I am re-inventing the stylized images paying tribute to the masculine form in all sexual glory and homoeroticism.
DEFIANCE is a duet, exploring homoeroticized display of the elusive and sexualized beauty of the male form. DEFIANCE is my sojourn on blurred boundaries, challenging the status quo images of the fine art male nudes. By earning trust and confidence from my subjects, I gain access to their private sanctum, where they permit me to photograph their sexual-self, leaving nothing to my imagination
Ronald N. Tan has a great new project. He is photographing a series of sexy and edgy images showcasing men and exploring themes of sexuality with class. The men in Ronald's images hail from a culture with its own rules and taboos on sexuality. Together, they work and build trust and confidence in each other. Ronald himself grew up in an academic and conservative household. Challenging his own cultural restrictions on male nudity, he shows in his photography a liberated and lyrical capacity to capture the elusive beauty of the male form. We are all the richer for it.
