable and he’s artistic. It is timeless, and something you’d like framed in your house.”

“I hope people see images that are sensual, provocative, empowering to women and that show my love for light, shape and form.” – Russell James

For the past 20 years, I’ve had the good fortune to shoot the most beautiful women in the world, many of whom I met through my association with Victoria’s Secret. To the woman who appear here, and all those I’ve shot these many years, I want to say thank you for the privilege and, most importantly, your trust. I am humbled and deeply grateful.

Russell James’s photographs of the female form have become iconic representations of beauty and sensuality that are unparalleled in popular culture. The list of his subjects includes many of the world’s most beautiful woman, such as Gisele Bündchen, Adriana Lima, Rihanna, and Alessandra Ambrosio, to name a few. This ample volume offers an unprecedented and personal view into Russell James’s most intimate portrait sittings. Through his personal approach, James makes the connection between playfulness and sensuality, while his innovative compositions and technically perfect photography maintain the highest artistic outcome.
