(New York, NY) February 6. 2017–For respected New York photographer Ron Amato, and professor of photography at FIT (the Fashion Institute of Technology), thinking inside "The Box" has proven to be very sexy.
"The Box," in this case, is the title of Amato's monograph of gorgeously sensual male nudes, for which he ran an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign last Fall to help cover final production and printing costs.
At 112 pages, in a smart 10”x10” format, "The Box" is currently being printed in Italy and will be available worldwide May 1, 2017.
Focused on themes of isolation, desire, conflict and empowerment, Ron Amato uses a series of boxes to create visual metaphors, echoing his development from adolescence to adulthood through over 100 color, and black and white photographs.
“Most of my artwork explores issues of sexuality. The enigma of attraction has been an ongoing question," says Amato. "With 'The Box' I was able to explore those themes more deeply, helping me develop a better understanding of myself as a gay man and the larger gay universe.”
