Frank1377





"Frank1377 is a photographic and publishing (zine) project, created to underline the different approach to sex by man compared to woman. 

Man unties his sexual instinct from love and from mind much more than woman (this is an ancestral and biological heredity: since the beginning, males have been the ones who provide continuity to the species by spreading their semen). 





 
The project examines this difference by observing it through the lens of male homosexuality, where instinctual sex is taken to the extreme as it gets freed from the boundaries imposed by society.










By joining a popular gay web community under the name “frank1377”, the doors to this parallel world opened. 

The dialogues with another member are used as caption for the fanzine, while the images in the booklet are inspired to the profile pictures commonly used in the website."
