Our gallery this week comes from Sergey Goncharov and features most of his lovely models from his site Fantastic Nude Girls in Nature. This particular series is a tribute to the Ukranian holiday, Ivana Kupala, which celebrates magic, fertility, and cleansing.
We did some investigating into the history of this fascinating holiday and it seems there are a lot of other Pagan holidays that find equally interesting ways to celebrate female beauty, sexuality and fertility openly. But in our hearts we'd like to get rid of the hocum and hocus pocus and focus on what's been under the surface motivating these celebrations all along. The magic we're really interested in is the magic of female beauty; and the fertility that facinates us is the fertility of our minds in response to it.
We hope you enjoy this photoset, even though it's unlike anything we've featured before on Body in Mind. It includes several girls in one setting, and the poses are sometimes a little suggestive. But it's all in good spirits. Even if it scares you a bit, take a leap with us. You'll love it.
Jump through the fire, and be cleansed.
