In Black Book, Robert Mapplethorpe presents an astonishing photographic study of black men today. In their diversity, impact, subtlety, technical virtuosity, erotic appeal, and deep humanity, these photographs constitute a stunning celebration of the contemporary black male.

I love Enric Macià photography. He is great photographer and my friend. Today starts his exhibition „Metamorphosis animal” in Spain.
Author about photos: „Metamorphosis animal” comes from fear of finding oneself, the obligation to be like society wants us to be, how are we really? One of the best ways that exist to rediscover what we were, is undressing in front a mirror, and the result will be a personal catharsis. All the fear that causes this reunion is to not like we are.
The only way I’ve been struggling to find power, is creating an army of animals and metamorphosed, to make me stronger to fight the fear of my staff reunion.
From competition website:
Erotic and Architecture are not two words often used together. That does not mean they should not be, so we welcome you to change your usual perception of space and look around yourself to find buildings, constructions, bridges and other places and spaces that arose erotic associations.
By Erotic Architecture we don’t mean only obvious suggestive forms resembling human body parts. We would like to see work presenting combinations of spatial qualities, materials, rhythms and atmospheres witch in their unique combination could be considered erotic.
