For queer photographer Kirk Lorenzo art and sex go hand in hand.
“These models are men that I hook up with via dating apps,” Lorenzo, who is currently enrolled at the School of The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, tells Queerty. “To give reference to that I thought it important to not include their faces.”
Lorenzo says keeping his model’s faces hidden isn’t about shame or humiliation but rather the anonymity that comes with casual sex.
“I don’t know much about these individuals aside from how their days been, what they look like and what they’re into sexually,” he explains. “At least in that moment. Though the majority of the time we end up becoming friends afterwards.”
Lorenzo’s work has been showcased in galleries and museums around the world, including The Institute of Contemporary Art, The Atlantic Warf Gallery, and The Fenway Center in Boston, Industry City in New York City, and NNM.Studio in Peru.
