The Box: Sensual Photo Series Explores Confined Intimacy

Ron Amato’s photographic series and upcoming book, The Box, speaks to human experiences of self-discovery and community building. Over 100 color, and black and white photographs, the series focuses on themes of isolation, desire, conflict and empowerment using a series of boxes to create visual metaphors

“Evoking first his youth in Brooklyn, New York during the 1960s and 1970s, moving through his coming out as a gay man and to his present position as a respected professional photographer and teacher, Ron creates a vivid portrait of struggle and triumph,” Amato’s Kickstarter page explains.  “Individually the photographs evoke powerful responses. However, they achieve the scope of their power only in relation to each other.”

“Reflecting the square of the boxes in the photographs, this 96-page book is designed in a 10-inch square format. It has a hard cover and dust jacket. It is available with an embossed, cloth covered slipcase at specific pledge levels. The printing will be of the highest quality from a renowned Italian printing house.”
