Artist Statement

Uniforms have always been the subject of fantasies. If the clothes don’t maketh the man, the clothes certainly do help reveal and acknowledge kinks, while the wearer/man remains anonymous.

Authority, power, heroism, strength, or simply the aesthetics of clothing and accessories, the enhancement of the male body, all these mixed feelings at the sight of a man in uniform awake our imagination and strata of our homoerotic cultural  unconscious.

Just a detail can arouse our excitement and desire.

The uniform and the work clothes; the regulation outfits, the sport gears, the fetishist outfits, the clothes and accessories excite the libido and imagination though the promise of masculine sex  and overflowing testosterone, hot games of domination and submission, exhibitionism and worship.

All these portraits are look to the horizon with one goal, proud of their outfit that enhances the sex act, their duty, their performance, their virility and their pride.

From athlete to soldier, from worker to businessman, from master to slave, from cowboy to sailor, all proudly display the artifices of their particular vocation, their profession, their passion, or their sexual practice, arousing the desire of the unattainable beauty of the idealized male in unifrom and as fantasy.
