I don’t know about your locale, but we need a weekend warmup here. After two months of the driest weather on record, it’s finally come to an end with a week of rain. While this is great for dumb things like ‘plants’ and ‘wildlife’ and the ‘ecosystem,’ I’m not ready to give up on summer just yet. In the interim, we’ll just have to generate our heat from somewhere else.
Weekend Warmup- Matteo Montanari Nude Photography
Matteo Montanari is a 30 year old photographer who was born in Italy, who has lived and worked in London and Paris- which seems to be where all the beautiful naked ladies at. From his bio:
You may have seen his work on V Man, Another Man, L’Uomo Vogue, Le Monde, I-D, Double, Purple, Hercules, Industrie, GQ Style, Hero, Elle US, Bon Magazine and collaborates with brands like Replay, Max&Co, Diesel, Oysho, Marc’o'Polo
Despite being pretty young, that’s a pretty serious resume, but I can see why. I’m a big fan of the fact that most of his portfolio is in shades of sultry black and white, but that flipping through the shoots will occasionally turn up a photo with vibrant colours as a surprise. I mean, if you need more pleasantries than the fact that his models are all gorgeous, natural beauties with great bodies.
If you like Matteo’s work, you can check out one of his main portfolio website here. I’ve pulled out most of what I consider… the best bits, but if you’re into men’s clothing or fashion, much of his other work is masculine and angular and might be right up your alley.
