About this photograph:

The Lonely Project, by photographer Ricardo Rico, was my first experience modeling for a professional photographer. I had never been in a photoshoot before — clothed or naked. Since then, I’ve never been able to feel really comfortable when shooting clothed.

“‘The Lonely Project’ intends to show male beauty in an intimate way. With a natural but bold touch, the language of loneliness exerts an intrinsic strength and reveals all its depth. It shows that the beauty of male intimacy is present in everyday life and that it should be portrayed just as well as female beauty. It is an indirect way of saying ‘I am here’, not to transgress but to transpose. I believe that in this moment of introspection, the true self emerges and nudity is just a detail before a naked soul in itself.” – Ricardo Rico.

I like the overall intimacy and feeling of this work. It feels very sensual, as if this model were caught in the middle of measuring himself. The lighting is also good, casting wonderful contrasting shadows. One suggestion, it appears to be blurred along the right edge, and on the bottom left-hand corner. The subject is well focused, but the outer edge blurring distracts me. It gives a hasty impression, detracting from the otherwise intimate moment. Other than that, it is well composed. I especially like the expression on the model, one that, again, conveys a strong sense of intimacy and sensuality. Overall, a good composition!

Very erotic and very sensual.  His pose allows you to capture the play of his muscles.  I like how foot shows the muscles of his calf to flow, sensually into his thighs as it spills into the firm, desirable curve of his buttock to be met by his torso, so nicely stretch to show us his stomach and chest.  It is as if the muscles of his body flow into each other.  Can a viewer be blamed for wanting to close the door.  Then, quickly open it a put a Do Not Disturbed sign on the door handle as it closes once more.
