Anne Rice writes the introduction to this excellent, large-format collection of emotionally charged, sometimes kinky photos of partially clad people. The title puns on the word underwear and sexy, secret lives. No wonder it attracted Anne Rice's intelligent attention-that and the fact that author Kelly Klein is donating all her proceeds to the CFDA Foundation Fund for AIDS. The camera empowers you to be intimate with the lens, even abandoned, in a way that may not be possible with another human," Rice muses. This book is a monument to our freedom, not only to express ourselves but to want more than we are allowed. The camera is the safest vehicle for this excess.

Kelly Klein is apparently just as odd as the people who made all those bizarre Calvin Klein commercials for television years ago. I bought this one because I like studying and viewing erotic photography and I'm an amateur photographer myself. I've a decent collection of books on boudoir, erotic, vintage, and fetish photography, and I expected this to be a collection of great images showing people throughout the last two centuries posed in their undies - certainly something that can be done quite artfully and be simple and erotic while still be tasteful. This book, in my opinion, falls far short of the mark.

It is a very large book and very well made, no problems there. The printing quality is superb and it originally listed (if the dust jacket is to be believed for $65. But, there is a reason this book has not gone up in value despite its having quality and having been out of print for a good while - it's a very odd book. Of the images contained in this one, I would dare say perhaps 1/3 of them are well done and intriguing. About half of the photos in this book are things you really don't want to see - older men with wrinkles and tattoos that look like homeless men sitting around in their BVD's. Even more disconcerting are a fairly large number (maybe 20 or more) layouts featuring children, probably aged six to ten, in their torn up or distressed underwear, posed in what I suppose is some attempt to look artistic - to me it's just awkward and uncomfortable. Personally, I don't want to look at children being posed artistically in torn up underwear in moody black-and-white photos - it's just weird.

The classic photos of ladies in vintage underwear ads are great, but that only accounts for too small a portion of the book. Pass on this heavy volume and get Bassman's lingerie book instead - a much better collection of photographs and a far superior book.

It's not what I expected, I was hoping to see more vintage pictures but there are very few of those in the book but it makes a very adult orientated table book.

Underworld is one of my `special' books. Much of my collection is either focussed on the technical aspects of photography or the product-high quality photography, usually applied to either Glamour or Erotic applications and a smaller collection of the best of Landscape or Sexual photography. Underworld falls into one of the smaller categories again and is one of the collections of classic photography. Underworld touches me at a certain deep level and I only usually realize after I've paused long enough to do my occasional casual flick through it.

Underworld takes my emotions back in time. Underworld obviously so well captures the sense of history that I find myself re-living being a child in the `60s and `70s flicking through the magazines in the newsagent of a small remote town. I don't just remember those moments but for some moments I am there again. I see the images of the lifestyles that seemed so surreal to the bright starry eyes of my innocence in the photographic styles represented, possibly taken by some of the same photographers. It brings back a time and place where it was normal to find people sun-baking or swimming naked but seeing my first published photo (outside National Geographic) which included a nipple, I thought `someone's going to hell for that' because it was obviously in a licentious context. This is a book of classic images that snapshot many points in history well. By the same token, there is very little nudity as such or sexual content, so much of it just having the undertone that was the hallmark of the style then, inferred but never spoken, in your mind rather than in your face.

This is a book I'd be happy to share with my Father, who, because of his and my shared interest in photography subscribed to `Australian Photography' magazine, in part so he could pass them on to me. These magazines came to me but not before any articles about shooting nudes or images containing such things as nipples, pubic hair etc. had been carefully scissored out. What little there may be in Underworld that would challenge my dear Dad's values and view of the world is in context enough and with the subtlety of the time and style, as opposed to the gratuity of our more brash, and superficial styles of more recent times.

I love this book because when I flick through it I don't just remember periods in history, I re-live them. I feel the sand between my toes, feel the emotions I did as a kid finding photos of the rest of the world bewildering and enthralling, I can smell the dry rot in the timber and a million other forgotten moments it triggers in my mind.
