TAKE MY BODY is based on the deconstruction of the classical model of the nude male, graceful bodies, bald or hairless. It is an exercise in self-exploration, dark, animalistic, primary.
The man is not defined as being beautiful, refined or powerful, but summarized to his instinctual desires and the basic human need for survival.
It shares the physical intimacy and exposure of the dark that remains within the body.
It aims to inspire thoughts about ourselves and about the vulnerability of the artist relatively to each viewer and question the relationship we have with the body, how we relate to our intimacy.
The images remove from the body the emotional and stereotypical load of the “glamour” that it is subject. They  want to contribute to the acceptance of the male body as it is.
TAKE MY BODY intends to meet the humans who wonder about the outward beauty of the body. They can find in these images the acceptance of their own body and the emotions it arouses or that lie within.
