eBay Polaroid Scam

I wanted to pass this along as a public service to prevent someone from getting scammed by buying these supposedly rare and original Polariods from one of Veronika’s photo shoots on eBay.

Back in the day when photographers shot using film, they used to take a couple of shots using Polaroid film to verify that the lighting was correct since they had no way of knowing what was on the film itself until it was developed after the photo shoot. With the Polaroid versions they could observe the results immediately and make any corrections as required.

Of course the pose and angle of the shots taken with the Polaroid camera would always be unique to those shots on the film camera. I know this for fact because I have purchased several of these Polaroids directly from several photographers in the past … and in every case the image on the Polaroid was totally unique.

I therefore was astonished when I saw a seller posting on eBay a set of “Rare and Original” Polaroids from one of Veronika’s photo shoots which looked remarkably like the exact photos published for that set. This was a set which was only ever released on Veronika’s original website. All images for this set therefore had the “Zemanova.com cat logo” on them as a result.

Upon closer examination of these so called rare original Polaroids, I could see that they had taken these Veronika photos and merely cropped them to eliminate the logo from appearing on the Polaroid as can be seen in the examples below:

If they were really original Polaroids for that set, I would have expected to see a never before seen image for that set (that is a good way for a good first check for authenticity) … in this case they are merely a crop of existing images for that Set.

Now the worst part … the seller is trying to rip unsuspected buyers off to the tune of $55 USD each!! What a scam !!

I could not bare to see this and so posted this announcement here on the blog in hopes that any real fan of Veronika sees this and avoids getting ripped off.

Gorgeous B&W Veronika

Thought it was time to open the vault and release a couple of new photos for Set 215. This set was shot my photographer Tom Millea back in 2002 on one of Veronika’s trips to Los Angeles. Tom photographed this set entirely in B&W and featured some of the most artistic poses highlighting Veronika’s sculpted figure.

The 3 pictures released from the archives feature gorgeous views of Veronika from the back, front and lying on her side. The side pose is worthy are being sculpted and take a spot in the Louvre if you ask me!!!

Veronika featured in Mar 2022 Issue of Dynamit

Once again German magazine Dynamit comes through and features Veronika in nice 10 page 12 pic layout from Set 011. This is the first full magazine layout in which Veronika was published in 2022.

I love the text introducing this layout … it really sums up Veronika:

Translated into English:

Can you resist these eyes, these lips, these beautiful natural breasts and wondrous figure? She is our undisputed top model of all time. Veronika is temptation and sin, innocence and passion, sensuality and a love drug all wrapped in one person. This is why we always wanted to see new poses of her. In the meantime, the now 45 year old has retired. These photos are an impressive example of Italian erotic photography. Pictures of a Super-Diva.”

So true !!!! Could not have said it better myself 🙂

They even got her age almost correct 😉

New Set 528

A new set comprised of 2 pics was released today in honour of Veronika’s 47th Birthday. This is actually a very old set shot as part of one of Veronika’s early photo shoots in 1997 by photographer Roberto Rocchi.

One of these 2 pics has actually been part of the 100 images on the website’s home page “scrolling image banner” since this website started. It was from the private collection of www.VERONIKA-ZEMANOVA.info and hidden there to see if anyone would notice it. Just this past month it was finally discovered by a fan. The second pic from this set comes from an issue of Japanese magazine “Dick”. These are the only 2 images known to exist for this set. The reflection in the mirror provides a perfect simultaneous view of Veronika from the front and from behind. Can’t ask for anything better !!!

Here’s a preview of the set’s contents:

Smiling Veronika :-)

A new picture of Veronika was released this week which I realized contained a rare feature … a “smile“.

Love that smile !!!!

After seeing this picture it made me think about how uncommon these smiling images of Veronika are. For whatever reason she never liked to flash her pearly whites as part of her photo shoots. Perhaps it was under the direction of the photographer that she did not smile very often, however, in my humble opinion she never looked better whenever she did smile and wish there had been more.

I scoured all her sets and made an interesting observation … whenever Veronika was around animals she immediately beamed with delight ….

We all know that Veronika loves animals (more than humans as she has professed on several occasions) and it certainly shows in her photos. The moral of the story is that I wish that Veronika had had more animals as part of her photo shoots … we would have had more smiles to go around for us all to enjoy !!!!
