If there is a superstar in world of glamour and art modeling, then it is most certainly Markéta Bělonohá. Hailing from the Czech Republic, she has posed for countless photographers and has been the visual centerpiece for numerous website's, books, and magazines throughout her modeling career. She is not only beautiful beyond words, she is one of those rare and wonderful creatures who literally light the page on fire. Calling her photogenic is like calling the the Amazon River a flowing body of water.

Petter Hegre has made a name for himself in crafting huge bodies of work around a single subject (see his books "Luba" and "My Wife") and if anyone was up to the task of capturing the magical qualities of Markéta it was certainly him. Both Petter and Markéta have succeeded in crafting a flawless collection of nudes here. Petter's photography is impeccable and his level of creativity and style is paramount. Every picture is composed perfectly and rendered in thrilling, vibrant color, In fact, the only flaw in this massive body of work, is that it's almost too perfect - there is little sense of spontaneity. Nothing seems accidental. But even with this shortcoming, if it could be called that, "Markéta" is 127 pages of pure bliss that none of her fans will want to miss.

Marketa Belonoha probably is the best nude model in the world and Petter Hegre knows like no one else how to draw the immense beauty of what should be called the most beautiful thing in excistance.
However this book is not this ultimate work in nude photography that it could have been.
Very nice but nothing more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book you must have! 8 July 2010
By N. Homeyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful. It's a book you won't find tedious even though the same girl appears on all of the photographs. You see her in various places and situations, for the most part with all of her clothes off, but with a beautiful smile on her mouth. You may have seen Hegre's photos on the internet on [...], and they are something to look at. But still, having a collection of Hegre's photos of Marketa in a book which you are holding in your own hands is something completely different.
So, if I am to be concise (and a bit mathematical :) :
Gorgeous model + one of the greatest contemporary photographers = A book you must have!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, just lovely 22 Oct. 2008
By wiredweird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Hegre has a knack for making the most of a lovely young model, and Markéta ranks high in that category. These pictures show a gorgeous woman happy and playful sharing her attractiveness with the camera. Somehow, she even seems to reach through the lens and address the book's reader directly.

Although lingerie occasionally adorns Markéta, most of the imagery shows Markéta wearing only herself. Whether indoors or out, in studio or boudoir, wet or wild, she wears it well. One slightly unusual feature of this charming young lady kept attracting my attention: she's an all-over blonde, so her one patch of body hair doesn't contrast against her uniform tan very much at all. Still, it clothes her almost as well as a darker bush would. As a result some pictures almost seem to have had genital details airbrushed out. That hasn't happened, of course, it's just her natural coverage at work, but it presents an ongoing surprise throughout this collection.

This, like other of Hegre's collections, offers a simple tribute to physical beauty. That's easy to like, but misses opportunities for deeper exploration of mood, composition, or erotic potential. These photos are lovely, but that's all - just lovely.

she is easily one of the most beautiful women in the world, a fantastic book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Stun to my senses 11 Oct. 2007
By Matthew T. Aten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Marketa is the most astonishing woman I've ever seen. Surely seeing her would mean one of two things.... I've died and am in fact seeing a celestial being or I'm about to go blind and this will be my last vision. either would be fine as Petter Hegre has captured the most naturally beautiful woman in the most tasteful and fun ways.

It is hard to find fault with with the photos in this book. Marketa is a very beautiful European model and Hegre is a outstanding photographer. How can you go wrong with a combination like this?
