We can’t stop ogling Brooklyn-based photographer Travis Chantar’s latest photo series Flowers.

For the series, Chantar, who identifies as queer, adorns beautiful naked men with strategically placed flowers covering their modesty.

In his artist’s statement, he writes:

Flowers are a precious reminder of fleeting, young beauty. I love the idea of freezing the wild, perfect frailty of life in its prime. It would seem a waste if I failed to notice moments of bloom.
