For as much time as we spend looking at ourselves in the mirror (and looking at others in person, in photographs, and in the movies) we spend very little time actually seeing. As a gay man, I have always been fascinated by the male body. But unlike many other photographers, my fascination is not with the “perfect” body. Rather, my fascination is with the incredible diversity and mystery of this surface within which we live.
Bodyscapes is an exploration of the male body, perhaps much as the Lilliputians might have explored a naked Gulliver. It is an exploration that brings us to familiar places, and to locations that wait to be identified. It is an exploration that challenges our imaginations, and that calls on us to see anew.
