“‘The Lonely Project’ intends to show male beauty in an intimate way. With a natural but bold touch, the language of loneliness exerts an intrinsic strength and reveals all its depth. It shows that the beauty of male intimacy is present in everyday life and that it should be portrayed just as well as female beauty. It is an indirect way of saying ‘I am here’, not to transgress but to transpose. I believe that in this moment of introspection, the true self emerges and nudity is just a detail before a naked soul in itself.” — Ricardo Rico
