# INTIMACY (human people)

# link: new site coming soon! Old site here

# project created in 2005 in Completely Naked site. New independent site coming soon.

This is s a project questioning the meaning of being a photographer
today and how our visions of intimacy have changed.

Perhaps nowhere so obviously as in the visual depiction of intimacy
have the boundaries between art and entertainment have eroded.
The question is: what defines intimacy in the 21st century.

Today everybody has a camera and access to the internet; images of highly personal,
intimate moments have become part of our everyday.

With Completely Naked latest project, 'INTIMACY (human people)',
the boundaries between photographer and performer/model and
reality/ fiction becomes completely blurred.

Completely Naked has been inviting selected photographers around
the world to submit images in the online galleries that, according to them,
portray intimacy.

All these photographers have in common a new approach to photography
and how they look around themselves and at their intimacy,
becoming somehow part of an un-scripted movement.

What started as a research became a huge online success and the galleries
didn't stopped growing; more than 100 photographers submitted more than 500 images!

We thought that it will be very interesting to materialize these virtual galleries
in an on-site exhibition breaking the so convenient but so fastidious unreality
of the net. Becoming a physical object, both the meaning of photography
and intimacy takes a very different reality.

The exhibition in London was from the 10th to the 30th November 2005
at Campbell Works. (see images of the opening here)

Now we want to launch an independent active website featuring the project
and consolidating it on the net…
