Model Egypt Selinda
urban magazines this
month: the new men's mag Aeon and Smooth. I have
to say, I was impressed with her photos and
this little video clip of her
(watch the upper thighs as she backs up toward
the cyc). This woman has a beautiful face and
body. It will be interesting to see what path
she takes in the business... All the best to
Also, Ms. Selinda is Latina and Egyptian.

As some of you know, I did a feature
on model Brittney Leigh Glaze in July 2011
that got a very good reception. Since that time,
has managed to
become a Top 10 Maxim Hometown Hottie and be
featured in the latest issue of Maxim as well
their 2012 Calendar. Not too shabby... Well, I'm
counting on her to be selected as number one.
Brittney did a brief interview with me for this
blog post to update us on her latest adventures.
How did you initially get involved with the
Maxim Hometown Hotties competition?
got involved by applying for the contest as a joke
thinking there was no way of me getting top
How many competitors were there in total that
the final 10 were chosen from?
thousands of entrys then they narrowed it down to top
100 then down to top 10.
Has being affiliated with Maxim changed
anything in terms of your modeling career?
has changed some. People have noticed me a little
more and in my hometown I'm a local celeberity. I've
also received a lot more job
That's gotta be nice. How do you feel about
your chances of being chosen as number one?
Well I got to
hang out with the top ten hotties for a week. All of
them are gorgeous and very awesome chicks so it's
gonna be tough to pick a #1...
I did a feature on you in July 2011 that
received a lot of attention. My blog generally
features curvier models and has a largely ethnic fan
base. Have you found that being more voluptuous
broadens your appeal, in terms of your fan
this industry they either LOVE my curves or HATE
them. I like who I am. What you see is what you get.
You'll never see me starving myself for
Wow, you don't hear that type of resolve and
self confidence much in this industry. I bet you will
be even more embraced because of loving who you are
and not changing it.
What major projects do you have coming up in the
have a few ad campaigns I'm doing.. Maxim of
course..A few catalogs..Traveling for promo's and
hopefully winning Maxim's top hottie!
Hahaha - I see you snuck in an answer to my
previous question there at the end. Congratulations
on all your success!

I've always liked Tahiry
. In fact, she was one
of my first blog posts here. She keeps her pics
at a certain level of quality and she hasn't
"gone Hollywood" and lost her curves. Here's
wishing her the best in 2012 from Indosplace.

As most of you know by now, Mal Malloy
got a new camera.
An HD camera (Canon Powershot Elph 300 HS
to be specific). Of course than means Volume 2
is presently in the works. This is the official
suggestion box post for the DVD. This post might
also contain a link to an Easter Egg
nostalgia's sake, lol. Since that's kinda gone
out of vogue, I'm keeping it very easy.
It's related to a Carol Seleme
since the location was revealed); there's also
an add'l EE added (hint: related to model whose
nickname initials are "N.N."...)

These photos of Daphne Duvernay (don't even try
finding her on Google) by fotog Marc Baptiste had a
big impact on me back in the 90s. This one of the
first times I had ever seen a black women shot with
the Sports Illustrated aesthetic. Also, Daphne looks
like she could be your girlfriend, not a "jump off."
In the beginning with urban modeling, this is how it
was. Black women were more so idealized and cast in
the true girl-next-door tradition. As you know, it's
a completely different story now.
Notice that these photos hold up over time and still
look a lot better than what we are seeing nowadays in
the urban market. Also noteworthy is the fact that
Daphne is not sporting a weave. Later on, I had the
privilege of shooting Daphne's sister, Natalie
Duvernay. I'll see if I can dig up a photo or two of
her. The resemlance is surprising.

This was one of my favorite spreads from this issue
of KING magazine
. As some of you
know, Vanessa Veasley
my blog in which she prognosticated about the
future of urban modeling, stating (in response
to whether urban modeling was dead): "There is
no industry. There are urban models, urban
mags, urban music, and events, but we have
totally lost the small industrious nature of it
we were slowly cultivating in the early
. ¶ I don't think it will ever recover.
Models are being replaced by strippers who don't
need the money and beautiful, insecure women who
shoot mags only to validate themselves. Any dude
with a camera is now a photographer; any dude
that can code has an online magazine. Music
videos have no budgets and no one watches them
anyway. It's a circus." I always thought that
was a pretty dead on assessment of the current
state of affairs in "the business." Gotta love
it: beauty and brains.

Two words: "surprisingly good." That's how I
would describe this most recent pictorial of Bria Myles
in KING Magazine
. These images
reminded me of urban modeling circa 2005, when
things were still on the upswing in the
business. I predict these photos will become
quite popular, floating around the net for some
time to come and popping up on party fliers and
the like. As final note, it's important to
remember, as RG observed, that Bria has appeared
on the cover of KING twice
The first time was in early 2007 when we first
started working together. I'm glad I got a
chance to work with one of the best who ever did
it... (All of these images are on the server in
www.indosplace/assets/... (name of file but add
"lg" instead of "sm" to the very end))
