The reason why we started taking photographs of our closest friends was to intentionally put them in a playful and spontaneous mood to see what clo¬thes they were willing to remove.

About

The intention was to bring out of them a potential erotic energy that they didn’t think and or feel they had. We fall in love with human bodies becau­se of how fragile they are and because of their marvelous authenticity. We feel that the act of admitting to oneself in a quiet way that one can be at any moment turned on by even the boyfriends and or girlfriends of one’s closest friends is one of the most dignified expressions of the mystery of this uni­verse. Without physically making love to our subjects, it is our necessity to create a desire of gentle lovemaking for the spectator of our images. In each one of us there is a space which is timeless; a space that can allow us at any moment to completely fall in love with whatever object or being we have in front of us.

           This is a space we either deny ourselves through predictable concept of what is right and what is wrong. So often we cover up these feelings of wan­ting to make love in the gentlest way possible with a perfect stranger and or a close friend. Reconnecting with our inner dreamy timelessness can be a way of fighting against

           We find ourselves disgusted by women who express their sense of femi­ninity with a maniacal and vulgar precision. Our muses are women with a profound sense of eroticism void of excessive jewelry and make up and flashy product placement. We adore when a woman wears a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, and without uncomfortable heels. We are fascinated by the duality of the human being. Lately, humans have lost the habit and or pleasure of observing. Our photographs need to express a sort of nostalgia of getting lost in others without the need to constantly cover everything up with the simple gesture of obsessively controlling cellular telephones. It saddens us that seduction keeps becoming more and more vulgar. We feel that fashion is a lovely source of inspiration, thou­gh we personally prefer to photograph friends. Models have the habit or necessity to create predictable machine like poses which make us feel uncomfortable. Perhaps this all has to do with dedicating too much time on our cell phones. Perhaps it could help to give oneself the time and space to observe whatever we have in front of us for the sake of allowing ourselves to fall completely in love in any moment of life. Float.
