Being one of the most important male nude photographers of Italy, Tony Patrioli portrayed and documented the last season of a Mediterranean culture which is now lost. This book presents his iconic photographs of young men from the Mediterranean. A stunning visual journey into a lost realm of eroticism!
Photographer Tony (Antonio) Patrioli was born in 1941 in Manerbio (Brescia). He lives in Milan.
Patrioli portrayed and documented the last season of a Mediterranean culture which is now lost. Due to the advent of the “sexual revolution” young (often heterosexual) men were willingly available for homoerotic photo shoots. They were often from South Italy, visibly amused by the narcissistic game proposed by the photographer and eager to exhibit a sexual desirability that coincided with the mentality of that time.
