Intimacy

I find photographing two people incredibly challenging. Having two elements in the frame creates a great deal of tension compositionally speaking, something that is not an issue with individuals or groups. I am still exploring this theme and growing with each experience. Photographing men who are lovers has its own mood and energy and contrasts with using two bodies as simple elements in a composition - like stones or flowers. I have pulled together some of my work on this theme in order to consider what makes a strong image of two men together and does the context/content have to be about intimacy between them or can it be purely graphic?
