I have a friend who some time ago liked men and the idea of transvestism, nothing weird in that. But now he has become and advocate of “heaven righteousness” and self proclaimed moral superiority and consider the idea of marriage between people of the same sex something outrageous.
I can’t understand his change of mind, I seriously hope he will have find his true self, that will be amazing.But to find his center never give him the right to oppose to the rights and pursuit for happiness of other human beings.
My fear is that he is denying his true self and like a Victorian caricature he is disguising his needs and true identity looking for the acceptance of the congregation to which he belongs now. That will be horrible, to live a lie and hide nature behind some imposed and prejudicial ideas.
Let’s hope that’s not the case, anyway I can only hope he is truly happy now.
That’s the introduction to this photographs taken some time ago. Is a series constructed from that intellectually and philosophically aberrant concept of SIN. The worst of human creations, the most bizarre of the control mechanisms created for authoritarian small groups of people who oppresses and exploit other human beings.
Even now, sin is a tool for pervert human nature and mutilate human beings.
It’s so bizarre and arbitrary that between the original deadly sins was included Tristitia (sorrow/despair/despondency).
The models of the photographs are my brother and me. The images are a homage to Nan Goldin and her amazing work. Are a visual manifestation of my sadness about how societies force us to build and wear masks, about how many human beings have to suffer in silence behind the “right” customs and behavior of their cultures.
Was taken using a UV light tube and white make up and underwear.
