Robert Siegelman takes pictures of men (mostly) whose vulnerability is intact, and often exposed. These are sexual pictures, even when not explicit. They are about relationships, both internal, and external. They are tender portraits about revealing and concealing. They depict how the models, the artist, and how people in general live in, and navigate, the everyday trauma of facing themselves and others, while looking at, and finding themselves as sexual beings.
