CULTUREEDIT Gallery is pleased to announce an online exhibition of photography by Luis Venegas coinciding with the release of the latest issues of The Intim Mates News Paper.
The Intim Mates News Paper is an ongoing visual publication designed, edited and independently published by Luis Venegas featuring photographic portfolios taken in intimate collaboration between photographers and male models, portraying a space and freedom in print where nudity is celebrated. In a time of increased censorships and online platforms, the publication reintroduces the role of printed matter in the art of nudity. The two most recent issues of Intim Mates are photographed by Luis Venegas and Trevor Stones.
The exhibition includes 49 photographs of 8 male models that Venegas has shot recently for the 3rd issue.Utilizing a the same 35 mm camera that he as used for the past 20 years, Venegas style captures moments of unrestraint and spontaneous intimacy.
