Ryan Pfluger is a Brooklyn based photographer. His work is well-respected for his naturalistic, contemplative portraits.
Pfluger first published images from his ongoing series “Men I’ve Met” a few years back. Since then he has continued to shoot the men in his life, both within the studio and outside, in an interestingly ambiguous manner. The subject’s in Pfluger’s project are viewed through a deliberate gaze- their sexuality often unclear, ultimately irrelevant. Only a handful of Pfluger’s subjects in “Men I’ve Met” may be considered by the general public to be conventionally attractive. But nevertheless, in front of the lens, they are sensuous and beautiful.
