Description

A series of shirtless young men — Sepuya’s friends, boyfriends and collaborators — pose deadpan against a plain white wall in his bedroom.

The book’s title was inspired by Roland Barthes’ “A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments,” his 1977 impressionistic treatise on desire. Sepuya’s work allows him to explore the subject while categorizing special relationships that have affected him through the years. Seen together, the pictures feel ritualistic in their repetition, but they also offer a voyeuristic frisson: the viewer is left to imagine what exactly transpired between the characters.
