This week’s art column is devoted to Muse1979‘s Photography. Muse is Official Beta Tester on deviantART, Model, Actress, Writer, Creative Director, Liberal, and Atheist from London, United Kingdom. She explains

I am the model in my images (never the photographer) but all the concepts behind the images I post to DA are my own. I also design the majority of the sets, makeup and clothing (if any!).

On her website Muse notes that

the images contained within the pages of this site have been created with the sole intention of portraying the nude body as art…. There is an unbelievably wide spectrum between beautiful expressions of the nude human form and the portrayal of explicit sexual acts.

She wrote in the comments to her latest submission to deviantART that she was feeling a little melancholy during these, so we just went with it… It is called Time after time

Here’s one more example of her incredible contributions to deviantART, Early one morning… (“I love crisp winter mornings…”, she writes)

In this post I’d like to share a few photographs by David Winge, Nude Photographer from Orange, California. I think it would be rash from me to give any comments to the photos taken by the real professional.

The newest photo I found on deviantART is Fly Away, inspired, as I understand it, by the model Mila Ringo and Lenny Kravitz.

The same beautiful model may be seen on the image From Within (one of the photos I like the most) submitted to deviantART ten days ago.

In my previous post I’ve used as an illustration one of the excellent photographs by Wolf Brüning. Today I would like to emphasize that I consider these photographs as a vivid example of vigorous, creative art and also give a few links.

Wolf Brüning is an Art Director and Photographer from Magdeburg, Germany. In his photostream on Flickr one can find a set entitled “un.geniert-Aktkalender 2010”. It contains “advertising images and photos” for un.geniert 2010 calendar, which is a project of the student’s community WebUni from Magdeburg.

The following image was chosen for the current month, February 2010. Its motive is “a student’s life” or everything except work.

I’ve read about one painter and photographer connected with the Bauhaus school that his greatest effort as an artist was devoted to the conquest of space (quoted from here). I’m not sure that I understand exactly what they mean, but it sounds impressive.

My today’s post is about the monkey6880‘s photography. Among his numerous fabulous photographs on Flickr, I personally prefer those taken at some abandoned industrial areas. The contrast between the beauty and deserted industrial structures leaves a lasting impression of art defeating the industrial culture in its conquest of space.

The photographer wrote about himself

Hometown is Thailand, but live in San Francisco Bay Area. Love photography and always looking for outdoor activities partners…

The following image is from his Structural Nude Set on Flickr.

There are hundreds of thousands of nudes on Flickr but few are of such consistently discriminating quality as those of Monkey6880. (cosmos traveler in Testimonials on Flickr)

Today I’d like to blog the photograph by Andreea Retinschi, a freelance photographer based in Bucharest, Romania. On her site, she claims that she believes that a photograph should hold a character, and not just a model.

The following image may be seen in Andreea Retinschi’s gallery (WildRainOfIceAndFire) on deviantART. Photographer wrote in comments that she was thinking about Birth of Venus” by Botticelli when taking this photograph. She also mentioned that it was an abandoned factory with no ceilings and that it was probably around 12°C outside (~53°F).

P.S. Yesterday WildRainOfIceAndFire wrote in her journal on deviantART that she was hospitalized and sent to Intensive Care with a diagnosis: pneumonia… I’d like to wish her a quick recovery.
