8 – by Cobalto

Cobalto is the nickname of an Italian photographer who prefers to keep work and leisure in separate identities. Rods and I had a quiet afternoon photo session with him in a nicely furnished Airbnb apartment he rented for his stay in São Paulo, where he shot several models each day.

We ended up with a large amount of beautiful, affectionate photographs, and finally decided to publish them all in the project, in two parts.

Worthy of note: it was during this photo session, on January 21st, 2016, that it occurred to me for the first time to take my research and performance on nude modeling and make it a full-fledged project of my own. 100 NUDE Shoots (of Hugo) was launched the following month.
