Joseph Vum­baco uses the bed as his can­vas, with his mod­els invit­ing us to join them in mo­ments of cap­tured in­ti­macy. 8-pages of stun­ning mod­els.

…it’s a place where we can feel ei­ther se­cure or vul­ner­a­ble. It’s a place we se­lec­tively in­vite oth­ers to join us and, in do­ing so, make them our in­ti­mate com­pan­ions.

Joseph Vum­baco of Joee Vee Photograph­y, New York, uses the bed as his can­vas, with his mod­els invit­ing us to join them in mo­ments of cap­tured in­ti­macy. A naked man in bed in front of a cam­era also comes with cer­tain con­no­ta­tions.

Joseph ac­knowl­edges that there is line be­tween pornog­ra­phy and art and be­lieves that line ex­ists some­where in the mind of the viewer. “My photograph­y show­cases the male body in its nat­u­ral state, fo­cus­ing on the shapes and curves… whether you want to view my photograph­y in a sex­ual way or ar­tis­ti­cally is up to you,” he says. “Per­son­ally, I find re­strained im­ages like these sex­ier than porn be­cause porn gives it all away, leav­ing noth­ing to the imag­i­na­tion. My photograph­y leaves you guess­ing, imag­in­ing what’s un­der that sheet.”
