League of Gentlemen

IMG_7884-1-2A while ago I got in touch with a guy who became interested in going through the process of conversations that leads to the photos in my main project. After some chats he told me that apart from the 9-5 routine from his regular job he was working extra hours as an escort boy. He also told me that, after pinpointing some shortcomings in that business in the part of the state he lived, he decided to offer a different kind of service for top-notch customers. So he started a kind of selected group and was working on the creation of a business brand, logo and all. A couple weeks ago I was told they´d all be in São Paulo for a photo session to produce images for their website. We agreed that I´d visit them after their session was over so I could photograph him and the boys for my Intimate Landscapes project. This is the first image I´m posting from that night. Many more are coming.

Um tempo atrás eu fiz contato com um rapaz que ficou interessado em encarar o processo de conversas que leva às fotos no meu projeto principal. Depois de umas conversas ele me contou que, em paralelo à rotina do trabalho regular, ele ainda trabalhava como garoto de programa. Ele também me contou que, depois de identificar algumas deficiências no serviço que era oferecido na região onde vive, decidiu oferecer um tipo diferente de serviço a clientes mas exigentes. Então ele começou uma espécie de grupo seleto, e estava no processo de estabelecer uma marca, um logotipo etc. Umas semanas atrás soube que estariam todos em São Paulo pra uma sessão de fotos pro site deles. Combinamos de que eu faria uma visita depois da sessão acabar, pra que pudesse fotografá-los pra meu projeto Intimate Landscapes (Paisagens Íntimas). Essa é a primeira imagem que posto daquela noite. Muitas outras a caminho.
