I was just listening to a song by the German band Regicide called "Nothing In Here", The song is mainly dealing with the superficial values of our modern world which basically want women to look the same; skinny with tons of make-up on, but how does this relate to Graceful Nudes?
Some people may call me superficial when I mention that a certain model is beautiful without even getting to know her, some people may comment on the fact that I don't include pictures of women who are overweight. A simple reply may be, We have the right to appreciate outer beauty, however this kind of appreciation becomes obnoxious in real life only when this is the only thing you appreciate about a certain person, you should appreciate their personalities, their beliefs, and theirselves. These are the important things.
I don't include pictures of overweight models because I don't want to promote the health dangers associated with obesity.
Anyway, I just wanted to express a part of my philosophy regarding my choice of galleries to feature.
O.K. Back to our main topic, here's the description of Kathryn provided by Hegre-Art:
"Kathryn was born in South Africa but currently resides in London.
SHE MAKES her way in the world as a professional model and was delighted at the chance to work with a photographer like Petter Hegre. Having become used to the confines that are common in the world of fashion and glamour work, the opportunity to let loose and do a shoot completely nude was a fantastic change of pace.
With a slim and toned body, Kathryn readily admits her love of nature, especially the ocean. Her long brown hair and light complexion gives her the appearance of a mermaid when she glides through the water, her body moving with a certain harmony that only those who love the sea can possess.
Petter couldn't help but laugh a little and called her a hippie when he learned that she is a vegetarian, a fact that she is quite proud of."
Once you look at her model profile at Hegre-Art, you will understand why her sets are amongst my favorites. Some models seem to bring out the best of Petter, if you notice all of her galleries are innovative and unique.
This is just one of her sample Galleries from Hegre-Art.
Enjoy Kathryn in Esthetical!
I am sorry I cut the flow of Lezhan's galleries, I really like offering you all the galleries I can of the models I find special, and Lezhan is one of the models whom I consider very special.
I have just noticed that Hegre has used two versions of Lezhan's name, he used Lezahn in some galleries and Lezhan in others, I am not from South Africa but maybe the pronunciation makes it easy to write it both ways or maybe it's just a typo by an editor(I doubt that it's a typo as Hegre is known for his professionalism, and even though I don't like all the contents he offers, he sure has a so good design of his website that a lot of other websites are just literally imitating it). If you're a member of Hegre-Art then I recommend that you go to Lezhans profile in the models page and download her Sunrise and Sunset galleries, which are some of my favorite Hegre galleries.
I hope that you will find this gallery attractive.
What caught my attention about this gallery is Lezhan's flowing golden hair and the simple daylight which gives the whole gallery a sense of being natural. The beauty of South Africa is reflected on Lezhan's face, which gives it a charming aura.
Petter Hegre sometimes can produce wonders, he's a very good talent however, he recently hasn't been really using it. The images which made him enter the hall of fame were, in my opinion, those of Nude Yoga(The set Vibeke Nude Yoga can be found if you visit the last page of this website). Recently I have noticed that he's featuring more images of very thin models(yes, you can skip that surface anatomy section now).
I was browsing his collection in order to choose the gallery to feature here on Graceful Nudes, and I seem to have found a pattern. Most of the models in the recent updates start by wearing lingerie or panties and then they slowly take them off, the sets are concluded by a close-up of the model's outer genitalia and you may get a chance to see the external urethral orifice as a bonus, and of course I won't forget the images in which the models caress their breasts.
I don't believe that these kinds of sets can be labeled as art, maybe as erotic images or even as "softcore/teen", I don't know what has happened to some of the best websites. I do know how it feels like to be pressured to release an update everyday in order to write the attractive sentence "We offer daily updates", Indeed you do, but this doesn't necessarily mean that you offer quality updates.
I believe that every model has her own right to shine, I prefer complexity in nude art, However, when all of the galleries follow the same theme(a model sitting on a chair?) and the models are making the same poses, the model just becomes another girl in the crowd, eventually she will become an tool that stimulates the basic sexual instincts of the visitor and a favorite tool which aids in masturbation(I have nothing against masturbation, but I do hate it when the model loses everything she stands for and to be viewed as a statue without feelings that's to be exploited).
I don't have anything against Petter Hegre, I just feel that it's my duty as a fan and as a webmaster to express my honest opinion of the trend that most websites seem to be following.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy this gallery.
Green is one of my favorite color, that's one of the reasons I can never resist adding a gallery which was shot in a garden, in the forest, in a backyard garden, etc.
Lezhan is one of the models who have a strange presence in the pictures, she's beautiful, but her beauty isn't a calm one, it's rather adventurous and full of love for life. Her eyes seem to be hiding a lot of untold secrets and her skin seems to hide a wonderful soul that's hiding deep within her body.
I hope that you will enjoy this gallery from Hegre-Art!
Lezhan is a favorite model of mine, every image, every look, and every facial expression awaken a different feeling deep inside me. She has that kind of angelic yet self-confident kind of beauty.
If you take a look behind the tree you will find the sea, which is a combination that I really like. Also, the combination of deep shadows and the small rays of sunlight produces an exotic experience which make you feel like you're in the middle of a rain forest.
It's just a naturally beautiful girl embracing the beauty of mother Gaia.
South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries on earth. If you have ever been there, then you probably know what I mean, the natural scenery, the clean cities, and most of all the beautiful girls.
Lezhan is also one of the most charming ladies that you can find online. She gives all the images a special taste and feeling that will make you fall in love with every single pixel. She's charismatic and beautiful, I personally believe that she's a wonderful person in real life.
Enjoy this quality gallery from Hegre Art.
Enjoying the embrace of the sun and the soothing water underneath. Lezhan seems to be standing in heaven with her glistening skin and her flowing golden hair. Her eyes are as clear as the water she's relaxing in. You can feel an aura of something special around her, Lezhan is an angel indeed. Enjoy this soothing gallery from Hegre-Art with Lezhan.View Gallery
