NSFW – “IL ADORE” by Mikko Rasila.

Some words by photographer Mikko:

“My photographic series titled Il Adore (started 2009, ongoing) is a personal journey into self, new masculinity, intimacy and sexuality, sex and gender and queer representation. I try to portray how it feels to be seen, loved, accepted or rejected and left alone in the masculine world. 

The images in the series are intense black and white male nude studies that detach their subject from the traditional imagery of masculinity and how men are most often portrayed. I wanted to create an intimate space around and inside the photographs that is sexual without being explicit. Lingering and sensual and sometimes suggestive. The dark, intense images and the characters in them are almost abstract mental landscapes that interact with each other as well as with their viewer.

My work has been shown in numerous galleries and museums in Europe and Russia. My photography series has been featured in Vogue Italia, shortlisted at the Hyères International photography festival (France) and Kyotographie Kyoto International Photography Festival (Japan) and earlier this year I had a private photography exhibition at the Consulate General of Finland Embassy Residence in Bel Air Los Angeles and now I’m looking for a place to show my work later this year”.
