PHOTOS: These Sexy Men Are (Literally!) Trapped Together Inside A Box


Ron Amato is a New York-based photographer. Much of his work centers around issues of male beauty, aging, same-sex attraction, and body image in the gay community. His latest project, “The Box,” explores themes of self-discovery and community building.

“Most of my artwork explores issues of sexuality. The enigma of attraction has been an ongoing question,” Amato says. “With ‘The Box’ I was able to explore those themes more deeply, helping me develop a better understanding of myself as a gay man and the larger gay universe.”

The photographs will eventually be turned into a 96-page, 10-inch square coffee table book. Amato hopes to release the book in early 2017 with the help of a crowdfunding campaign.
