This Metart erotic photo gallery introduces not just a new model, but a new photographer, as well. These “double-debuts” are far from unprecedented, but it’s always something I look forward to. And the fact that the artist happens to be a woman only serves to further pique my interest.
Anna Fox has chosen an exceptional setting for her first contribution to Metart. And she’s added props and costume elements to the verdant natural setting to create a rich and intriguing tableau. As the set opens Arina J, wearing a flower-bedecked summer hat and floral print dress, is reclining on a blanket and reading a book. She’s surrounded by lush vegetation and flowers in full bloom. A couple of pillows add to her personal comfort, and a basket of berries and fruit sits at the ready should she become hungry. Additionally, as the set unfolds, we see a thick forest in the background growing up to the edge of a picturesque pond. The mix of props and the natural splendor of the location in “Presenting” is rich with potential.
And our new 19-year-old model, Arina J, seems content and perfectly comfortable in this summery environment. She removes the two items of clothing she’s wearing at a relaxed pace that’s perfectly in keeping with the mood of that glorious day, and she presents emotions from thoughtful (#024) to subtly seductive (#080). While many of the images are of the tamer variety, just when one begins to hanker for more explicit images they are delivered generously and without reservation.
While the location and the stylish and painterly tableau the artist and model have created is extremely pleasing to the eye, the set is not a total success in technical terms. The bright, midday sun creates a problem the photographer has some difficultly dealing with. While the surrounding terrain is vividly and faithfully captured, the bright light on Arina J’s pale complexion results in detail-obscuring overexposures throughout the gallery. But I hasten to add that this technical flaw can be easily remedied and that the artist and model both impress in their debut pictorial, “Presenting” Arina J.
