In The Company Of Men

Having stumbled upon the Tumblr page of the young Swiss photographer Alexandre Haefeli, we found ourselves immediately hypnotised by his crisp yet highly romantic visual language.

“Torn between romanticism and open sexuality, between suggestion and revelation, the spectator is invited to look, to imagine and to desire.”The following photos form part of a series taken for Haefeli’s Bachelor graduation project – entitled ‘The Company of Men’ – which explores of “the multiple facets of the representation of eroticism and nudity of the male, often only superficially presented and highly codified.” Haefeli continues, “Progressing from image to image, a sense of intimacy and sensuality evolves between these portrayed bodies and echoes the homo-eroticism closely associated with the iconic representations of the male figure. Torn between romanticism and open sexuality, between suggestion and revelation, the spectator is invited to look, to imagine and to desire.”
