“Through photography, Hetz explores the human body, the beauty in the ugly, and the ugliness in beauty. As his most important sense, he describes seeing since an eye disease runs in his family that might eventually cause him to lose his eyesight. “I suppose that knowing you might lose something makes it more precious to you,” Hetz explains. The book “”The Matter of Absence”” is Hetzʼs first publication. Body parts like in a peep show, caught in an action, caught in a singular moment. Seemingly familiar, and yet very random: Due to the lack of identity, due to the anonymity, it could be the high school crush, the neighbor, the priest, the ex lover, the best friend, or the online flirt. By showing very little of the surrounding, the close-ups offer a wide field of storytelling. The narrative happens rather in the head than on the photo. What leads to that particular moment becomes equally important as the moment itself. The absence of identity in times of selfies. Designer Stefano Pilati puts it like this: “”In his authenticity, Hetzʼs talent maniacally explores the moment between the photographer―as artist, witness, obsessive―and the subject. He interprets the body as a quintessential sex object through simple, domestic gestures, producing a body of work that is far removed from the spirit of “entertainment” and “staging” in current forms of social-media visualizations.”” A stunning, unique debut.

THREE THINGS: Sébastien Lifshitz’s OBSESSIVE queer photo collection @ i-D / NAKED BERLIN @ KALTBLUT/ MONSIEUR Butterfly portraits by LORD MARIPOSA

untitled-article-1468418970-body-image-1468419213

i-D: Parisian collector Sébastien Lifshitz has been building a robust and internationally-sourced photo archive since he was a teenager. His focus is on queer identity, from the art of drag to transgender metamorphosis. His collection of amateur photos is displayed for the very first time at the Rencontres d’Arles — a major festival in the south of France — under the title Sincerely Queer (Mauvais Genre, also a book). Collecting these images has been his hobby and passion alongside his films, most notably Bambi, a portrait of one of the first French transgender women, for which he won the best documentary César in 2013.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: DEFINE BEAUTY/ HIS SWEAT by MATT LAMBERT @ NOWNESS

Define Beauty: His Sweat
Matt Lambert gets under the skin of our infatuation with the bodily fluid

For the first instalment of the new series of Define Beauty, our series exploring the nuances of desire, Berlin-based director Matt Lambert delves into the sensual side of sweat. Here, the American filmmaker and photographer—known for his often-NSFW work exploring sex and intimacy—talks about his film asking: exactly what it is about our most-prevalent bodily fluid that have so many feeling weak at the knees?:

screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-7-50-35-am

“I held an open casting call via my Instagram, inviting people to share thoughts on their love of sweat. The film aims to demystify, celebrate, sensualize and add humor to sweat and the love many gay men have for it.

screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-9-05-35-am

“Sweat becomes a metaphor for love, sex, masculinity, vulnerability, excretion, exhaustion and intimacy”
“It’s a film about sweat, but we rarely refer to the sweat itself. It’s much more about its essence and what it represents. Sweat becomes a metaphor for love, sex, masculinity, vulnerability, excretion, exhaustion and intimacy.”

SISSYDUDE LOVES: BBC PLAY OF THE MONTH: THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY (1976)

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 10.49.25 PM

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 10.51.47 PM

WIKIPEDIA: The Picture of Dorian Gray is a 1976 BBC video-taped production which formed part of the Play of the Month anthology series. It stars Peter Firth, Jeremy Brett, and John Gielgud. A 100-minute adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray by John Osborne, it was first broadcast on 19 September 1976. This production was a critical success at the time of its first screening. In 2009 The Times called it the “most Wildean” adaptation of the novel, boasting “perhaps the best Dorian” and mentioning that John Gielgud “steals the show, having of course been given the most beguiling lines by Wilde”.

jb_10

This version accentuates the gay subtext of Wilde’s novel more than other versions; e.g. when Dorian wants Alan’s help in the disposal of Basil’s body, it is strongly suggested that the two had a sexual relationship in the past and when Dorian’s seduction attempt fails, he apparently threatens to expose Alan as a homosexual. In the novel and other adaptations the precise nature of Dorian’s hold over Alan is mostly left to the imagination of the reader or viewer, respectively.
