Martin Morales Castillo - Mantenimiento
"Mantenimiento", the title of this "domestic male and nude female" series could be translated in "housework". Martin Morales Castillo is South American (born in 1976), living in Argentina, and doing apparently naturalistic pictures, in fact strangely "scenographized" and strongly fascinating. It's like we are here, with them, and the intimacy of the situation (the woman naked but being unaware that anyone looks at her, and this man, the photographer actually, doing these housework tasks) provides weird images. I only selected some of the whole set. I added two others (in the bathroom, he peeing on her on one of them) cos' they complete in a still weirder sense the series. The whole series on his flickr blog here and another site there.
