It has been a long while since I last saw Kings in a set, this one looks recent, so it's probably not from their archives.
Kinga is one of the few models at FEMJOY who actually care about who they work with, I had a discussion with a photographer who contacted her, and she said that she only does tasteful nudes, that means no spread legs, no gynecology today covers, and nothing that may objectify her. I truly admire that in a model.
This explains why this set doesn't follow Stefan's new trend of spread legs. I just don't get it, when you're good at capturing beauty, what's the need for the destructive effect of having a model assume a very strange post just to satisfy some viewers? You destroy your reputation and take the beauty out of it by doing so. Art should appeal to out higher senses, there's nothing wrong with sexy art, or art that is both erotic and beautiful, but you can't just juxtapose some fake sexuality over a beautiful image and calling it erotic art. If you have no respect for sexuality or aren't satisfied with what you're doing, your dissatisfaction makes it to the final images. I do believe that Stefan at the moment is being overworked, and I sympathize with all the pressure that he's dealing with, but erotica has its own artists. Some artists are just good at art nudes, others are good at erotic art, and some are good at both. I think that Stefan belongs to the first group, and what he's doing right now doesn't make any sense IMHO.
There's no story without a beautiful woman playing a central role in it. Beauty makes any story more inspiring and more exciting, there are even old mythological stories about women who affected the Gods with their beauty and charm.
There's no novel, story, movie, or tale without a beautiful woman adorning its plot. Patience Heatherstone in Children of The New Forest, Louisa Gradgrind in Hard Times, Helen in the war on troy myth...just to name a few. Every author throughout history was aware of the effect that a woman can have on a plot; a novel that's devoid of a woman's beauty is just transformed into a boisterous and course one: beauty has a soothing effect on human beings and female beauty is the ultimate beauty.
We may be more fortunate than the older generations in that we can inspect beauty in its full glory, the telecommunication revolution made it easier for us to enjoy art from multiple sources. You don't have to go to Paris or visit a German museum to enjoy artistic masterpieces. It also has its disadvantages in that most of us don't take the time to inspect that art, it's like living in Paris and never going to the Eiffel tower. It's there and will always be there, we start to take art for granted without taking the time to appreciate it. It also gave some misguided people to underrepresent female beauty in disgraceful ways.
There are a few websites where artistic or inspiring beauty can be found. FEMJOY definitely is one of those website, they may have a lot of erotica but they have a lot of masterpieces by Stefan Soell - my favorite artist till this day. This set is one of his many masterpieces that I greatly enjoy and hope that you will love as well.
"This is coy!", this was the reply of a friend of mine as I showed her the Golden River set of Kinga. It really puzzled me to see beauty being described as "coy". There are some elements in the gallery that led her to believe that it was devoid of the model's personality and that it Kinga was trying to look shy or passive. Is she right?, Are tasteful nudes really about models who are trying to pretend to look innocent or is this innocence something that comes naturally in such beautiful settings?
According to Cambridge's Online Dictionary the definition of the adjective coy is:
(especially of women) being or pretending to be shy, modest, childish or lacking in confidence.
I will start with the issue of her supposedly "lacking in confidence"; How can a brave nude woman who dares to share the beauty of her body even though she may have to suffer due to the actions of the beauty-haters be considered "lacking in confidence"?. On the contrary, self-confidence is one of the main things that a nude model must have. For this confidence is one of the attributes that make a model that brave and, most of all, beautiful.
Shyness is normal, a model may feel shy in her first photo shoot because she may not be accustomed to nudity or the presence of a photographer, but this shyness is short-lived and is rarely captured on camera. One of the photographer's tasks is to make the model comfortable, but this clearly isn't a problem for the photographers working with Kinga; She is as charming and as comfortable being nude as in the very early set of her by Matthias Barth(Body In Mind, Domai), I have never felt that she was shy or pretending to be shy in any of her sets. Therefore I don't think that the element of shyness is present in this gallery, and if the element is absent then how can she be "pretending to be shy"?
I don't see why this gallery can be called childish, the only thing that's related to the early years of life in any of Kinga's galleries is her innocence and carefree beautiful smile. These can't be considered a negative thing. Innocence is defined by Dwayne Bell as:
"Innocence does not mean a lack of sexual experience, and it is not a synonym for morality. Innocence means knowledge of ones own guilelessness. Properly, innocence means "shamelessness"....."shamelessness" means the brazen flaunting of ones own lack of guilt." - Dwayne Bell (Founder of Body In Mind)
Shamelessness here means having nothing to be ashamed of, why should you be ashamed of showing your beauty and purity to the world in a self-confident manner?. Does it make make the world afraid that some women do have the determination, courage, and self-confidence to be free?. If innocence is that important then why should it be taken against Kinga or Stefan Soell?. Those are questions that probably can't be addressed without tracing the roots of the current beliefs regarding nudity and sexuality in general. If innocence is about being open with ones actions and being open-minded enough to realize that there's nothing to be ashamed of about ones body then how can it be a negative thing?
Tasteful nudes are anything but coy, they mainly promote the natural beauty of women without adding any extra provocative poses or anything that a woman won't normally do in a non-sexual environment that's tolerant of nudity. It's the natural beauty of a woman that makes a gallery beautiful, and not those strange superfluous sexual elements. If a model is timid in real life then why should we try to forge her real personality?, this is the kind of deceit promoted by pornography. The sites which feature tasteful nudes aren't pornographic in nature. Tasteful nudes can't be considered pornographic or erotic because they simply aren't trying to sexually excite the viewer.
It's not the sexuality that I am trying to feature, it's the genuine beauty that's becoming very hard to find. It may be described in negative manners by those who don't quite understand the message of tasteful nudes. This shouldn't stop those of us who are comfortable viewing those respectable nudes from enjoying them, we may even have a chance of convincing those who have misunderstood the true essence of beauty that those images aren't about nudity per se, they're about the beauty of the nude human form. This simple understanding of the spirit of tasteful nudes will enable us to be inspired by them and to feel their true power while shedding our illogical prejudice about nudity.
I conclude this short collection of paragraphs by saying that my friend has probably misunderstood the true nature of tasteful nudes, it's not a good strategy to judge a complete philosophy by just viewing few pictures and relating them to the prevalent ideas about nudity without reevaluating the values that are hidden within us, this statement was probably made in haste and therefore is somewhat unfair.
I hope that you will enjoy this beautiful set of Kinga from FEMJOY.
I have a passion for beautiful nude images, and this passion is the main reason I never feel too tired to share some beautiful images with you. There are always some galleries that do stand out and instantly enter the list of my favorite galleries, those galleries are the food that keeps this passion alive and makes me happy to spend my time adding new galleries to this website.
This gallery is one of those galleries that I know will stay in my memory for a long time. It's as if Stefan Soell has shot it in a fairytale or in one of the ecstatic fantasies that we all have while reading a good book or listening to good music. It has all the elements of perfection, an enchanting smile, a beautiful model, simple nudity, and no sexual expressions. It's one of those few galleries that make you love life and dream of a better world, this is what true art is really about.
Stefan Soell as usual didn't deprive us of the smile of the model, and Kinga is one of the most graceful models and she's one of my few favorite models. I don't recall ever seeing her pictures without feeling fascinated with her grace and spellbinding beauty. I am sure that you will see what I mean if you take the time to inspect the beauty of these masterpieces by Stefan Soell.
This is the gallery that I have mentioned in my previous post. I believe that it's one of the best galleries of two girls from FEMJOY. Their sets of multiple girls together are always enchanting, graceful, and always respectful.
I hope that you will like this FEMJOY gallery.
Stefan Soell finds wonderful locations and takes the pictures there, it seems that he doesn't like repeating the same ideas over and over again, and I have to admit that his galleries are always different and very innovative. I personally believe that FEMJOY wouldn't be this special without his works.
You can see Eva in the background in a couple of images, something that made me really curious. After some hunting I found the gallery of them together at the same location, I will post that gallery now.
Great gallery of Kinga by Stefan Soell from FEMJOY.
