Cool on the Inside; Hot on the Outside -- a Photography Exhibition by Norm Yip Exploring the Asian Male Nude
Hong Kong, Hong Kong S.A.R., October 13, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Artist Statement: "I believe that the best photography for me happens without a script. It is more like a random act of shooting and thinking on the spot, than a well planned, manufactured set of ideas. The sculptor Andy Goldsworthy demonstrated this by throwing tree branches into the air and photographing their high point of potential energy. This is how I photographed Loren Tam. One set of images was shot in my Chai Wan studio, resulted in pensive yet revealing photographs filled with tension and sensuality. The second session was in a modern studio flat in Causeway Bay. Loren emanates a disposition in character that is intriguing and semi-erotic. Unabashed and confident, he possesses an external beauty that oozes sexuality and Asian masculinity. I have selected a total of 12 photographs that demonstrate the unique chemistry of photographer and model, of voyeur and exhibitionist. Loren is cool on the inside; hot on the outside."
