You'll Love Her A Ton: Rebecca Tun
You'll Love Her A Ton: Rebecca Tun
How did you get started modeling?
It started with life modeling for art classes at university. From there I got curious about photographic art nude modeling and before I knew it I had lots of offers of paid work, so I became professional quite suddenly. I realized that the freelance art modeling world was a 'thing' that I'd become a part of and it became one of my passions.
What excites you about modeling?
Visual imagery has always excited me. With modeling I get to be creative in a way that engages my whole body and my emotions. I guess my whole life has been a struggle between being an intellectually-driven, dry, logical academic, and being a rebellious, sensuous, emotionally driven creative - and modeling has given me a way of releasing that latter half of myself. I also love traveling and meeting so many different kinds of people from different walks of life. My brain is like a sponge and I've grown up so much in such a short space a time.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I honestly don't have a favourite type of outfit. Whatever garments and surroundings I find myself in I try to design myself to tell the most effective story given the context, and I get such a surge of joy from being given new challenges - it's like being given a gorgeous new set of paints and paintbrushes. If I have to choose a favourite, I must say I feel at my most free and natural when I'm not wearing anything. Then again, corsets, heels and stockings are excitingly transforming, and I do have a mild obsession with hats. Thin fabrics, wet things, ropes, ultra-feminine or ultra-masculine props are also inspiring.
What are your least favorites?
I've never found myself modeling in anything I don't like, but I think any kind of cheesy, cute get-up like a nurse costume, or just an apron, would leave me quite uninspired. I would give any outfit a go, but I've been told that my face is extremely 'conscious' and as such I'm best suited to looks that are more intense or emotional!
What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?
I started at the classic art nude end of things, and have been progressing towards erotica as this seems to be what best suits my temperament and emotional repertoire. My photography work and my modeling work influence each other a lot and in both I've become obsessed with the challenge of trying to express sexual emotions in a way which is intensely moving to women and men alike. This means concentrating on the effects of texture, movement, temperature and story as well as visual explicitness. This something I don't want to rush into, and I've been doing a lot of research into different types of pornography and erotica. When I finish my degree in several months' time this is something I'm going to explore seriously.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
Photography, as I've mentioned. Modeling was what introduced me to the world of model photography, and the first girls I collaborated with were Iveta Niklova, Ivory Flame, Madame Bink, Kayt Webster-Brown, Ulorin Vex, Ella Rose and Roswell Ivory, all of whose work I had admired as a fellow model. I enjoy painting and drawing too but I think I've realized the way forward for me is digital art. Watch this space!
What kind of music do you like?
I'm not very good at liking music.
What do you like to do for fun?
I'm a geek. Philosophy and linguistics are my occupations. Art and love take up the rest of my time...which isn't much. I'm at Cambridge.
