Dreams MoonsPhoto is a story in the first person. It mixes photography and text to tell on a journey through a bizarre dream. It takes place within the corridors and rooms of the artist's house.
After a few years working on territories and outsiders, Yurian Quintanas Nobel set himself the challenge of photographing his closest environment.
To make this work he imposed a single rule: all the photographs had to be done within the limits of his house. From this single guideline, he began to photograph the spaces, domestic objects, and the inhabitants of this home. Though, he went further. To tell not only the concrete experience. But the transformation of all the palpable reality, into what we do not see.
The first images of this project are from 2015. And they are in total line with 2020’s new zeitgeist: the lockdowns. Produced 5 years before we started to think about how life is restricted within the space of our own homes, ‘Dream Moons’ gets a new and unexpected layer.
The project was photographed in the early 90s when Cammie Toloui was working as a stripper at the Lusty Lady Theatre in San Francisco to fund her photojournalism degree at San Francisco State University.
Customers who paid to view her naked body and watch her perform sex acts on herself were offered a discounted price if they consented to being photographed. The resulting series of black and white photographs, baroque-like in their dramatic lighting, are free of any prejudice. Instead, they are compellingly imbued with a deep sense of curiosity and understanding, with each photograph revealing a broad spectrum of sexuality, fetishes, and often-private aspects of masculinity.
