“My aim is not to look for beautiful men to shoot, but to shoot the beauty and even more important the uniqueness in the men I work with,” photographer Robert Siegelman tells Queerty. “The men need not be beautiful in any conventional way, but I would like the pictures to have a beauty and, even more important, to have meaning.”
Siegelman, who lives and works in Boston, has shown his work in museums and galleries around the world, including at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York, The Leather Archives and Museum in Chicago and “untitled mail id” at the Angus-Hughes Gallery in London.

“My work can certainly be provocative, and I like that,” he explains. “It is also quite intimate, and sometimes explicitly sexual. I want to be able to touch people on various levels, and hope that my work may play a part in how we look at sex and sexuality.”
