[Video] Naked Beauty and a Timely Lion by Sylvie Blum

by Violet Blue on July 20, 2011

The above video Naked Beauty featuring Vel Jones shot by model-turned-photographer Sylvie Blum is nothing short of hypnotic. Finding this video led me to her website where her super-sexy fashion photography is showcased alongside her upcoming book Naked Beauty, and galleries of remarkable nudes with women and men in and out of stunning (and occasionally fetishy) lingerie and couture. I love her balance of male and female nudes. Blum’s book lands in September, it can be pre-ordered now, and it’s on my want list – she’s worked with Helmut Newton, and I think this is going to be one to collect. New and exciting stuff from the LA-based photographer can be found on her blog, or you can follow Sylvie Blum on Twitter.

What a cool coincidence to find her Big Cats Gallery – and the image below – on the day that Lion is released! Here’s her artsy behind the scenes video from the Big Cats shoot.

Many thanks, Violet, for this posting. I’ve seen a few excerpts from Blum’s “Big Cats” before, but never any credits, so I was unable to find the source. Now, here it is, thanks to you!

Education in art, as well as sex – darned if my day isn’t complete now.
