The Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico is currently presenting a private collection, previously unseen, to which Pedro Slim himself a photographer has been adding for twenty years. These one hundred photographs or thereabouts by more than sixty big names including Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Diane Arbus, Bill Brandt, Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Man Ray, Francisco Toledo and David Wojnarowicz, all reflect a fascination for the attitude and pose of the nude model in front of the photographer. Through these studio and experimental compositions, as well as through raw descriptions of the New York underground circles of the 1980s, these vintage proofs reveal a visceral attraction to the human body– of both man and woman, heterosexual and homosexual, perfect and imperfect– in all its magnetism, eroticism, and vulnerability.
