In this lyrical first collection from photographer Marcello Maia, the black male nude as subject is taken beyond conventional expectation and experience. Working specifically with the formal elements of composition and light, Maia's work not only dramatically displays the beauty of the male form but also challenges the existing depictions of black men as photographic subject. 46 photos.
