Book (H)OMBRES by Arnoldas Kubilius

Jun 27, 2020 - Arnoldas Kubilius

This post is about something personal.

Shadows on male forms, male forms in shadows — these are the subjects of my first photo book (H)OMBRES that I have released this month.

The smooth metallic hard-cover book, which combines dreamy images of bodies drowning in luscious colours with raw, carnal close-ups (51 photographs in total), has been co-created by the Netherlands-based British designer Jake Noakes.

(H)OMBRES also features an insightful essay by the American photographer Connie Imboden who has herself spent half a century investigating, as she herself puts it, the raw seduction of flesh. The book has been published with the support of the Ministry of Culture of Luxembourg. It’s available at my shop.
