Al hilo: (pop.) Without interruption; in a continuous way, followed.
“5 al hilo: marks my beginning with homoerotic/pornographic/queer photography when still amateur photographers were not encouraged, in Buenos Aires, to photograph men and nudes. With this project, I started my most intimate search registering “boys” and their nakedness, with simplicity and even with shyness from both sides. 5 al hilo is the result of that search, where masturbation happens to do more than just pleasure and is transformed into art, where these “boys” play to make me fall in love.” – Jon Villar
