The Open Universe of Massalo


Massalo


" I like taking pictures, it's a bit like fishing. I know it sounds strange but you are in contact with something that is bigger than you and you are trying to capture a bit of it, "that moment". 




"Open Universe"









Photographer, Painter, published Writer, Massalo lives in Angola, Africa. I think he's the first photographer from Africa to be published here, the main reason being they are not numerous on this continent. And don't ask me why.

In his self-interview, Massalo says he has not a particular style : "I take pictures. Christian Dior has a style. I just take pictures.", but you'll clearly see how much his photographs are original and innovative.


Despite his shy words, Massalo is truly a complete artist belonging these two qualities I appreciate so much : the modesty and the kindness, two more reasons to be very proud and honoured to exhibit him in this site. Thanks my friend. Pour ta gentillesse, ton humilité et les beautés que tu nous donnes.






















"Chocolat"

















"I believe that photography, and any other form of art, is a language that, if used correctly, can express things that spoken or written words could never.

It is a powerful medium, and beautiful too."















Massalo in BW

My Facebook daily Artwork : Yustinus Kao



From Jakarta, Indonesia.  What to write ? What do you think ? This photograph is beyond the words, what is very difficult for a writer as you guess. If you are on Facebook, I invite you to admire his beautiful album Baliem.

Yustinus, receive all my admiration.

Art-Models, Muses, what makes you beautiful



Muses, we love you and wish you the best for 2017

With admiration and love, Chris and the Photographers









  " Perchance to Sleep"






" Regarding the models there are not enough words. Without them there would be just a landscape, without their passion and expression there would be just a pretty face and for me the beauty of a woman is not in their physical attributes instead in what they have to share through self confidence, expression, understanding and trust.
Each of the models I work with share natural beauty, there is never any make up and I have to remind them not to do their nails, there is nothing artificial just body language and it is my job to look closely at feelings, light, mood and to integrate the sum of these parts.

These ladies are bright and their abilities should never go unquestioned. The models work hard and give 200% of themselves. It is for this reason that I must do my very best for them each time I pick up my camera. They have my utmost respect !" Gerhardt Thompson




A poetic tribute to the Art-Models
Written by Isaac Fowler
Pencil Artist and passionate art lover.

"Another Faceless Woman..."





This is the first Literary post I have made. I just wanted to say thank you to all of the art-models (as well as clothed, and partially nude, male and female) whose galleries I watch and art I enjoy.
Thank you for sharing and thank you for your bravery, honesty and commitment to your craft. I tip my hat to you all.





David Le Beck, in memory
"Naked Ambition" series





What makes you beautiful is not the nakedness of your form or the suggestiveness of your pose.
It is not how close the lens zooms to the most prized and priceless areas of your anatomy.
It is not the illusion of whatever suggestion is conveyed by your expression and the ambiance of your setting, nor is it the way the light falls across your frame to cast a symphony of shadows and highlights which seem to play in perfect harmony.









"The Water Maiden"



    "I work with people that are more than models, they are truly the main subject of the image - these people bare their soul, more than their bodies, they explore their boundaries, their freedoms and freely give of their emotions as well as their poses. Without these wonderfully understanding artists, there is no hope of Art ever being created." Beau eRomantica




"Rough and Soft"






Though all of these things have their place in the art you create, what makes you beautiful is something far more innate

It is your knowledge of self and freedom to express
It is the way you make confidence seem natural and effortless
It is the vulnerability you are not afraid to show
It is the union of your mind, body, spirit and soul
It is how your image transcends the lust of undeveloped minds
And portrays the elegance of a form ordained before time

What makes you beautiful is something much deeper than skin
Than your arms, breasts, thighs and unspeakable gems
It's what you show but don't speak, time and again
It's something much greater… It's the you that's within


Thank you.

The self-portraits of Harizma







"The stolen bride"






"To sink"






"Sunday"





I have not found many informations about Harizma (Alexandra Parhomenko). She is born in 1987, she lives at Kiev (Ukraine) and she works as a designer. And that's it... Because I don't speak russian and, maybe, she doesn't speak english. So...

Harizma is above all a creative photographer, and often her own model (self-portraiture is a tough exercise !).

Her inspiration is incredible and many of her pictures look like paintings. No need to talk about her talent, you see it in each of her photographies.


" Harizma is a true renaissance woman. An artist in every sense of the word. Her illustrations touch my heart, her photographs challenge my mind, and her beauty inspires my thoughts. I am in love with her portfolio."





"Jades"






"Desert Rose"






"Taste of tea"





" I just discovered her portfolio and I am in awe. She has a wonderful eye for beauty and art, in addition to being a great model - her self-portraits demonstrate her charm and beauty in addition to her photographic talents. Her photos and artistic flair will captivate all."
