Body In Mind believes that beauty is misunderstood in our world, I may not always agree with what they say but I do agree on this one. Even though I am not a big fan of beauty contests, I still am able to differentiate between what's aesthetically appealing and what I am cajoled to believe is beautiful. I certainly hate being made to believe that something is genuine when it's nothing but a cheap replica.
I sure can appreciate Nikkala's beauty, but what makes her beautiful isn't her visible ribs, her slender legs, or her big breasts(I hate big breasts). What makes her attractive in my opinion is her smile, and I don't mean by her smile her dazzling white teeth. I mean the spirit that she shares with us by simply giving us that smile. Beauty may be skin deep, but the beauty I am always trying to find isn't that shallow. I am searching for the genuine inner beauty which can be reflected on a model's look or a model's smile. Not the kind of beauty that can be offered by a cosmetic surgeon or beauty that can be given under the effect of an anesthetic. I believe that's the kind of beauty some websites here do offer, some websites don't even realize they do.
Beauty may be the obsession of our modern culture, but we should always use our minds to distinguish between what's real and what's not.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy this Nikkala Stott gallery from BodyInMind.
Ivan Kupala (Russian: Иван-Купала; Ukrainian: Івана Купала) is, according to Wikipedia, a pagan fertility rite. According to the article the name of that day came from the Slavic name of John the baptist (Ivan) and "Kupala" which is also derived from the Slavic word for bathing. What's interesting is that people would jump over the flames of bonfire while celebrating that holiday.
Body in Mind believes that those celebrations of fertility were inspired by female beauty. I do believe however, that they were rather inspired by the beauty of nature and its eternal rejuvenation. They also believe that some poses are suggestive, which is something that I didn't notice. It looks more to me like some models having some fun celebrating an ancient pagan holiday.
I hope that you will enjoy this Sergey Goncharov(right spelling) gallery from BiM.
You have seen Susann a couple of times before here at Graceful Nudes, the first time was in a FEMJOY gallery by Stefan Soell, and the second time was in an MC-Nudes gallery. She is German(Her MC-Nudes profile has provided me with that piece of information, the fact that she has worked with Stefan Soell further corroborates this piece of information).
I don't feature a lot of galleries from MC-Nudes because their main concentration seems to be big breasts, and I personally am not a big fan of those. I don't really care about the breast size of a model. I also hate the "seduction" theme of their website. It's not that they have bad images, explicit nudes just aren't my cup of tea.
Anyway, this gallery was beautiful enough to be included here on Graceful Nudes, it definitely doesn't match the quality of her Stefan Soell galleries at FEMJOY. but at least we can see her beautiful eyes once again.
I hope that you will enjoy this MC-Nudes gallery.
I am not dyslexic, however, I have just realized that I have been spelling(and pronouncing) the name of one of my favorite photographers in a wrong way. I was looking at this Domai picture and read the name of the photographer, but, to my surprise it was written as "Sergey Goncharov", I was about to contact Domai to tell them about their mistake when I just checked and found his name to be Sergey Goncharov and not Segrey Goncharov...It's weird how one makes such mistakes, I believe I need to read the name of the photographer every time I see any of his works to make sure I am spelling and pronouncing his name correctly.
This gallery comes from Domai, the famous simple nudes website. Their galleries are always of a great quality and I have never found any of the images there sexual or disrespectful. It's always beautiful and graceful photographs of beautiful models.
This gallery is featuring a model called Katy May, you can truly see the true philosophy of simple nudes by inspecting this gallery. She's just a beautiful model who's enjoying being nude outdoors and is glad to share her beauty with us. There aren't any unnecessary elements in the images, there is no reflector, no flash, no make-up. Just pure, simple, and beautiful nudity.
I hope that you will enjoy this Domai gallery.
AbbyWinters is not like any other nudes website that I have seen, their content ranges from the very explicit to the very timid graceful nudes, but even though they have such a wide variety of content their galleries and videos are never disrespectful to their models. You have a genuine feeling that the models are very positive about being there and are indeed very comfortable with their nudity, their smiles are never cheesy, and they are having a lot of fun shooting those galleries/videos.
I also adore the level of intimacy there, you actually get to know the model and to respect her. This is not so strange since all of the Abby Winters staff respect their models and they know most of them very well. The experience I had there as a member is indescribable.
Anyway, this is a gallery of the pretty Abby Winters model Johanna enjoying the warmth of a sunset outdoors, it includes some jumping and a lot of summer fun. I am glad the weather is starting to finally warm up.
I hope that you will enjoy this wonderful Abby Winters gallery.
Pretty Nudes is one of the few website which follow the true philosophy of simple nudes. Whenever I visit the simple nudes website I find some websites which don't really conform to their standards listed there, but, I consider Domai and Pretty Nudes to be the living example of how simple nudes should be like.
The girls are supposed to be happy and carefree, they should be enjoying what they're doing, but most of all, they aren't supposed to be trying to look sexy, an element which sometimes is present in super nudes. Simple nudes is supposed to capture the beauty of the nude female form and maybe combine it with the beauty of a certain location, away from those closed studios. This is what makes true simple nudes special. Unfortunately, there are a lot of websites which label themselves as producing things they really aren't producing, this misleading labelling often confuses those who want simple and plain nudes.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy this wonderful gallery of Megan from Pretty Nudes by Max Asolo.
Egor Abramov, aka Roge(his first name spelled backwards), is a Russian photographers based in St. Petersburg. I really found his works to be following the high standards of nude art and to be very beautiful.
There are very few photographers who admit that their works represent them, their ideas, their experience, and even their desires and fears. He's admits this fact and he's doing a very good job turning his ideas into real works of art. I definitely did appreciate his approach to nudes and his images did inspire me.
That's why I am more than glad to present this gallery of Egor Abramov's works.
Lisa B has such a charming smile that you will leave all the images and just concentrate on her wonderful and innocent smile. I remember the last Idilea gallery that I have posted a while ago, and I can't tell you how glad I am to see her again.
I personally prefer the galleries at which the models are actually having fun and their nudity isn't making them self-conscious. No matter how many nude galleries I have seen, I will always look at those galleries and feel glad that some photographers are able to capture the true essence of non-sexual nudity, which is the most inspiring nudity of all.
I hope that you will enjoy this Lisa B Net-Art gallery by Raphael.
This is the best example of how tasteful nudes are supposed to be like, simple. There are a lot of artificial superfluous elements which are added to most nude galleries. It seems that a lot of photographers can't just find the difference between nudity and sexuality, and, when a photographer doesn't really know the difference he's likely to produce sexual images which are tasteless. Adding the category of "nude art" to everything you see does nothing but confusing the visitors.
Nicol, an exclusive Pretty Nudes model, has one of those very charming smile that it's almost impossible not to fall in love with it.
I hope that you will enjoy this Pretty Nudes gallery.
I have been recently contacted by a new visitor of Graceful Nudes, and he shares a lot of my beliefs regarding what nudes are supposed to be like. He believes that smiles do add a lot to each and every image and that non-sexual nudes are indeed superior to other forms of nudity. Anyway, he did request some nonsexual nudes and here am I fulfilling his request.
Lillia indeed has a beautiful smile. I find it hard not to like those peaceful lake galleries. I also did like the reflection on the clear water.
I hope that you will enjoy this Pretty Nudes gallery as much as I did.
