“Cambio” starring Josephine — a fascination with feet and fingers…

Josephine: Cambio, by Rylsky, nude pix, toes, feet, and fingers featuredI’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.

“Ekeini” starring Victoriya A — a variable, versatile vixen…

Victoriya A: Ekeini, by Egon Schneider, young girl/very hairy pussyI must admit, it took a while for this Metart gallery — and this model — to grow on me. This has happened to me enough in the past that I now welcome this initial reaction, because it most often means that I’ll end up with a deeper appreciation for the series — and its subject — once I’ve come to fully understand it.

The setting — a bedroom or perhaps a luxe hotel room — is pleasant enough, with a neutral color scheme. Egon Schneider‘s approach is direct and free of drama or frills — no fancy lighting, no experimental technique, just well-crafted photography.

The model, Victoriya A, first struck me as simply a young, girl next door type. This initial impression — or, truthfully, this misjudgment — was the biggest (self-inflicted) obstacle to my full appreciation of “Ekeini.” Yes, Victoriya can appear to be a typical, 19-year-old girl next door. But that’s just one look of many this model is capable of. And the more I looked, the more I began to realize just how variable her expression and appearance can be. Victoriya A has a real gift for projecting a wide variety of moods and emotions. She’s a young innocent one moment, and the next she’s a sultry, seasoned siren.

As I marveled at each chameleonic shift in Victoriya A‘s on-camera personality, I finally came to understand what a rich, varied, engaging, and entertaining performance this is. And Schneider’s workmanlike style never overpowers his subject, indeed the subtlety of his approach lets Victoriya’s beauty and ability blossom over the course of a particularly generous 143 images.

I don’t care much for the costume, but that doesn’t matter — it comes off quickly and returns for a handful of playful images at the end of the set. Once Victoriya is nude we enjoy as she experiments with poses, attitudes, and emotions. She’s thoughtful (#009 or #046), she’s warmly seductive (#074), she’s confident and composed (#075), and she’s irresistibly cute (#069) — sexy, alluring, sultry, playful, the list goes on.

Schneider gets complete coverage. We’re provided with sensitive, moody headshots, formal poses and compositions, and many explicit images. Not only do we get to experience the variable personality of this versatile vixen in “Ekeini,” we also savor her physical attributes in comprehensive detail. A very satisfying effort by model and artist, alike.

“Calathe,” starring Gillian B — breaking barriers, beautifully…

Gillian B: Calanthe, by Flora, Metart HD erotic movieWhenever Metart‘s collection of HD erotic movies is mentioned — either on this blog or in member comments — controversy is quick to follow. Some members object to the so-called “behind the scenes” movies (filmed over the photographer’s shoulder during a still shoot). Others mention the lack of action, or plot, or explicit imagery, or a general lack of creativity and inspiration on the part of the filmmaker.

Metart‘s creative team is well aware of the challenges the format presents. They’ve issued new standards to the directors of their films, strongly discouraging behind the scenes style productions. Although I have been less than impressed by some of the Metart films I’ve viewed, I still think the genre — short, stylish, narrative-free, soft-core erotica — has real potential. And I’ve critiqued several films that were of remarkable quality, genuine works of erotic art. I’ve just added “Calathe” to my personal favorites list — if you’ve been disappointed by Metart‘s films in the past, this one is going to make you a believer.

Director Flora is quickly distinguishing herself as a master of the Metart short film formula. The concept, art direction, cinematography, editing, and thoughtful style she employs in “Calathe” are very much in the Metart mold, but she also explores the boundaries of the genre. How explicit is too explicit for Metart? Flora — and her beautiful, shapely, and uninhibited star, Gillian B — address that question by pushing the limits of the soft-core genre. In the process they break through some barriers, and they do it beautifully and with maximum impact.

Gillian B, wearing a bright green lingerie ensemble and red heels sits on a couch in a room decorated in a retro-mod style. From the beginning she radiates a warm, playful, seductive attitude. It’s not at all forced, and it’s completely engaging. She reveals her breasts with a flourish, and, in a tightly framed portrait of perfection, teases her nipples.

Throughout the film Flora periodically cuts to black, creating a visual pause, then returning to the scene. And as that scene progresses, and Gillian removes her panties, those pauses allow the viewer to catch his breath — this is a hot, explicit, and highly erotic film!

Gillian, a sly smile never far from her luscious lips, tiptoes — or should I say “tipfingers”? — right up to the edge of outright masturbation. She strokes the soft skin surrounding her sex, then she pets, strokes, and plays her hands seductively across the open, pouting, glistening petals of her femininity.

Moving from the sofa, on her knees, legs spread, back to the camera, Gillian B continues her eye-opening/eye-pleasing display. The explicit detail is a torrid treat, Gillian’s performance an enticing, pulse-elevating exercise in seduction. With “Calathe,” Flora and her glorious star set a new standard for Metart short film excellence, and they do it with skill, finesse, beauty, sensuality and by breaking barriers, beautifully.

“Enhavo” with Vanessa Angel — a new girl in the neighborhood…

Vanessa Angel: Enhavo, by Deltagamma, nude erotic art photosTraditionally, when a new model appears in her first Metart erotic photo gallery that gallery is titled “Presenting _________,” with the model’s name filling the blank. In the case of this new model’s debut, however, it was given a title, “Enhavo,” but be assured that this is Vanessa Angel’s first appearance at Metart. So, that procedural point aside, I’ll share my impressions.

The first six images in “Enhavo” are monochromes, but even when the artist, Deltagamma, switches to color photos, my initial reaction is very much that Vanessa Angel is a “girl next door” type. She possesses an amiable warmth, and her long, dark hair frames a face that is certainly angelic. Vanessa’s eyes — exceptionally big, glossy dark brown orbs — are a most noteworthy feature, and the artist offers a varied selection of headshots and portraits that beautifully capture them.

This is a debut set, as mentioned, and while Vanessa does project personality and readily assumes whatever pose the photographer suggests, including numerous intimate close-ups, she is not overly  expressive in “Enhavo.” Vanessa’s default demeanor is cheerful, relaxed, and friendly, with just a hint of intriguing melancholy in those big, brown eyes. I could certainly be wrong about that subtle undercurrent of sadness — but have a look at #036, and see if you don’t agree with my observation. On the other hand, when Vanessa shares a smile, as she does in #011, a pretty topless shot, she’s as warm, sincere, and happy as one could ask for.

Much of “Enhavo” finds Vanessa posing in front of a window, and this is where her girl next door quality is at its most pronounced. Later on she moves to a white leather sofa, and here she’s more polished and sophisticated in her presentation. Two of my favorites from this sub-group are #097, boldly and stylishly posed with explicit impact, and #111, a more demure, but no less appealing image. #129, a fully clothed shot, has a thoughtful, natural quality that is also quite pleasing.

Deltagamma closes out the collection with another selection of monochromes as well as a few more dramatically manipulated images. This creative experimentation is interesting and adds variety and visual punch to “Enhavo.” There’s a new girl in the Metart neighborhood — it will be interesting to see how she evolves in future galleries.

“Presenting” Tayla — stripping down to stunning simplicity…

Tayla: Presenting, by Alex Iskan, blue-eyed beauty/explicit pix

Evaluating a new model’s debut appearance at Metart is one of the (many) highlights of my position as in-house blogger. I do have my favorites among the established models, of course, and I always look forward to seeing new work from them. And I also enjoy those times when I first “discover” an established model, as was recently the case with Nensi B in “Uginta.”

But there’s something uniquely special about seeing a new girl in her first Metart gallery. And Tayla, the star of “Presenting,” is certainly special. She’s got a beautiful body, a warm, sweet on-camera personality, and she doesn’t hold back. Tayla seems completely at ease and comfortable even when the camera is in quite close, as it often is, capturing her most intimate anatomical details.

Now, the artist, Alex Iskan, has made some slightly curious choices with “Presenting.” The room is white — floors, walls, ceiling, furniture, the harp (yes, the harp) and even the chandelier is painted a shade of stark white. The floor to ceiling drapes and a sofa in the background, however, are in a vivid shade of teal blue. The color scheme is striking, to be sure.

But he’s dressed his beautiful young subject in scarlet tap pants and a black fabric and lace top trimmed in more red. Against the stark white with teal accents the outfit doesn’t harmonize with the setting. Indeed, as the costume gradually comes off, the set gains clarity and reaches its artistic pinnacle when Tayla is totally nude and the set design works as designed to flatter and enhance the model. There’s one shot that earned a chuckle: Tayla stands, holding those red shorts at mid-thigh, pretending to remove them. Her head is tilted to one side and the expression on her face seems to say, “Can I take these off now, please?”

Once she’s nude, as mentioned, Iskan takes care to capture everything Tayla has to offer. In #025 her breasts are beautifully presented. In #060 we find one of a generous assortment of intimate close-ups. In #098 Tayla strikes a stylized and explicit pose. Artist and model create a glamorous, stylish, pin-up in #108 with Tayla’s long hair spread out on the floor around her pretty face.

My two absolute favorites in “Presenting” are #082, a bold and explicit shot made all the more powerful by the spontaneous smile gracing Tayla’s lips, and #109 a beautiful, headshot that does justice to this newcomer’s beguiling blue eyes and her engaging, warm personality.

Pictures (and Exhibition) at an Exhibition…

Gustave Courbet's "L'origine du monde" (1866)It has been famously stated that “Life imitates art.” But what happens when art imitates art? Or, more specifically in this case, what happens when performance art imitates art?

That was the question implicit in a controversial art performance staged at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris by Luxembourg-based artist Deborah De Robertis on May 29th, 2014.

De Robertis, barefoot and wearing a gold sequin dress, walked calmly into a gallery in the museum. She approached a display of Gustave Courbet’s “L’origine du monde” (The Origin of the World), sat down on the floor with her back to the painting, hiked up her dress, spread her legs, and displayed her vagina to the numerous museum visitors in the gallery.

The Courbet oil on canvas painting that inspired the artist’s eye-opening performance piece is a frank and realistic view of a woman in repose, naked from the breasts down, her vagina exposed, central in the image.

Performance artist Deborah De Robertis (2014)De Robertis, relaxed, composed, and straight-faced throughout, held her pose as spectators applauded and took cell phone pictures. Museum employees were less enthusiastic about the performance, however, and they unsuccessfully attempted to convince the artist to cease and desist before attempting to usher the numerous — still applauding — spectators out of the gallery.

Ultimately, De Robertis was placed under arrest for indecent exposure and escorted from the museum by police. Prosecutors, however, once they’d determined the artist’s concept and intent, declined to press charges and De Robertis was released.

On that day in May Deborah De Robertis created a piece of performance art that was, on the surface, simple and straight-forward, if provocative. But the superficial simplicity hides layers of nuance and complexity. Additionally, the piece, like any successful work of art, invites contemplation and interpretation. And it raises questions, the most important of which may be: Why is a painting of a vagina considered a masterpiece, but the display of an actual vagina is considered a crime?

“Uginta” starring Nensi B — at the shore, a beauty to adore…

Nensi B: Uginta, by Paromov, adorable nude 19-year-old babe on a beach

To date, Nensi B has appeared in 11 Metart erotic photo galleries, including this one, “Uginta.” I have never seen her before, however, and for this I must apologize. I apologize to my readers for failing to draw this exceptional model to their attention, and I apologize to myself for remaining ignorant of this adorable creature for so long! Nensi B is a natural wonder, beautiful in body, face, and spirit, an absolute joy to behold, and this set is brimming with her beauty.

Photo artist Paromov has been aware of Nensi B’s potential from the beginning — he not only shot her debut Metart series, he’s been behind the camera for every subsequent set, including ‘Uginta.” Nensi B has such a fresh, bright, natural photogenic quality that I can only imagine that working with her is a delight, and I think you’ll see ample evidence of that fact in this set.

The setting is a mainly desolate beach at the foot of forested cliffs — I say “mainly desolate” because a few other beach-goers are visible in the background of several shots. She is nude, but for a glittering ornament decorating her naval, and in many of the shots her hair is wet after a dip in the inviting waters. The single prop is a white umbrella and its white plastic base and Nensi uses it to excellent effect before moving to the pebbly strand.

Physically, Nensi B is a delight. She’s lean, shapely, perfectly proportioned, as well as being toned, fit, and athletic. This fact is driven home in a series of shots in which she arches into a high back-bend, feet and hands on the beach, pelvis arching to the sky. Not only is this an impressive feat, it also shows off aspects of her 19-year-old body to impressive effect. Equally impressive is the fact that Paromov takes care to capture the pose from a variety of angles leaving nothing to the imagination (see #061 through #064).

Uginta” is explicit, nothing is hidden and everything is offered to the viewer with warmth and enthusiasm. Nensi B is adorable, charming, bubbly, warm, natural, and entirely uninhibited. I have far too many favorites to list, but I can’t help but mention #036, standing in the water and shooting an over-the-shoulder glance at the camera; #086 and #092 irresistible explicit visuals with a burst of youthful allure; #099, pure, natural, relaxed and adorable nubile beauty; and #103 which captures Nensi’s joyful attitude along with her sparkling eyes and inviting smile. Wow. Highly recommended!

“Drevene” starring Izabel A — young, sweet, lean, and leggy…

Izabel A: Drevene, by Matiss, young, hot, and sexy, nude legal teen

The Metart erotic art photo gallery titled “Drevene” isn’t the most explicitly and intentionally erotic series ever presented on the site, nor is it the most deliberately artistic, but it captures the essence of its subject perfectly, and both artist and model can share the credit for this accomplishment.

“Drevene” is simple, there’s nothing fussy or flashy about its concept, design, or execution. Izabel A, wearing a bikini and high heels in a matching shade of turquoise, stands (and eventually lounges) in front of a wall decorated with a latice of horizontal wooden slats. Wildflowers add a touch of rustic color. There’s the slightest hint of artificiallity here, perhaps it’s due to the lighting, or something slightly incongrouus in the mixture of setting and costume. But it doesn’t detract from the set in the slightest! Indeed, Izabel’s youthful beauty and the straight-forward, no-frills style Matiss employs here strike a perfect and appealling balance.

The set unfolds in a simple, logical, fashion. The first 30 or so images — out of a generous total of 151 — present Izabel fully clothed, a single breast doesn’t emerge until #034. In these clothed shots Izabel has plenty of opportunities to present her physical beauty and her warm, cheerful, sweet, and engaging personality. It’s hard to resist the youthful beauty and inviting energy she displays in #030, legs akimbo, smiling brightly.

As Izabel A reveals more and more of her lithe, lean body there’s more and more to like. Her breasts in #036, for example, are pert perfection. And the charms below her belt are equally inviting. Her legs are long, but they’re also toned and shapely, and her ass is round, firm, and adds a womanly accent to a girlish physique. Legs and butt are beautifully captured by Matiss in #062. As mentioned, this isn’t the most explicitly erotic series, and it doesn’t need to be, but explicit anatomical detail is provided in quanties sure to satisfy most appetites (see #120 for an eyeful of erotic delight).

Izabel A is blessed with a bright smile and big, beautiful green eyes, and they’re major contributors to some of my favorite images in the set (see #030, #101, #126, #146, and #129, a real standout in the collection). Izabel A brings “Drevene” to a comic close in #151 in which the young, sweet, and playful beauty smiles, wrinkles her nose, and sticks out her tongue playfully. Love it!

“Bengala” starring Sigrid — sexy in the city…

Sigrid: Bengala, by Albert Varin, 18-year-old girl's explicit nude pixWhile she states in her bio that: ” I live in a small town,” in “Bengala” this model is photographed in an apartment many floors up in a high-rise building with a cityscape providing an interesting and unmistakably urban backdrop. Regardless of the setting, it’s immediately apparent that 18-year-old Sigrid is a very sexy subject.

Although she is young, and despite the fact that this is only her third Metart erotic photo gallery, Sigrid has poise, confidence, and an entirely natural, relaxed ease in front of the camera. And photographer Albert Varin takes full advantage of Sigrid’s natural beauty and ability. Indeed, he adopts a simple, natural style in “Bengala” that perfectly captures and compliments his subject.

Tall — she’s an impressive and perfectly proportioned 5’11″ — with long blonde hair and sparkling blue eyes, Sigrid is an entirely natural beauty. She first appears wrapped in a towel and sipping a cup of coffee. Then she’s wearing a sheer knit top and not a stitch more. Virtually the entire set takes place in a corner of the flat against tall picture windows. The light is natural and flattering, fully illuminating Sigrid’s delicious details while creating a sense of warmth, ease, and comfort. The unfussy setting and style of the set, as mentioned, is the perfect match to the model’s beauty and presentation.

Although the series is simple in execution, it offers plentiful variety, both in images as well as emotions. In two similar shots — #019 and #024 — Sigrid, her derriere directed at the camera, presents two entirely different moods, the first calm and reflective, the second far more direct, almost provocative. In #028 and #043, both headshots, she shifts from thoughtful to direct. We’re treated to full-length compositions (#060 is a particularly nice one) as well as numerous, highly detailed explicit close-ups, of which #108 is just one eye-opening image of many. And one of the real stand-outs in “Bengala” is a simple, natural, nothing-showing headshot — note the sunlit strands of golden hair in the foreground and the expression on that beautiful face. Sexy in the city? Yes, indeed!

“Aglais” starring Amelie B — an incendiary interlude…

Amelie B: Aglais, by Flora, Metart HD erotic movieThe word is “hot.” There are countless other ways one might describe the star of “Aglais,” but that three letter word is a simple, concise, and accurate description of Amelie B. She’s beautiful. She’s intriguing. The various aspects of her physique, her face, her eyes, that long, dark hair, every detail contributes to her overall perfection. But the single most striking aspect of this performer is the pure and plentiful erotic heat she radiates.

I’ve commented on one of her Metart erotic photo galleries in the past, and Amelie’s sexual fire made quite an impression on me. But even that didn’t prepare me for how hot she could be in a motion picture. Flora, the director of “Aglais” clearly appreciates Amelie’s beauty as well as her smoldering sex appeal. The artist places her star on an uncluttered set. She’s wearing an emerald green dress and is seated on a lime green sofa. The film begins, Amelie starts to move, and the heat rises, without cease, until the final fade-out.

Neither Amelie B or Flora keep the viewer waiting. We’ve seen everything Amelie has to offer before even a single minute has elapsed. But the revelations continue. Explicit footage of the pulse-pounding, eye-opening, and irresistibly inviting variety is featured. And even the soundtrack, with its sampled heartbeats and exploding fireworks, reinforces and emphasizes Amelie B‘s searing sexuality.

“Aglais” is erotic poetry in motion — constant, undulating, writhing motion. Amelie’s hands roam across her body, teasing and flirting with her succulent sex, guiding the eye, tempting, and constantly stoking the fire.

With “Aglais” director Flora proves that she’s a master of the erotic short film format. And Amelie B demonstrates that — in addition to all her other gifts, charms, and abilities — she’s hot.

Enjoy the film, and feel free to share your reactions in the comments, below.
