by Giovanni ZunigaOn its surface, A Lust For Love is a self-inflicted, crude and cruel journey through cocktail bars, strip clubs, girls’ bedrooms, red-lit rooms, tearful breakups, porn collections, and melancholy memories.

As in a pa... more

The essence of Don’t Be Shy represents one man’s passage through the eclectic coffee houses and performance art venues that celebrated diversity and uncensored self-expression.
