Diego Diaz Marin: Señorito Italiano.

December 16, 2012
Although having been raised quite Catholic during my childhood and early adolescence, I couldn’t recite a Hail Mary now if my life depended on it. But my current anti-Church/anti-organised religion stance notwithstanding, I do have a certain soft-spot for religious iconography, esp. where usage is naughtily blasphemous. As the great surrealist filmmaker Luis Buñuel once said, “Sex without religion is like cooking an egg without salt”…

And this latest shoot from Spanish photographer Diego Diaz Marin entitled Señorito Italiano featuring Alberto Ciottoli, brings the conventionally antonymous spheres of crude and creed together in a representation of one man struggling with the various pressures of tradition, religion and sexuality.

Marin has also shot Just Cavalli’s SS11 underwear campaign, keep an eye on his homepage for further updates, or to check out more of his work.
