Friend. Mentor. Legend. Italian photographer (and executive producer of our "Journey to Italy") Tony Patrioli left us, after a long illness. His latest photobook, RAGAZZI DEL MEDITERRANEO, published by Bruno Gmuender, is due out in November and can be pre-ordered at Amazon
is a time and place for everything", writes Gmuender. "Tony Patrioli's
time were the 60s to 80s of the 20th century and his place was Italy.
During his carreer as a photographer, he captured something long lost in
todays society: young men from the Mediterranean sea, mostly
heterosexual, who were comfortable in their bodies and willing to show
the world – even in poses that can be seen as arousing and homoerotic.
Tony Patrioli cultivated nude art, obviously inspired by the photography
of Wilhelm von Gloeden, a 19th century German photographer who is
mostly known for his pastoral nude studies of Sicilian boys. Asked why
Gloeden had such an impact on him, Patrioli answers: “Because Gloeden
was the only male nude photographer that was not banned in Italy at the
time and because his imagination in part coincided with mine. The
American bodybuilders photos seemed to me too far away from the world
and from the guys I saw around me.“ Ciao, Tony.
