Flowers are often associated with the delicate and graceful qualities of femininity, so it might surprise the viewer to see masculine subjects within Father Nature by Mariano Testa. The sentimental photographer has perhaps juxtaposed these two often opposing elements to allow the observer to ponder the truth of their relationship.
It might be perceived that not one of these muscular male models physically shows the fragility and daintiness of the colorful blossoms that surrounds his nude body. A closer look into the expressions of the subjects might, however, unearth a softness and a beauty that flora do exude.
Though Father Nature by Mariano Testa does more than collocate floral arrangements and herculean figures simply for the sake of it. The naked men are each decorated in the bouquets of different continents.
