Yeager came to be admired for her use of natural light, sometimes enhanced by flash even in daylight, to make a model’s skin look luminous. But unlike nude photographers whose depictions of women were hyper-sexual and pumped up, Yeager found sensuality in a more natural look.

“Bunny has that good understanding of how to photograph the female body. At the same time, she knew how to captivate men’s sexual fantasies,” Miami gallery owner Harold Golen told the New York Times in 2011 when the gallery hosted an exhibition of Yeager’s work. “Her women are real. None of them are spray-tanned. Their breasts aren’t ballooned. They have curves and a bit of cellulite.”

  1. I like tributes to photographers. I have only had a couple featured in my posts, but this was a great post! Women who know how to make people that are ‘real’ look that way.
    You are one of a kind, you find people on streets, benches and everywhere, telling a ‘story’ of real people. You are very talented.
    Thanks for this post and also for liking my story about “Neverland” comparing to the world, where children in large numbers get kidnapped. Take care! Robin
