About the Author

azt Italy

azt is a gay, HIV+, italian artist. Born in 1974, he lives and works in Bologna.

His interest for photography made him first develop the most narrative aspects of the medium. From 2007 he dedicates almost exclusively to portray naked men with the many male nudes series. His research starts with the statement of difference as human inestimable value and explores the most personal and erotic aspects of his subjects. Through their physical nudity, he unveils a male universe that strongly differs from rules and stereotypes imposed by fashion and mass culture. Bypassing cultural superstructures, he displays an image of personalized, intimate and strongly politicized masculinity.

He produced many artist books and published his works in contemporary art magazines and catalogs.

He exhibited in museums, private galleries and non-profit spaces in Europe and United States.

His works are included in important european and international art collections.
