I’ve only seen one other MetArt erotic photo set featuring Yani A. I liked it very much. It was beautifully and stylishly photographed, but I was really won over by the model. She is a girl next door, not a glamorous film star type, but she has an absolutely beguiling charm and engaging personality. She’s also extremely uninhibited and gives herself completely to the camera.
Everything I liked about Yani A the first time I saw her is present in “Enalages.” I don’t think this series represents Alex Iskan’s best work, but Yani A is so pleasing to the eye and exhibits such a wonderful personality that I consider the pictorial a success. I particularly like the way Iskan has chosen to begin his photo essay. In the first ten images Yani is in a bathroom. Her hair is wet as if she’s just emerged from the bath. And she stands at a sink and brushes her teeth. This little “slice of life” gives us a look at the model in a natural, un-staged, behind the scenes way that I enjoy — it’s not a side of the model we often get to see, and it really helps round out one’s sense of who she is.
In shot #011 the set “officially” begins. Yani A is on a couch, in a body black body suit, and she’s fully coiffed and styled. The furniture and the décor in the room isn’t particularly pleasing, but it doesn’t really matter. Yani A is so expressive, so playful, and so disarming that she overrides any aesthetic or stylistic weaknesses in the photography. And Yani A is, happily, still as completely uninhibited and naturally sexy as ever. To his credit, Alex Iskan takes full advantage of Yani’s lack of inhibition and the set boasts numerous detailed, explicit close-ups.
Yes, Yani A is a delicious young girl. But as pleasing as her physical attributes are, it’s her spirit, her personality, her compelling cuteness that makes “Enalages” so enjoyable.
