To me, supermodel Coco Rocha has always been a very inspirational figure, not just because she's a supermodel, her work ethnic, but also her daring nature and often stand up to address important issues which made her a rather important role models to a lot of women.

So when I hear about her latest adventure with photographer Steven Sebring, publishing a 2,000-page tome from HarperCollins called The Study of Pose, I got very excited indeed!!!

Rocha has always been known in the circle as the 'Queen of the Pose', and in this e-book, featuring Rocha in a simple leotard, under a single light source, audience gets to see Rocha contorts herself into 1000 different poses in 360 degree!! I'm sure this will not only be an importance reference source for any new models, but also invaluable to photographers who want to get references to relate to their ideas and concepts. From seeing some samples of the book, I think a lot of traditional figure artists will also love it to bits!!

"One of the things that Rocha is most proud of about the book, however, is its radical, unedited honesty. Since the forthcoming e-book allows readers to rotate the image, there are countless angles from which Rocha looks graceless—the opposite of a model. When Rocha does traditional modeling, there’s often a team of people using smoke and mirrors—or more literally, clamps and a wind machine—to make sure the image they’re projecting to the single camera looks perfect. In Sebring’s all-seeing dome, “there were no clamps, no wind machine,” she says.
“It was just full-on Coco,” says Sebring."
