Emily displays her versatility in this mix of art nude and pinup girl photograph. She exhibits graceful athleticism by posing inside a rigid frame.
Her pose and exhibited personality strike a balance between playful and thoughtful. Her legs create a deliberate straight diagonal through one corner of the box. Her toes are pointed, continuing the line of her leg. The bold line from her toes to her hips unites the composition by anchoring the upper left corner. Her hands anchor the opposite corner, creating a sense of balance in the static, yet tension-filled design.
The stable, square-within-a-square arrangement is disrupted by her body, which zig-zags through the perpendicular and parallel arrangement. The thin lines of the frame appear imposing in contrast to the tones and shape of the body.
Warm shadows and soft highlights accentuate depth in this pinup girl photograph. The predominant tones of rose-tan and golden hues are soothing and inviting.
