THE MAN OF THE HOUSE

 

 

 

The traditional representation of the naked male body consists of a legacy of muscled, powerful and arrogant men who are victorious in wars and the objects of desire of women and of other men. From ancient Greek sculpture to the covers of today’s magazines, a model of virility has been established that is associated with assuredness and self-confidence by displaying a chiselled body in public spaces.

 

The images in the series present a revision of the male nude in which we can see men in private, domestic spaces usually identified with a feminine environment. Young males with thin, sexualized and sedentary bodies. Scenographies of a man who questions himself and who is not afraid of looking as insecure as he looks daring, with the intention of offering an alternative to hegemonic masculinity.
