VIVOS is a book of naked artistic photographs, product of a year’s work of the Venezuelan photographers Richard Torres and Jogreg Henriquez.
This project comes as a desire to further develop the work they have done under “Dick & Joe Photography” brand for more than five years.
The idea: to find the beauty in every face and every body that decides photographed with them.
VIVOS features more than 50 photographs and 35 models. The goal with each of them was not only get their best faces and angles, to create a beautiful image.
The intention was also to highlight the diversity inherent in every human being who is first expressed through their physigonomy, but then, also evident in their preferences and context.
As the respect for diversity one of the fundamental values that govern this work, the book presents an extensive and varied characters and situations related to the ways in which human beings live their sexuality range.
They are images with different levels of sensuality and eroticism, fantasy and even perversion. This means that, the observer, may be impressed with an image, and represented with another.
In short, this is a book about love, relationships and the necessary understanding of the various ways in which love and passion is manifested.
And most important: it is an applause to the courage, the courage to be proud of who you are, without fear of discrimination.
