If you've only been a member of MetArt for just a few days, perhaps even hours, you have probably already chosen a few favorite models. Over time those favorites may change, but you're always awaiting their next set, and you always feel an extra thrill when something new featuring one of your favorites is added to the site. The familiar face and body of a favorite model is a pleasure to be savored, repeatedly. But there is also much to be said for the pleasures of a new discovery. And so it is with the latest gem unearthed by Goncharov, the beguiling Ilona B.
Shot in natural light, on a somewhat overcast day, the mood of these photos is matched by Ilona's often understated and subtle expressiveness. This isn't a girl who dazzles or overpowers you with her beauty. She seduces you, quietly. A smile is often on her full lips, but she rarely reveals her teeth. Her sexual allure is strong, but it's more akin to a whisper than it is to a scream. There is joy in her eyes, but there is also mystery. The more I looked at Ilona, the more I wanted to see. And then, to my surprise, the series ended. With 89 photographs in total, the set is a bit short. But isn't fitting? Ilona's debut leaves the viewer craving more. We can only hope to get just that...soon!
