Frank1377 is a photographic and publishing (zine) project, created to underline the different approach to the sex of the man in comparison with the woman.
The man unties his sexual instinct from the love and from the mind much more than the woman (this is an ancestral and biological heredity: since the beginning, males have been the ones to 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 word are 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.
