I recently received a message from a visitor of Graceful Nudes that required some explanation on my behalf of the philosophy of Graceful Nudes. It was a very enlightening message as it allowed me to analyze my fascination of beauty. I also realized that I haven't(or do not remember that I have) explained how nudes can be moral and how it can affect your life.
First, I need to say that photography in all its glamour and beauty is somewhat a poor medium. It is able to eternalize a single moment and to capture fine details that our busy minds ignore, but it has an inherent weakness, it cannot fully capture the personality of the model. You can see charisma, you can see attitude, and you can see beauty, but you cannot see beliefs or converse with the model. A picture is a mere collection of pixels with different color values.
Second, the world is not perfect. The motives of the models and the photographers range from purely selfish to altruistic. Therefore, I cannot claim that every model is an angel or that every photographer is a messiah.
You have probably pondered the thought of exploitation and how "the models are represented as bodies when they are in the nude", whether it's right or wrong to view those images and whether you are respecting the person or doing someone injustice through inspecting and experiencing the beauty in the images.
Does this mean that Graceful Nudes and Super Nudes are just an attempt to give you what you want to hear?
Of course not.
None of us has ever met the woman depicted in La Joconde, have never met Artemis or Aphrodite. Yet, we are fascinated by their characters. We can claim that we have met them, felt their personality, and that they are the most beautiful females that have ever roamed the Earth(or mount Olympus).
Our minds create that fascination.
Some Graceful Nudes are more than pixels, my mind connects those pixels together and creates a live image of the model, a beautiful canvas from another dimension, a temporary utopia. She becomes the most beautiful and ethical woman in the world, the true essence of perfection that somehow appeared on earth and was enigmatically captured by an obscure but a very lucky man. I let the perfect lady in the picture guide me towards the light and perfection, through the darkness, and through bad times. It did change several aspects of my life and I am glad about it.
A pile of rocks is nothing but a pile of rocks, but arrange those rocks properly and you can build a Rome.
Your mind is the engineer that puts those pieces together. However, many fail to see what those nudes have to offer due to some preconceptions that probably are implanted in their minds by pornography. Like a virus, those malicious ideas infest the inspiration and one's ability to see beyond the colors, the curves, and the bodies.
I tend not to be cynical about the models and the photographers, whatever their intentions may be. I just trust them until they betray that trust, I have never met Stefan Soell or Helena. Judging them will be extremely unfair.
Saying that tasteful nudes exploit models is like saying that we should never visit the Louvre, or that we should burn Botticelli's or Bouguereau's works. We acknowledge the fact that the model is a human being, and breathe a spirit into what she represents in a picture. It's like how you can be fascinated with the role of an actress in a movie, and falling in love with the character. This doesn't mean that you love the actress or that you negate her existence in real life. You just admit that you do not know her, you know the role she did, and it is that character that you love. Ignorance can sometimes be a bliss. You will be living a delusion if you love the person behind the character.
It's a melange of imagination, beauty, freedom, and all the beautiful meanings in the world; It is a representation of human compassion, feelings, and love, but we just need to listen, to put our hatred aside, and to become what we always wanted to be.
Compare between this gallery and the other two galleries of Helena that I've posted earlier and you will know why I love Stefan Soell, no one can capture the beauty of the female form like him and present it in such a positive way.
Now I can announce that the exploration journey is over as this is the last gallery of Helena, I am sure that there will be more updates of her, Eva, Kinga, and Corinna in the future. We just have to wait.
This is the last gallery for now. I will try to add more galleries tomorrow by 14:00 UTC.
I hope that you will like all of today's updates.
Those were all of Eva's galleries, now I'm moving to the third girl, Helena, who's just as beautiful as Kinga and Eva.
