I’m not tasked with critiquing sets photographed by the erotic stylist Rylsky as often as I once was, so it’s nice to have the opportunity to discuss one of his more recent galleries, “Cambio.”
The first shot in the series catches me off guard. It’s not a headshot of raven-haired Josephine. Nor is it a clothed, full-body shot of the type many Metart contributors start their pictorials off with. No, it’s a detail shot, a close-up of the model’s feet and fingers. Unexpected? Certainly. Thought-provoking? Absolutely. An intriguing and off-beat way to introduce a model? To be sure! As I explore the set further I soon discover that Josephine possesses abundant physical beauty, but that extremities-centric intro image sets the tone for “Cambio” and those toes, feet, fingers, and hands play an out-sized role in this erotic photo collection. The foot-fetishists in the audience are going to love “Cambio,” I suspect, but the collection’s charms will appeal to the casual viewer, as well.
This is only Josephine‘s second appearance in a Metart erotic photo set. She’s confident and uninhibited, two qualities that certainly help when she’s only been given a shirt as her costume. Even as Rylsky moves Josephine through a range of poses, she remains in a somewhat narrow emotional range. She has a very pretty face, with exceptionally beautiful eyes — a headshot, #086 captures them particularly well — but I believe that if she “let her hair down” emotionally, she could be far more expressive. Still, there’s something intriguing about her restraint.
After I’ve viewed the entire set I read Josephine’s bio in which she declares: “I am very shy.” Those words may seem unlikely coming from a young woman who has posed nude for explicit erotic photos, but it makes sense, and helps explain certain inscrutable aspects of Josephine’s presentation. I, for one, am delighted that Josephine has chosen to address her shyness by sharing her beauty and body with Metart and the world!
I’ll conclude by calling out a selection of my favorite photographs in “Cambio.” #002 for cuteness, with a hint of the heat yet to come. The series of shots between #042 and #045 of Josephine’s feet and hands. The painterly composition of #090 and #092, with the model’s eyes averted. The four shots from #098 through #101, all of which capture the beauty of the model’s body. And #114, a topless shot in which Josephine treats us to a subtle little smile, a highlight of the collection.
