I had met Guntram online, and our chatting quickly became planning. We agreed to meet outside a typical cruising area at Tiergarten; I noticed him from across the street, standing next to his bicycle. We met at his apartment several times, and he shared with me his interest in western folk music. I learned that there was an odd relationship between German and American cowboy mythology, and Guntram had been exposed to this culture growing up. Being from Texas, people typically assume that I must either be or am related to cowboys. In this image, which is a constructed scene that I am a part of, I wanted to portray a loving bond between an older and younger man—inline with the theme. Variable Embrace attempts to reveal a type of masculine tenderness that is mostly unseen in modern media. Not only that, to depict intergenerational relationships in a beautiful way. Technical: Edition 1 of 3. Frameless archival print on 100% cotton paper. Sans-frame is an aesthetic choice, and I will not provide a frame unless we make other arrangements. Two weeks are needed to facilitate orders. Shipped flat.
