The most sensual images are often the ones that don’t give it all away. Their erotic quality is in every line of the body from a slender neck to the roller-coaster curve at the small of the back. Their smoulder comes from a look in the eyes or the strands of messy hair that fall across the face in a partial curtain of beautiful obscurity. In grainy black and white, Lev Efimov’s shoot of model Katya has all of those things. Click the thumbnails for full pictures: Black lace and bare skin are the only styling required when the subject is wrapped in unrepentant sexuality and confined to the heated climate of the bedroom. With no other creative team credited, it’s a case of keeping an intimate relationship between model and camera, and it’s the intimacy that’s what makes Efimov’s shoot so strong. Photographed for issue 14 of Bambi Magazine (bambimagazine.com), you can see the full shoot at the gallery.
