Welcome to the Goethe-Institut CityScapes Blog.
From January through December 2011, these were the parameters for a playground of diverse, fascinating, vibrant tales: Responding individually to a collective impetus, a host of hand-picked young bloggers uploaded photos, texts, and multimedia. Every month, they were given a new theme. Step by step, they created a kaleidoscope of impressions, opinions, ideas and… plain fun.
This project has now ended. If you like what you see, you may want to check out the brand new CityTales Comic Blog.
You may argue that these photos lean towards nudity rather than sexuality. I guess it was not the photographer's goal to depict these men in a way that is commonly seen as erotic.
Luckily, beauty is a concept based on very personal/individual impressions - at least to some extent. I do see beauty in the fact that these people seem to be at peace with their surroundings and at ease with their bodies.
