New zealand Photographer Launches 3D book of Breasts...

Imagine getting on the bus. Sitting in front of you somebody is reading what looks like quite a fancy hard cover art book. But those glasses they’re wearing look a little funny, like 3D glasses, and they’re sitting strangely and hunched over, as though they might not want you to see what they’re reading. You peer around their shoulder, look a little closer, and you realise what sort of pictures are in that book: breasts. Page after page of them. But it isn’t porn, it’s art.
What that person is reading is the aptly titled 3DD, a book by New Zealand photographer Henry Hargreaves, who has married his passions for both photography and breasts in a book where the images quite literally bounce off the page. Admittedly, it's a simple concept, and one likely to be popular particularly among,
The photos mostly feature friends of Hargreaves and were shot entirely in New York. There is nothing artificial about the book: the images feature women of all sizes, colours and shapes, and they strike whatever pose they feel like, from shy to grumpy to seductive. The book is sold with a pair of 3D aviator glasses and can be bought off Amazon or the 3DD website.

We always appreciate an appropriate use of a medium, which is why we're glad to see the aptly-titled book "3DD," a book celebrating the breast with 86 pages of anaglyphic images. The concept is simple—the contours of topless ladies bounce off the pages with the help of 3-D glasses. Kiwi fashion model turned NYC photographer Henry Hargreaves' stroke of genius stems from his fervent interest in both breasts and photography, i.e. he's a man.

As Hargeaves points out, "the universal truth is that looking and talking about boobs is just a lot of fun," but perhaps the biggest pleasure is that the breasts pictured in the book—of all different sizes and colors—are all natural. Shot entirely in NYC, the models (mostly Hargreaves' friends) strike poses from seductive to saggy.
"3DD" comes with a pair of 3D aviator glasses and sells from Amazon or the 3DD website, where you can also sign up for the 3DD/Day Calendar, which sends along a daily selection from 3DD via RSS.
