LOS HOMBRES Vol. 1 (small)
by rSEANd PHOTOGRAPHY
About the Book
This a visual story about the men of Latin American decent living in the United States. Beyond the stereotypes, prejudices and gender roles associated with this male dominated society lies a culture of people and pride.
These men are more than the titles and adjectives used to categorize, praise, devalue or express desire. They have created a world for themselves in the United States by starting businesses, buying and building homes, and establishing communities where it is possible to flourish even if you do not speak the native language.
They are husbands, fathers, sons, boyfriends, laborers, business men, artists, models, athletes, politicians, lawyers, doctors, accountants, activists, chefs, actors, entrepreneurs, clergy men, sinners and saints.
But above all, they are survivors.
LOS HOMBRES is a journey through a small section of Latinos in America, featuring both candid and glossy images of a variety of these boys and men.
rSEANd PHOTOGRAPHY is a moniker adopted by R. Sean Dibble. He is based in Mt. Rainier, Md. His first love was writing, including fiction, prose and songs, but he eventually found a deeper passion. Sean began taking pictures at the age of 14, and his images have included animals, nature and scenery, but he has always primarily photographed people. He concentrates mainly on male imagery presently, but his earliest portraits were solely of females. When asked to describe his style, Sean simply says, “photography is a self-expressive art form, and I basically take pictures that appeal to my own artistic sensibilities.” Sean’s images have appeared in Bruno Gmunder publications like Cock Tales, Beautiful Mag, YVY Magazine, Gazelle Magazine, ZOOGram, NEXT Media, Artistry of Male, Pink Rendezvous, Men and Photographers, and JustUsBoys.com, Sean also has his own online magazine – BLISS Male Mag, which features images and interviews of other artists whom he admires or is inspired by.
