Along my path producing 100 NUDE Shoots, I have approached or been approached by visual artists whose work relates to the various subjects of my own work with the project, and I’ve been glad to be able to collaborate with them. Although the fruitful results of these collaborations are not photoshoots per se (and are not counting towards the 100 shoots objective), I am going to start publishing them here for the sake of furthering this relevant artistic production about nudity on varied kinds of media and forms of art. Starting this series, here’s the record of my collaboration with artist Fabio Lopes‘ Cotidiano Insólito performance.
“Cotidiano Insólito is a performance in which I am willing to go anywhere proposed by the participant, who will pose for me at that place keeping in mind what would be unusual for him or her in their daily lives. The drawings are made by hand during the performance and post-production is made later on the computer. The only records are the drawings and a photo of the space where the performance took place. The finished drawings are not only records but also one of the consequences of this performance.” — Fabio Lopes
“Alas, we are all somewhat mad. If one doesn’t capture another’s point of madness, he may be scared; but as for me, I’m glad to realize that somebody’s point of madness is the source of his or her charm.” — Deleuze
