"What does it even mean for women, to grow old gracefully? I'd rather stay young and naughty!" - Olga Tschechova - Actress
This book features over 300 images by Czech-based photographer Mark Novak. After the contents page, there is a short introduction Rather Stay Young and Naughty... which is presented in several languages (English, French, Dutch, Spanish, and Italian). The book focuses on young and beautiful girls set against natural surroundings.
In the introduction, Doc Goliath states that "there seems to be an overlapping intercultural consensus as to what constitues real beauty," such as flawless skin, symmetry of the face, long and slender legs, etc. The models featured in the book represent these qualities. The "sweet beauties" are mostly Eastern European with long blonde or dark hair. They are nude and pose in either a playful or seductive manner.
The settings are outdoor backdrops: fields, parks, driveaways, and the exterior of a log cabin. The models pose against grass, trees, rocks, and the aforementioned log cabin. The lighting appears to be mainly natural with little evidence of flash or continuous lighting assistance.
My favorite images are on pages 64-73. This photo series featured a dark-haired and pale-skinned girl set against a Wintery backdrop. The images are coldly beautiful. This photo set stands out to me. Also, there is a photo series on pages 42-49 that is set against a corn field with a brunette model that is very creative.
I personally prefer fetish-themed erotic photography books, but I can appreciate the technical expertise in these photos and there is no denying that the models are beautiful to look at.
