Anatomy of the Erotic Body: IL CULO
_NOW AVAILABLE Composition Books + Anatomy of the Erotic Body
2012, he began working on a series of snapshots called “eromata”, exploring exhibitionism and voyeurism at the time of selfie. Images in which the lights do not want to hide, but to reveal personalities and shapes: the result is frank, sometimes vulgar, but able to bring reality and spontaneity back. The subject, in the intentions of the project, gets rid of his anxieties placing himself without veils and complaints in front of the lens. The result is made of non-posed shots, which become the report of this relationship. The provocation, given by explicit frames, is not the only intent of the series, which also wants to give food for thought on the theme of art and male and female sensuality in society. The intent is to oppose a photographic genre in which we tend to create a patinated and idealized image of eroticism, sexuality and the imagination attached.
