"Celebrating Dionysos using Apollo's body".
I am a gay journalist/activist and author from Milan, Italy. I love photography, but I am NOT an artist and I am aware about it: I'm just a dude with a hobby. Nevertheless, I like to try and create anyway something beautiful with the very limited talent I have, as far as I can.
I am going to share here mostly, if not only, male nudes and portraits of men. (E se sei un modello di 18-30 anni con fisico atletico e non abiti troppo lontano da Milano, contattami pure senza impegno né paura, se vuoi che scattiamo assieme delle foto di nudo).
I am already publishing FACELESS male nudes under a Creative Commons license on WikiCommons, here: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Use…, but please note that HERE on DeviantArt all of my images showing a face are copyrighted. Please feel free to ask for a permission to reuse them for your art; I am pleased to see people reuse my work, provided that you are crediting me and above all that you are not going to use them to produce pornography, which I do not want. I like pornography as anybody else and I have nothing against it, but here I am trying and creating something which is erotic without being porn. This is my challenge, in fact: as erotic as possible, falling short of being porn. There is a part of "sex" in what we call human beauty, and there is a part of beauty in what we call sex, and my challenge is to demonstrate it. Beauty triggers sexual desire, and sexual desire can be beautiful in itself, whereas pornography deals with arousing the viewer, not in capturing beauty.
The models you see here are friends of mine, or allowed me to show their face because Deviant Art is a serious place, not a container of crypto-porn stuff, so please help me in showing them we can be trusted, in this community.
Thank you. Giovanni Dall'Orto.
