Kamilah A ‘Artio’ by Karl Sirmi
Personality is important. It can make an ordinary girl irresistible, and it can transform a true beauty into a star. But capturing personality with a camera isn’t easy. It takes technical skill on the photographer’s part, certainly, but it also requires sensitivity. A gifted artist has the unique skills required to put a model at ease and then create an environment in which she feels free to express herself fully.
19-year-old Kamilah A has personality, and plenty of it. And in “Presenting,” her first nude photo gallery for MetArt, that lively, energetic, and vixenish personality is on full display. It doesn’t matter if she is totally nude and boldly displaying herself in explicit poses, or if she’s demurely positioned in more modest images, Kamilah A projects an abundant and extremely engaging personality. And when a girl this physically appealing has such an attractive personality it’s impossible not to love her.
Models can be difficult. They can be moody, temperamental, irritable and even combative. But in these beautiful photographs by the artist Arkisi this model is at ease, engaged, animated, and projects pure enjoyment. I could be wrong, but I can’t help but feel that Arkisi and Kamilah A enjoyed every minute of this photo session — and that sense of fun and positive energy is present in nearly every frame of the series.
The set design and minimal costuming are thoughtful and stylish, the lighting unobtrusive, the photographer takes care to include a wide variety of compositions, and the model is free to display different aspects of her personality as well as a range of poses and moods. “Presenting” Kamilah A is both an extremely impressive new model debut, and a polished demonstration of the erotic photographer’s art. A girl this pretty, with a personality this pleasing, is a most welcome addition to MetArt, and I look forward to seeing much more of her in the future.
