Sandra A. has a quiet type of beauty. Her small breasts and slender build might render her invisible to those who value cup size over all, but her proportions are pleasing, nonetheless. She is beautiful, but her beauty is understated, natural, and unpretentious. Zlatko appears to have recognized these truths, and he has crafted a simple but entirely satisfying series that perfectly captures the model’s delicate essence.
The bathroom setting, with its muted white and off-white color scheme, flatters Sandra’s pale, creamy skin and golden hair. There is little in the way of distraction here, and the dark, print dress she is wearing as the series begins is cast aside after an appropriate interval. As she disrobes, and once she’s totally nude, Sandra A. works her subtle magic. Even in more contrived, stylized poses, there is a delicate ease and grace on display. And in relaxed, more natural poses, Sandra A. is simply, and once more, subtly, beautiful.
I don’t doubt that, under different circumstances, Sandra A. could deliver sets with far more drama and a bolder, louder style and theatricality. But here, in this delicate, understated series, I find her subtly – and completely – satisfying.
