A behind the scenes documentary on the porn industry in Los Angeles, California.
After looking at this book (and thinking back on Sultons's "The Valley" and Meiselas' "Carnival Strippers") you can't help but think that being a participant in the porn industry is an awful life. Regardless of the money they make and your feelings toward the finished product, looking at these books is akin to watching a pig get slaughtered so you can have some pork chops. Butler is a fine documentary photographer, and while this book won't appeal to a wide audience, she gets kudos from me for her determination and good photos. Randy Kuhn www.poptophorror.com
