It is like weâ€™re looking at the hand of Michelangeloâ€™s “David.” Marco di Gioiaâ€™s simple yet unsettling photo shown above is beautifully composed. Some of his images seem like they were dipped in Peter Witkinâ€™s sepia and grain bucket. Free of props, Gioia takes pictures of the human body, naked and in darkness, an intimate study of identity and sexuality.
