"Pain is important" is the sixth book by azt and collects more than 300 self-portraits from 2006 to 2010.

From the preface by Peter Weiermair:

"Formally, AZT breaks new ground with this book as he now, not merely directs the dialog of images and the precisely calculated sequence, but also, superimposes and thus boosts its inherent obsessive character. His oeuvre's sole protagonist, subject as well as object, is AZT himself. With this book, he closes the most difficult stage in a painful process of searching for an identity that has lasted several years. (...) This staged otherness is part of the overall stance of an artist who has created some of the most exciting, most irritating images in the field of the contemporary portrayal of the male nude."


The book includes explicit nude contents suggested for an adult (18+) audience.

Language: english

Acerca del autor

azt Italy
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.
