I ran across this beautiful image on Tumblr of two men in a tight embrace, on black the other white, and I was so taken by the photo that I had to discover who created it. There was something about the simplicity of the moment captured that really spoke to me. Were the two men saying farewell or hello?

After a little research, I found out it was by a photographer on of Joseph Caprio. I couldn’t find much about him as far as a bio goes, with the exception of a short paragraph on Amazon which stated “Joseph Caprio takes photographs. Of men’s bodies. In most cases nude. The photograph reveals man. Joseph Caprio has chosen the naked man. As for me looking at these photographs, I am searching. What am I searching for? I am searching for the soul. (But whose soul?)” -Jean-Luc Massori

From what I could tell on Amazon, there are three books that were published by Joseph Caprio; MEN, Un amant par jour and Bad Boys, all of which are available if you are interested in having a copy in your personal library.
