Brilliant pictures, yes. Very glamourous; I am sure the girls and their families will love this book. But there are different ways the pictures can be interpreted and that makes it such a good book. You have to do a double take: This girl is 6 years old??? You could also see it as a study on the early age society starts demanding girls to be obsessed with their looks.
Look for yourself, and wonder: Should this be allowed? What is this teaching the girls? At the same time you will see beautiful pictures of beautiful girls, too much make up and a lot of fake smiles. Very intriguing and thought provoking. I loved it! Qori on Oct 11, This book proves that a picture is worth a thousand words. Each one made me want to cry. Look at their eyes, so weary, so sad.
The photos are brilliant, beautiful portraits that leave viewers to draw their own conclusions. Not at all what I expected and not in a good way. By Kellypryde on Jan 03, I purchased this book expecting it to be jam packed with interviews, behind the scenes fun facts and an overall introduction to the world of child beauty pageants.
Sort of like Toddlers and Tiaras but in book form. Wow, was I disappointed. The book is nothing but glamour shots of young girls. Who would buy this knowing what the content is? Yates on Mar 02, This book is all photographs great for a reference guide if your wanting to get into mega glitz but not very informative Miniature dolls By Robin on Jun 03, A remarkable slice of pure Americana beautifully captured by photographer Susan Anderson. Where else in the world could you find parents mostly mothers I suppose who would subject their kids to this bizarre pageantry style.
The ages of the girls, even tots, in the photos range from an eighteen month Gracie to a very adult looking Devan at thirteen. The animated poses, which would look quite normal in the adult glamor market, here only reinforce how artificial it all is. Some of the facial expressions suggest that these youngsters might be thinking: just what am I doing here looking like this! I was a bit disappointed with the books production so four stars. Great photos have been handled in a rather dull way.
Really the captions should have been centered under their names to eliminate the white strip and allow the photos to bleed off the page. Great Photos! Bo on Feb 04, I got this book as a gift for a friend who is a photographer and also a fan of the weird world of pageantry. She loved this book! I weep for a culture that allows, and to some degree celebrates, this sort of thing.
The photography is excellent but I am giving the book one star due to the subject matter being so repellent. Would I do this to my daughter - heck no. Do I like watching it and reading about - heck yes! The photography is excellent. High Glitz book By Venus Coleman on Nov 01, Nice book but mostly just full of pictures and not information on What to expect or how to prepare for a High glitz pageant.
The pictures are good quality, the book is a nice keepsake of By Acehitter on Dec 27, The pictures are good quality, the book is a nice keepsake of you have family in pageantry and want others to understand the child beauty pageant world. Has a page marking ribbon. Problematic and unethical By M. Small girls in sexualized poses Graham on Oct 09, I am an Australian who has developed a fascination with the American child Beauty Pageant ring. I ordered this book from Amazon and it arrived within about a week.
I LOVE this book. It sits on the table beside my bed and I look at it every night. The photography inside the book is exquisite and every time I look at any image, I see something new. The only way in which the book could have been improved is by having some background information on the children in the images.
It is a visual feast and a book, which would suit as a gift for girls aged But also for adults alike as it is a captivating and enchanting publication. Thank you Susan Anderson and Co for a spectacular and treasured book. This particular edition is in a Hardcover format. It was published by powerHouse Books and has a total of pages in the book.

Instead we get a couple of short essays including the foreword and introduction and then what amount to studio portraits of some very young girls dolled up to look much older than they are.
