The setting for this steamy photo shoot is set around the backdrop of a sauna and shower – a perfect prescription for repose. The lighting is soft and subdued while the images of the model Tatyana are startling in their simplistic clarity. This is a young woman who commands the attention of all with her wide-open green eyes and short bobbed haircut that perfectly compliments her symmetrical facial features. The model’s hair shimmers.
The cover photograph from “Steamer” reveals immediately the quality of the photographs contained within the full photo shoot. There are few who could resist the overpowering direct stare of this model as she poses with her most personal spaces on display for a close-up shot by Slastyonoff. Tatyana certainly earns her place as one of the most recently voted popular models of Met-Art. She is a relative newcomer but she stuns with her debut appearances.
The ivory ribbed walls of the sauna and the richly textured coordinating terry towels situated beneath the model like a velvety carpet provide an unobtrusive backdrop against which to highlight the innate charms of this sweet model with a girl-next-door presence. The series progresses to scenes in which Tatyana is showcased while showering. Shower scenes are a popular motif with many fine nude art photographers, but this model surprises with her unbridled sensuousness. Slastyonoff and Tatyana take this theme to a level that has rarely been captured.
Tatyana leans against the walls of the shower with her bottom positioned within inches of Slastyonoff’s camera. Water droplets stream over the model’s full round buttocks. Tatyana maintains contact with the camera with her clear and mesmerizing eyes. She looks over her shoulder in the direction of the viewer. Perhaps she is imagining in her mind’s eye the desire that the exhibition of her form will create in those who peruse “Steamer” …
Tatyana slides her body down the wall to a crouched position while facing the camera. The model holds a silver shower head in one hand while allowing her other to rest just above her most intimate female anatomy. Tatyana’s lips are parted and her eyes beckon for someone to join her as she cleanses herself. The shower stream is suggestively directed to the area between the model’s open thighs. The title of this series describes perfectly the content of this unforgettable series.
