"Don't be afraid of showing vaginae, they don't bite", this is another statement that was recently made by a friend of mine. Well, in my case it's not that I have a kind of pudendophobia, I have my own reasons for trying to stay away from pictures that do give a prominent display for that part of the body. I may be repeating myself, but this time I will try to correlate my personal beliefs and ideas to the reason behind that behavior when i choose images.
It's not that vaginae or penises are ugly, when I see a vagina or a penis I don't normally feel any sense of excitation or any inspiration. I often inspect the anatomical structure of the sexual organs and name each structure then move on. I have read some books about human anatomy and I am very comfortable with seeing those parts of the body. This makes the process of seeing pure images of those parts of the body an inane one; I am not seeking sexual gratification in those images and I don't expect my users to be expecting that kind of thing, it's simply against my philosophy.
Most of the pay-sites(I do promote some of the tasteful nudes from those websites) and the other websites that are similar to Graceful Nudes have a lot of images that mainly concentrate on those parts of the body, those websites are trying to increase their bottom line, regardless of how they achieve it.
I have repeated this many times, but when I look at any image what I see is the beauty or the lack thereof; this means that the aesthetical appeal of the images is one of the factors that I highly value now. As Graceful Nudes is somewhat of a personal website that represents my vision and the types of nudes that I normally will gladly see, these personal beliefs do affect my image choice.
The main problem with most of these images is that they are not beautiful, inspiring, or even subjective. They mainly transform the model into a commodity who's being exploited to make more money. I don't see how a close-up image of a vagina of a penis can represent an idea(looky looky, here's a vagina *giggle*?) or depict the wholesome nature and the sense of freedom that nudity represents. Those images are mostly devoid of artistic meanings and mostly are a part of a tasteless picture gallery, they are the kind of images that are made to meet a deadline, and deadlines kill the creativity of the best of artists.
It's not pudendophobia that control my actions, it's not wanting to contribute to any objectification of the models. I personally prefer tasteful nudes, and those are the nudes that I am willing to share. Once a nude woman becomes more beautiful and less sexual than a clothed woman, you will be able to experience the true beauty of those nudes that I am presenting here. Hopefully some of you do like those nudes.
I hope that you will enjoy the beauty of this gallery of Jana by Richard Murrian.
Natural light, beautiful models, an eye of a great artist, and a good digital camera. That's a very basic description of Richard Murrian's works, I have to admit that I am a bog fan of his works. Just look at those images and tell me what you see. I can see pure beauty that's magically captured somehow into some digital images. Every photon of light is there for a reason, these pictures present the ultimate perfection in nude photography. I must admit that Jana also gives the images her own unrepeated spirit. Listen to the echoes of The Night with Jana in her 5-Star room hotel.View Gallery
