"A fascination with slender female legs in high-heeled shoes unites perhaps millions of men. Images of this kind show up most often in fashion photography, as a vehicle for displaying stockings, shoes and the style associated with them – consistently, for example, in classic works by Guy Bourdin or Helmut Newton, whose subtle treatment of the fetish aspect of women's shoes is well known. But the subject matter is so timeless and untethered to genre that it is also present in contemporary photo art, as evident in the work of Benjamin Füglister. Surprising is his chosen perspective: Füglister sets his camera on the ground, cutting off the model's image at the hip or navel. The void of the foreground - usually the unadorned floor of the environment - is sometimes over-emphasized, while the protagonists, lacking head or torso, are simultaneously depersonalized." - Matthias Harder, curator of the Helmut Newton Foundation, Berlin

The book Penetration presents several sequences of photographs and serves as a kind of flip book as all the images are printed chronologically. It includes an essay by Fritz Franz Vogel in English.
