Acerca del libro
"oh sinner man" is azt's first solo book.
It's a collection of the most intriguing and meaningful pictures from the same title series made in 2007 whilst living in London and never printed before.
"oh sinner man" is a journey through images to discover the times and spaces of death, or maybe just a contemporary memento mori.
It presents many of the author's recurring themes such as writings, body, water, death, sky, bedrooms, so maybe it's just a book about obsessions.
"oh sinner man" is the first step of a publishing project presenting a series of books by azt that will be launched during 2010 and 2011.
azt is a gay, HIV+, italian artist. Born in 1974, he lives and works in Bologna. His interest for photography made him first develop the most narrative aspects of the medium. From 2007 he dedicates almost exclusively to portray naked men with the many male nudes series. His research starts with the statement of difference as human inestimable value and explores the most personal and erotic aspects of his subjects. Through their physical nudity, he unveils a male universe that strongly differs from rules and stereotypes imposed by fashion and mass culture. Bypassing cultural superstructures, he displays an image of personalized, intimate and strongly politicized masculinity. He produced many artist books and published his works in contemporary art magazines and catalogs. He exhibited in museums, private galleries and non-profit spaces in Europe and United States. His works are included in important european and international art collections.
