Remembering Bunny Yeager: Photos From the Life of a Pin-Up Legend
Yeager's legacy is the sexy, sophisticated pin-up, nude photos of women in which the subject owns her own sexuality. A post-feminist artist in a pre-feminist world, Yeager's groundbreaking photos helped to lay the foundation for the Sexual Revolution.

"I knew my body and women's bodies better than the men did," Yeager told New Times in 2011. "As a successful model, it was easy for me to make the girls I was photographing look great. For me, making the girls feel comfortable and creating a scene that made the photo come to life was just the natural thing to do."
Yeager's work also inspired artists like Cindy Sherman, as well as plenty of Miami gallerists; in recent years, Yeager has been the subject of exhibits at Dezer Schauhalle, the World Erotic Art Museum, and Harold Golden Gallery, whose "The Fabulous Bunny Yeager" exhibit won New Times' Best Gallery Exhibit in 2012.
