another hot and steamy summer with men in selected parks (2011-14)

Nature is often hidden, sometimes overcome, seldom extinguished.

- Francis Bacon

As a gay man, I’m interested in meeting and knowing the experiences of other gay men. I’ve always been interested in their mating rituals. How we find each other and signal to play. In China I felt more safe then in Australia so as early as 2011 I took my camera out to the cruising parks, armed with the knowledge of my otherness and manners should keep me from meeting a nasty situation. I documented the places in daylight, though it was night that they come alive. I made photographs of the braver and unaware. It is nothing but a glimpse into their part of our world.
