It's amazing how technology can influence and change the way with which art is produced. The quality of scanned images simply doesn't match the quality of digital images. Digital cameras have also enabled ordinary people to produce their own art without the need for anyone to take a look at their images.
This gallery comes from a personal collection of mine of Ronin's photographs. However, it's one of the galleries from the times when Met-Art wasn't what it is today, therefore the colors of the images are unfortunately not that outstanding and there's a film grain that can be noticed in some pictures. This made me feel the role of digital cameras in the production of modern artistic nudes, there's no need to have a darkroom in order to produce your own art.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy these images by Ronin from Met-Art.
There are a lot of elements in a gallery that make it beautiful, and those aren't just related to the camera model or the lighting used. It's more about the attitude of the photographer and what s/he's trying to achieve.
I find this gallery beautiful, the reasons are easy to enumerate; it's that I love the galleries which are shot in nature and I prefer amateur models to professional models.
The beauty about the galleries shot in nature is that they establish a connection between the benevolent all-giving pure nature and its finest product, female beauty. When those elements are combined they often produce glorious results that are indeed breathtaking and inspiring.
I prefer amateur models to professional models because an amateur model is often more spontaneous than a professional model, this spontaneity means a lot. Also, there's a good chance that an amateur model will give us a glance of how the situation would be like if women were given the freedom to share their heavenly beauty with the rest of the world, professional models sometimes make certain poses that may be suggestive or not natural. In my world of ideas spontaneous means free, while artificial means ugly.
I hope that you will enjoy the beauty of those wonderful models in this gallery by Ronin from Met-Art.
There's a lot of beauty in this world that needs talented photographers to capture it. This beauty includes the beauty of mother nature and the beauty of the bodies that we are always are trying to hide. I am glad that now the technology provides the freedom required for the production of such beautiful works.
This world is very beautiful, there's no doubt about that. The ugliness is brought about by the evil and corruption that's created by some misguided human beings. The pristine Mother Nature is never ugly. Just look at everything around us(please exclude all the human made cities, I am talking about the forests, the colorful birds, the beautiful animals, and the things that you will normally see in the Amazon rain forest). Even the harsh Australian deserts are beautiful, there's a sense of purity that you can see in those sands and the random arrangement of the rocks, the harsh deserts of Greenland are also very pure. We can't deny the existence of all that beauty, we just forget about it in our daily lives in our crowded cities.
The worst thing of all is that we forget that beauty of ourselves. We're beautiful, but we are ashamed of our bodies and how we look like. We always look for extraneous objects and ornaments to try to make ourselves "look better", even in some nations some women who are wearing several layers of make-up appear on the television daily, some women suffer in high heels because they think they make them more attractive. We forget that purity and simplicity are the ultimate forms of beauty that are preferred by many. The insecurities and the false beliefs that our cultures make us have simply make us forget who we truly are.
I belief that one of the worst things that some modern cultures inculcate into the minds of those who belong to them is the philosophy of body shame. Even if you're a religious Christian man there's nothing against pure nudity as long as lust isn't involved, and isn't this what the artistic and nonsexual representations of nudity are about?, if it doesn't come from the religion then it comes from the culture, and we know that cultural laws aren't always right. Even the modern European and American cultures were one day(and some are still, but are slowly changing) misogynistic.
The claims that are made against nudity include:
1- Nudity is about sexuality.
2- Nudity isn't appropriate for minors to see.
3- Nudity is wrong(if a claim isn't supported by reasons then it's a false one).
Nudity certainly isn't about sexuality, one doesn't become sexually excited when s/he sees Titian's Danae or Bouguereau's Baigneuse, s/he doesn't also get sexually excited while strolling in Paris' streets and inspecting the sculptures. There are a lot of non-sexual nudes out there, it all really depends on the attitude of the viewer, but even that attitude is created when that person has been living a life of body shame. When one sees nudity as a natural part of life one learns that nudity is very separate from sexuality, and therefore the first claim is a false one.
Some minors are raised up in nudist households where social nudity is tolerated, and if you make a Google search about the subject you will find a lot of good resources about that argument. However, if you want to know the conclusion of most of those websites, then it's that the minors who are brought up in an environment where nudity is acceptable and not viewed as a shameful thing aren't as preoccupied with sex as their average counterparts who are brought up in non-nudist households, are more comfortable about the changes that are associated with puberty, aren't regular consumers of pornography, and are more open about sexuality. The second claim is proved to be false.
The third claim is false because it simply states no reasons, I have already mentioned that Christianity has nothing against nudity.
The strange body shame that some people have is mainly a cultural concept, thinking about it in a society where nudity is accepted then most of marketing agents will be unemployed. The relationship that's established between nudity and sex in some cultures is very beneficial to those who want to sell their products; a lot of Hollywood movies have references to sex and nudity scenes to gain popularity, the commercials of companies that sell cosmetic products are always trying to convince you that you won't be attractive without their products. Those commercials make you feel unattractive and unhealthy, they will try to make you feel that you won't be complete without their products. So, it's a beneficial thing for the media, I don't really wonder why this body shame is supported by them.
In conclusion, beauty is everywhere but we shouldn't forget that we are beautiful as well. We should remember to pause for a little while everyday to appreciate beauty, whether that may be the beauty of nature, the beauty of nude bodies, or any kind of beauty. It's good and helps us carry on with our daily lives.
I hope that you will enjoy this Met-Art gallery by Ronin.
