There's that fine line of fashionable high concept artistic photoshoots and fetish photoshoots.
Oftentimes, the artist who get paid the big money to produce fashion shoots will take inspiration from the fetishist, making it even more complicated to decipher.
There are people like Helmut Newton or Maplethorpe who were some of the first to walk that line of "is this pornography or is this art" and they were celebrated for it because the lines are blurred, the grey area as vast great planes and we are just a herd of buffalo looking for water. We don't know any better or really care what the context of the photos are we're just thirty for a drink. This is that drink.
This model is named POLINA AZOROVA she is Russian, this is for Playboy Russia, so whether she is a fetish model doesn't matter, it's all art to me, and more importantly she does have a saddle on her, making it weird regardless, but I am sure you can all see yourself as cowboys willing to go for a ride.
The Photographer is named ROMA and you can see more of his work clicking his link.
