“Expose Love,” a new photographic collection by Anthony Timiraos, captures the affection and passion between male couples in classical nude poses. Over the past four years, Timiraos has photographed almost 100 men and has developed close relationships with many of them. In his book, he aims to showcase the love and emotional connection between the models and to highlight the importance of equality.
Just a few decades ago, displaying affection between two men in public was not widely accepted, and such a book would have likely been considered pornography. However, Timiraos is hopeful that his collection, now more easily available but still restricted in many places, will evoke feelings of love and understanding in viewers.
Timiraos emphasizes that while progress has been made in LGBTQ+ advocacy and rights, the fight for equality is not over. Censorship and acceptance continue to be struggles for many people in various communities around the world. He encourages all to never forget the history of the LGBTQ+ movement and to always support the fight for civil rights.
