This is only the third Metart erotic photo series crafted by Alex Lynn that I’ve critiqued, but a pleasant pattern is emerging. This artist seems to prefer slightly unusual settings for his creations, but he has a knack for making them work. In “Cellier” he’s placed his subject at an electric piano. The model remains seated on the piano stool for nearly every shot, in many she’s wearing a pair of headphones, and in quite a few of the images she’s wearing eyeglasses. A model practicing the piano in the music room of a suburban home? Not exactly a typical Metart gallery, but Mr. Lynn, with the help of a truly impressive model, pulls it off.
Amelie B, whether she can play a single note or not, is a masterpiece in her own right. The refined features of her face are framed by long, lustrous dark brown hair, and set off by crystal blue eyes and full, luscious lips. Even in her cozy, casual “piano practice” outfit — plaid knee socks, panties, and sweater — you can tell her body is exceptional, and when she removes each piece we’re rewarded with visions of physical perfection. And when she’s wearing the bulky headphones and her glasses the unlikely props can’t detract from her beauty.
Amelie B’s beauty is polished and sophisticated, but she’s at ease and comfortable in the casual setting. While “Cellier” may not be the most anatomically explicit gallery of recent memory, Lynn does capture every aspect of his subject’s eye-pleasing physique. He includes a couple of “up-skirts” (see #083 and #085) captured from a “hiding place” under the piano to add a bit of titillating whimsy, but a rear-view of the model, panties down, kneeling with her assets aimed at the camera, serves up enticing erotic perfection in #047 to cite one tempting example.
One needn’t be a keyboardist to enjoy #079, a shot of Amelie’s pert breasted torso with her graceful fingers tickling the ivories. In #106 and #107 model and artist achieve painterly perfection with two beautifully posed and framed images. And headshots like #016 (complete with headphones and glasses) or #063 (reclining, face to the camera) capture this impressive model’s beguiling beauty with consummate skill.
