This image separates itself in some significant ways from the common T&A pictures that I see. In this image, I see true artistic vision and technical mastery. I see planning, forethought, and skillful execution. I love the selective focus, and the sharp detail in the surfaces and folds of skin. The expert lighting renders rich detail, and the backlighting gives the image an almost mystical quality. The sexuality is downplayed by the framing and the position of the model, but the sensuality is heightened by the subject matter and the attention to detail. Certainly not something that one sees every day. My compliments for a job well done.
I feel like this work would be stronger if the model had hair. It feels as though the sexuality within the content of this piece wants to be taken as artistic, but because she is hairless it just comes back to the male gaze and it's ideas of what a vagina should be like.
