“I have never been attracted to a photography that seizes the moment. It’s the second look that unveils the revealing detail, never the first,” says M. Di Iorio. Such sentiments from the photographers statement are reflected in a series of images titled ‘Objects’ and ‘Human being’ on the artists website. Not for the first time has Di Iorio caught our attention at Juxtapoz, back in 2012 the photographer was capturing ‘scantily clad’ and ‘gorgeously tattooed’ women in a series titled ‘A Point Moving on a Crooked Curve.’
Far from the naturalistic beach setting of this particular body of work, Di Iorio is currently working to a far different brief. Recent works incorporate the studio setting to thrilling effects. His photographs are characterised by clean compositions with bubblegum colours that make your mouth water, with strange appeal in their hyper real stylisations.
