Facing, Vol. 1 - Zine
For over a decade, Eric Grigs has photographed men who responded to ads for modeling or who were referred by other artists and models. This is the first collection of works which are the product of dozens of shooting sessions in three different studio spaces in the Boston area. Using close-up portraits in profile as a starting point, these images are edited for cohesion but presented with minimal retouching to show the beauty found in the details of the male face and body — whether freckled, wrinkled, and blemished skin or intricate hair patterns. Each photograph documents how natural light illuminates the uniqueness of his shape at the fleeting moment in time when the exposure was made.
