Artist's Description

A series of 4 images titled Foul Play from a show for a Mardi Gras 2004 exhibition titled “Gym Boys Fantasy Stripped Bare”.

Below is the text about the show that was featured in the programme:

" It is no revelation that gay men are being constantly exposed to erotic images of the male body both in the GLBTQ and wider communities. As much as it is hard for many to admit, a lot of time is spent in Gyms trying to make ourselves look as good as the porn stars and images we’re constantly exposed to with good health coming second on many peoples lists of motivators. It’s vain and its shallow, but hey, It’s a tough world out there and we all want to stand out in the crowd. If dreaming of looking like hot porn stars motivates us whilst training and it works.. Why not?

Gym Boys’ Fantasies Stripped Bare is a series of photographs conceptualized by photographer Edmund Chiu that depicts some of the local lads in training. Their bodies being superimposed with their naked muscle fantasies which blur the lines between their fantasies and reality."
