East Village Boys

People have often asked me to shoot them nude, but for the first time, I asked someone to pose nude for me. For this project I pushed away many of my comfort zones in order to tap into the emotions needed to make it a success. Concentrating on the fragility and beauty of the model, this shoot felt very personal because it was all about my ability to make Alex feel comfortable in front of me. His vulnerability and desire to collaborate allowed me to tap into the spontaneity of photography, which I now realize is the most satisfying place to be.
