I wrote a post about this model’s first MetArt pictorial, and I liked it very, very much. Now she returns for her second gallery, with a whole new look. And her appearance isn’t the only thing new in “Spirales,” as it is the first contribution by the photographer Vladimiroff.
I will take a guess and assume that the set’s title refers to the printed pattern of the wallpaper in the room in which the set was shot. It’s got vertically arranged curling lines in black and silver against a white field — a bold and modern design. It is somewhat busy, however, and when one considers the paisley pattern of Varya A‘s sexy dress, the stylized zebra print of some throw pillows, and another geometric motif on her shoes, it’s a lot of graphic detail for a photographer to deal with. To his credit, Vladimiroff somehow creates a pleasing harmony.
Varya A is in a long bedroom. Deep in the dark end of the room sits a bed. Between bed and window is a long, low, leather sofa, where the model spends all of her time. The lighting here is somewhat tricky. The room is quite bright where the sun shines in. And quite dim in the shadows. This results in shots that are moody and evocative, and a few that, in my opinion, are simply underexposed. These compromised images are easy to ignore, however, because when Vladimiroff captures both lighting extremes — as he does in #042 and #052 — the results are particularly pretty.
Varya A has changed her appearance considerably since her debut. Her long, not-exactly-natural red hair is now shorter, curlier, and colored a more natural dark auburn shade. And she may have put on a couple of pounds, not at all a bad thing as it has simply made her body a pleasing touch more voluptuous. Vladimiroff has included a commendable variety of compositions in “Spirales,” some of my favorites include: #014, a moody fully clothed shot with lots of leg; #034 pretty torso and headshot; and #068 for the way it captures the curves and contours of Varya A’s shapely physique. The first time for this photographer, and the second time for this model, results in a good time for the viewer.
