Some MetArt models are chameleons. Put them into a scene or situation and they can instantly mold their expression to match the setting. Others are open books. They don’t attempt to hide their feelings, no matter where they are or what is going on around them, and their expressions are entirely spontaneous and sincere. And there are those models who, by temperament or calculation, choose to restrain their emotions and withhold those facial and physical signals that inform us as to their thoughts and feelings.
Kalina B. belongs very much in this last group. She projects an extremely narrow range of emotions in “Beviz,” and it is nearly impossible to guess what she is thinking or feeling. Yes, she does deviate from her “poker face” several times. She treats us to a smile in perhaps half a dozen images — she even appears to be laughing in #091. But, overall, this young woman is very, very difficult to “read.”
This is not a bad thing – far from it. The more I tried to decipher and determine her mood or emotion, the more complex and intriguing I found her to be. In #069, a headshot framed from just below her breasts, I can’t tell if she’s pensive, angry, impatient, frustrated, thoughtful, or simply relaxed. She could be any of those things. What is so intriguing is how she “plays hard to get” with her feelings.
When I turn my attention from the model’s interior life to Paromov‘s photos of her, I find much to like. #021, with its soft, pastel tones and lighting, has the feeling and composition of a painting. #070, hugging a pillow and raising her ass, has a subtle erotic glamour, and #074 continues in that vein with the addition of a pleasing, dreamlike quality.
I know what I’m thinking while I study Kalina B.’s beautiful body — I only wish she’d give a few more clues as to what’s going on in that pretty head.
