Francisco Tavoni uses photography as a way to collectively understand the power of affection. He addresses the ego and the generation of identity as a process that can –and furthermore should– occur within the body instead of outside of it, without the predominance of outer patterns. Tavoni sustains it’s in this realm where genuine identity is formed, in the depths of oneself, where no exterior norms apply.
Hailing from Venezuela, Tavoni has traveled Earth to find authenticity in identity, moving across various different bodily shapes, regardless of gender, race or wider cultural background.
Humans, he says, are subject to many outside influences that can corrupt what happens within – he then vouches for the search of meaning in separate processes from that which is socially accepted or even pushed to the forefronts of society.
