Think: Gilbert & George...the Anglo-Italiano artists, gay, been together for years...sell for big bucks. That's where the similarities end...Paco & Manolo, together, younger, gay, Spanish photographers...who publish a periodical magazine - Kink - capturing the naked male form in all of its magnificence and beauty.
G&G challenge...on a grand-colourful-scale, the effect of their work is immediate...to everyone. It may repel, bamboozle, even startle...but, it will always cause controversy...as to what art is!
P&M's effect is not entirely different...but, their audience is not for everyone...their niche: Horny women and gay men. While their approach seems to be surprisingly philosophical, a little political [even] and very personal...their work is remains welcoming, enticing and ludicrously erotic.
As a film [about artists], it is a fascinating discourse on the art-versus-porn debate...however, it is a little long-winded...they made their point, early on...but, while the director endures with beating a dead horse and throwing in vast amounts of eye-candy...it doesn't detract from P&M's obvious obsession with naked male flesh! And...they photograph it...artistically!
A film essay about a singular couple, Paco and Manolo, two Catalan photographers from the outskirts of Barcelona, who have been together for thirty years. Both have managed to work as a single photographer and have captured their imagery in Kink magazine, a very personal photography fanzine with an essentially Mediterranean homoerotic aesthetic.
