THE PROJECT IS CURRENTLY ONGOING AND WE ARE LOOKING FOR NEW MODELS, PLEASE APPLY VIA MAIL: charlieburgioph@gmail.com

A project dedicated to the cult of the male body, to its proportions and details that make it comparable to a work of art. Just like a statue le physique represented in Virtus combines the principles set out in the "canon" of Polykleitos, such as beauty, harmony and proportion.

The project's key element is the light, one that reveals and hides, that limits and expands the many facets of the physical, making it emerge from the dark as a sunlit armour. Virtus is composed of photos and videos in black and white that will give you the chance to appreciate the principles of symmetry and beauty of the human body. Qualities that are independent of the mere ostentation to which we are accustomed to people today, where we are getting closer to an always more androgynous,  less virile and doped prototype.

With Virtus, we step back to the classical era but with a fresh approach through the lenses of modern photography and with the most innovative lighting techniques.
