Photographer: Butu Billikhodze
“This is one of the special experience in my life, affected strongly and generated infinite amounts of emotions that will exist till the end of my life. This was not just a photoshoot, this is a summer story about gay man, who love hiking, sleeping in the tent and tranveling decimal kilometers on foot to see and appreciate beaty of the nature. This story about men, who approach at specific point to explore their abilities and unknown side of their personalities.
We started our road at the very small village, where long and narrow path leads toward to the mountain, almost 2300 meters above the sea, where celestial beauty hits strong and almost blows your mind. Seeing all this landscape in front of me, made me want to fill the view with natural beauty of the male body, completely naked, uncovered natural as the places we’ve been. It was pleasure to see all this boys expressing themselves freely, without restraint;
Feeling intimacy with world and each other, sharing their love and affection one another without fear and discretion. This shameless beauties, demonstrated mysterious way, made breathtaking scene that I desired and tried to capture, immortalized on my films. Climbing and jumping on the rock without anything on, swimming in the freezing waters to relief tiredness after hiking, enjoying our heavenly bodies that was merged with nature at the abandoned places is spiritual-emotional journey in the depths of self-confidence that is life changing and never be forgotten.
