Dark, volatile and emotive, Fadli Rahman’s photographs encapsulate the rawness and sensuality that can characterize fashion photography. Fadli’s exhibit at TriSpace is a review of his works over the least two years. His focus on the male physique and female domination – that real masculinity is expressed through genuine submission and that man is exalted only when he is willing to be humbled – is an exploration of the human anatomy. Challenging the public perception of nudity as taboo, he hopes to provoke the usually conservative viewers with his bold and extroverted photographs. He has shot for emerging local designers and the new faces of the fashion world and cites photographers such as Steve Klein, Mario Sorrenti and Juergen Teller as his inspiration.
