32 – “Spice of the Flesh”, by Julio Leão

Julio Leão is a photographer who began his career in acting, pretty much like myself.

It was even before launching 100 NUDE Shoots that I was enchanted by Rony Hernandes' work with his project "Florescer" ("Blossoming"), and asked him to collaborate. Rony is very young but has a centuries-old sensitivity — and not unlike me, he explores in his work the intersections of visual, body and performative arts. With the…Read more 27 – by Rony Hernandes

Felipe Serrano was pissed off having to apply blur to his recent endeavor — photographing his friends nude — in order to be able to safely publish the images on social networks.

I'm excited to complete the first quarter of the project, with shoot # 25 by the male form photographer Sam Devries from NYC. One of the recurrent subjects (among many others) that surround 100 NUDE Shoots is the desexualization of nudity. If the vision of nudity was a common enough occurrence — free of the…Read more 25 – by Sam Devries

I was photographed by my friend, actor, director and photographer João Hannuch, in a noir-themed, raw, emotional studio session. He instigated me to let emotions of sadness, anguish, even despair, to flow vividly from within. Posing became performing, in a way I had never experienced before. I decided to publish the shoot in two parts. The first part,…Read more 9 – by João Hannuch (part 2 of 2)

Hugo by Ale Ruaro

Portraying the intimacy of a reality not accessible to the usual conviviality, Ale Ruaro transforms human beings into timeless bodies without individuality. He uses photography to convert his personal and everyday experiences into images that bring the unconventional to normality. In a visual catharsis, he seeks a connection between his subjects and the spectator, seeking…Read more 18 – by Ale Ruaro

With the word, Frank Dezeuxis, my friend and artist extraordinaire: I have a special predilection for subverting the everyday codes of bodies in tension and relaxation. I seek to distort in order to dilate the physical presence of the common, ordinary erotic body, creating alternative ways of molding and perceiving that body. To make it…Read more 15 – by Frank Dezeuxis
