PoP SpotlighT - TORSO by rSEANd PHOTOGRAPHY

TORSO by rSEANd PHOTOGRAPHY

The human form is natures’ canvas. It is a moving, breathing, functional work of art that has been reproduced in paintings, sculpture and photos. For many artists, it is the preferred subject, yet despite the abundance of work depicting it, the nude form still produces mixed emotions in those that view it. There are those who would seek to cover it up, but there is nothing more natural than nakedness, for it is the way each of us is brought into this world.

TORSO is a collection of photos depicting the nude male, which is arguably the most taboo in the genre. Full frontal male nudity is still censored in most films and even some gallery exhibitions. This book does not only depict the form, but also the function of the male body and contains images that some might view as sexually explicit. It marks the first time some of these images have been publicly displayed.
