A tribute to MetArt artist Slatyonoff

I’m sure members would like to join us in sending condolences to the family of Slastyonoff, one of our most respected artists, who passed away recently.

Slastyonoff was a much-admired photographer and filmmaker, and a great pleasure to work with – cool, with a unique sense of humor, a man who laughed at adversity and was friendly and engaging. For an artist of such prodigious talent he was remarkably free of ego, always open to critique and eager to try out new ideas and collaborate on exciting projects.

Slastyonoff started working with MetArt way back in 2003, and his unique vision of natural eroticism contributed greatly to making MetArt stand apart from the many run-of-the-mill nude sites out there. He was innovating right up until the end, grabbing members’ attention earlier this month with a scorching-hot movie, “Table Dance,” that showed off his creative flair to perfection.

He will be greatly missed.

I was so very saddened to learn of his passing. Some of my favorite sets on the entire site were shot by him, and following the path of his evolution as an artist has been very enjoyable.

Godspeed, good Sir. My thoughts are with those that loved you.

Quite simply one of the great photographers, this transplanted Russian, and a primary reason for my joining MET. Having seen bits and pieces of his work elsewhere I decided I wanted to see it all. I was not disappointed. So much good work! Many of the models Frank has listed did their absolute best work for him. He was a master. Rest in peace, Slastyonoff -- and many, many thanks for the indelible images you made. Go in beauty.

Up until now most of my statistical and historical work has been limited to our Models but with today’s post I did a review of Slastyonoff’s contribution to MetArt and it was extensive. As Rose pointed out just ten days ago he posted his 613th appearance on MetArt as an Artist with the movie “Table Dance.” I doubt even he could imagine when he posted his first photo set “Alisa” on Jun 28, 2003 that he would still be posting his work on Metart fourteen years later. Or that he would still be rated in the Top Twenty Artists now. But if yobring up his page you find that “Last Week” he was listed as #18 and “This Year” as #15. This out of 277 Artists. Slastyonoff “Presented” us with 55 separate models. He had sets posted of over 250 different models. Seven models he shot are, or will be, in our 50+ Club. Namely: Narkiss (50 times), Koika (33 times), Iveta B (25 times), Eufrat A (20 times), Carina A (10 times), Ashanti A (6 times), & Mia Sollis (6 Times). Narkiss was the 2nd model he ever posted and she would have made our 50+ Club solely by his work! I did not join MetArt to around 2007 but it was because of one of the models he “Presented” that finally got me to join. While Monika A is notone of 50+ she was one of my first personal favorites for her work here and with Erro, where she appears as Tubbea, on his site. Slastyonoff was responsible for exactly ½ of her 36 apperances on MetArt. As I go down the list of models he has posted I see many of the ones who I followed from their work with DeltaGamma and always appreciated Slastyonoff’s different “take” of them, such as Mia Sollis, Lauren Crist, & Carina A. He will be sorely missed.

When I read it this morning, I clicked on the link to his profile page in the article. The next hour I was completely blown away by so many of his galleries.

Slastyonoff is a photographer who could really make his models shine because he could adapt his style to the model's personality. Where he was quite posh with Iveta B (presenting her on a gold plate), he could be very playful with others.

Speaking of Iveta B: if there ever was one photographer who could capture her beauty the best, it must have been Slastyonoff.

His style of shooting the models both very explicit and artistic (in poses, sets and color) has set a trademark for MetArt.

So thank you, Slastyonoff. May you rest in peace.

Oh no, so sorry to hear the news. Slastyonoff had a great eye for glamour nudes, particularly bedroom settings, and he worked with many of the best models on MET, producing some of their best sets. He will be missed around here, and my thoughts are with his family and friends.

    I absolutely love her. She could sit on my face anytime. I just wanna cuddle with her naked. She looks like a good cuddler. Her butt looks so sweet, squeezable, and like a pillow I would rest my head on all the time. I just love everything about her. Her breasts are magical and so is her vagina. Thank you so much for finding this lost angel and bringing her into my life.

    I have only seen this luscious lady here, at this site - and those appearances draw, unreservedly, my appreciation. As a heavily medicated oldie, I am here to bask in beauty, youthfulness and sensuality - certainly none of my own. Probably an attempt to recall long ago entombed sensations/thoughts/wonders - and Jezabel certainly `ticks' all those boxes (thanks to the vagaries/exaggerations of a long life)! If I was a deeply-immersed fantasist, maybe her past/current practices would detract from those experiences - although innocence at even a soft porn site would seem a `tall order' - and thank God, or what would we be looking at right now! If she were seeking to enthrall my son, I might research more. If I was interviewing her for a job, maybe her other skill sets might need examination. But, no, I am just here to soak in that loveliness. Her past, to me, is irrelevant. I just love ogling her beauty and desirability now. Looking a `gift horse in the mouth' comes to mind - but each member has a right to their motivations for being here. I am happy with mine and the part this video plays in meeting those desires! Beautiful lady - and so far out of my reach that her other pursuits - short of slaughtering puppies - is immaterial.

    This girl is very pretty, but I bet we could make a fortune "leaking" these as the lost Katie Perry nudes.....

    In my opinion, if there were such a place as a Nude Art Hall of Fame, Alex Lynn's 3 Nasita videos would definitely belong there. This guy really knows what he is doing when it comes to erotic videos. I've only seen his videos of 1 other model, but they were similarly spectacular.

    His Nasita videos are so sexually arousing, yet so tasteful as well.

    An important component of Alex's competence seems to lie in his selection of the right models. You really can't teach a model to do the subtle sensual things that Nasita does in these videos. Either a model has "it" or she doesn't. I would guess that Alex auditions a number of models before he finds the right one.

    In his treatment of both of his models that I have seen, he maintains a "natural look" throughout all his videos. No excessive cosmetics, or other attempts to glamorize the model. He has the knack (and the artistic courage) to portray his models as simple everyday people, and not as recent arrivals from "Beauty Queen Heaven". That is the quality that I look for in Nude Art, and Alex has that nailed down.

    You don't have to make an exception with her since her breasts are definitely not large.

    Frankly, I don't like Charles Lightfoot's treatment of this model at all, neither the videos nor the photo sets. His "style" here is very out of character with the rest of MetArt.

    1) He has her partially clothed too much of the time.
    2) His photos, on the whole, have a hazy overlay. They are not sharp & clear.
    3) Out 3 photo sets & 3 videos, we only get 1 clear shot of her ass.
    4) The model's poses, both in the videos & the photos seem to be devoid of sensuality.

    I feel that this photographer/cinematographer is too fixated on the "art" part of erotic art. For God's sake, this is a porn site, after all, and not an art museum. Guys come here to get horny, and not simply to admire the aesthetics of an objet d'art. To be sure, most of us come here to see a tasteful, sophisticated, and artistic portrayal of porn, but porn nonetheless. From his work here, I must conclude that Lightfoot doesn't understand that.
