This book is the first to feature the work of the Brazilian photographer Alair de Oliveira Gomes (1821-1992). Gomes found his creative metier rather late in life. A philosopher, art critic and university professor, he was in his fifties when he began to the photographic work which focused almost exclusively on the athletic bodies of young men at the beach in Rio de Janeiro. This tireless collector of books, pictures and films, who was murdered at the age of 71, decided to transform the thousands of pages of his diaries into images, thereby composing an immense erotic tableau of black and white photographs devoted to the beauty of the male body. Photographs covertly taken on the beach, or with a telephoto zoom lens from the window of his flat, were extensively reworked and ordered in a sequence according to a rhythm or ‘visual music’.
