Banalities of travel


Fleshbot calls this series of photos by Richard Renaldi of him and his partner in various hotel rooms around the world photos "that juxtaposes themes of transience and stability in photographs that are as notable for their formal qualities as for their intimacy and emotional resonance."

I think instead that they juxtapose themes of privilege and vacuity to show just how boring mainstream gay culture is.


"What should we do now?"

"Ummm, we've already fucked..."

"Wanna go back to Zara?"

"vacuity" is a way hot word. There are certain words when employed, just.. man. =)

Renaldi’s work is so narcissistic. But then again, most queer work seems to be. Yawn. The production of the self consciously “un-arty” snapshot genre works well in AA Bronson’s work…especially in “Negative Thoughts”.

There is a certain sterility there which is quite appealing. That is, in the shots which are not obviously staged.
