Let me imagine the colour of your eyes ?


Sweet Sweat




The Photographic Art of Cosidetto



I am not sure these pics are legal anymore...

Where is the border between innocence and perversity ? Between happiness and sickness ?

I know it, soon, in our close future, in our societies, it will be forbidden and illegal to post a candid pic of a teen boy (or girl)...

Because just enjoying such a pic will be considered as the peak of perversity and sickness...

Nobody should look at teen boys THAT way.... Too much sick overtones in such a gaze....

Actually, it would be safer to censor and forbid the circulation of pics on social networks...

Blogs should be forbiddent...

Expressing feelings, thoughts, ideas, desires, memories should be considered as terrorist threats against political correctness...

Admiring beauty, ever innocent beauty, is strictly forbidden from now on !

There is no space for desire when nothing is hidden....

The Photographic Art of Duval


I guess this boy was a model in a Greek sculptor's workshop....

I was the model for all the "Doryphore" statues currently exhibited in our Art Museums...

A poem without words....

Memories


"Il est passé, le temps des regrets, des regrets des occasions manquées...
Il est passé, le temps des espoirs, des espoirs de jours meilleurs...
Il est passé, le temps du silence et des tourments solitaires...
Il est passé, le temps des regards détournés, des désirs refoulés...
ll est passé, le temps de nos adolescences, où tous les possibles étaient à inventer,

Il est venu, le temps de la maturité, le temps des nouveaux espoirs..."

Eraste de Saint-Amant, Poèmes garçonniers, 2007.

Young Male Body


Ragazzi di Napoli


Tadzio according to the photographer Sinal...


There is an intemporal beauty in this boy's face, in this portrait, in this photograph...
I don't know who this boy is... What he was thinking about... Was he dreaming ? Remembering something ? Looking at something, at someone ?

Who knows...

But this portrait mirrors a soul as well as a beautiful face...

There is something almost spiritual in this face, in this portrait...

Fascinating pic...

Swimming Pool


"Jeunesse en fleurs, tu es le printemps de la vie,
Et ton corps est une sculpture de chair et de lumière
Qui éveille la mémoire de tous les garçons chantés
Par les couleurs des peintres comme par les mots des poètes...

Quintessence de beauté, perfection d'une jeune masculinité,
Page blanche où pourraient s'écrire mille histoires de désir,
De désir et d'amour, dans un regard éphémère, croisé, échangé,
Un jour ensoleillé, lorsque je t'ai rencontré..."

Eraste de Saint-Amant, Poèmes garçonniers, 2012.

The five important writers who are the subject of this book sometimes frequented the same places, knew the same people and fell for the same types of partner.

With
Marcel Proust, we enter the salons, but also the houses of male prostitution of the Belle Époque.

Pierre Loti, fascinated by distant travel, leads us to a mythical Orient where unusual loves flourish. Renaud Icard, trapped between conjugal life and a desire for men, attempts to unravel for us the roots of his mad passion.

With habitual panache,
Roger Peyrefitte evokes his ‘special friendships’, which earned him as many admirers as detractors.

Jean Genet sketches in unambiguous strokes virile loves between men who were not complete villains.

The important iconography contained in this new work helps to place these five writers in their respective worlds and allows us to penetrate their intimacy, to see who they were and to discover what right-thinking society has too often sought to conceal.

Selfies


Anthropologists and sociologists of the XXIId century AD and later will certainly rely on selfies to study the daily life of late teen boys in the XXIst c. They will have access to all the codes of their self-perception and presentation, of their clothing styles, of the social networks they shared their selfies with...  These primary sources could provide scholars with unique evidence about the social codes ruling intimacy, about gender, seduction and self-affirmation....
