Ceci n’est pas un polaroïd – Benjamin Edeline calls himself an obsessive observer since childhood. He has always been fascinated by the human body: by its gestures, its movements, the way it is articulated, its power and vulnerability. As a way to investigate the intricacies of movement, of one single moment, the practice of digital Polaroids has become the natural medium for his artistic research called: Ceci n’est pas un polaroïd.

Collecting, cutting, mixing his own photography with male nudes and vintage gay porn magazines, with their complex interplay of gaze and self-exposure, nurture his personal interpretation of intimacy.

For the first time ever, Benjamin Edeline publishes three of his iconic series “Ceci n’est pas un polaroïd” in book form: Black Screen, White Socks and Red Lovers. His label MENLAYERS is dedicated to male iconography, photography, nudity, still-life and queer graphics from the 1970s and 1980s. The artist lives and works in Paris.
