The boys of Wilhelm von Gloeden


Von Gloeden signed this photographic print in 1925, in Taormina (Sicily), like a painter would sign his painting...

Von Gloeden used photography to paint boys beauty, in the Arcadian tradition of Theocritus and Virgil, of the Anthologia Palatina, the part of it called "The Boyish Muse"....

Although being rooted in late XIXth and early XXth c. Sicily, von Gloeden's photographs have a atemporal dimension... They are visual poems about boys beauty, about the love of beautiful boys...

If you are sensitive to the vintage overtones of von Gloeden's photographic art, you should definitely visit the blog Sicilian Dreams.
