Come Play With Me - a new series of photographs
We are excited to announce the launch of a new body of work by Ron Diorio - Come Play With Me - to coincide with the selection of two of his videos for a new exhibition at the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University. This new series follows the success of Diorio's last two series - Comin' Around Again and Hometown.
These images represent an aesthetic continuation, but signify a radical departure in terms of subject matter. Diorio explains: "In 2012, I began a project to make Subfactors, an experimental film suggested by a research paper published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior on 'Why Humans Have Sex.'" Participants in the research project were asked to answer how frequently each of 238 reasons led them to have sex. "I posted on Craigslist, using various 'reasons' for having sex as the headline or subject of my Casual Encounters listing. The images that formed the basis for the Come Play With Me series were initially sent back in response to those postings."
The Complete Come Play With Me series is available for viewing here.
Come Play With Me and Diorio's short Subfactors were recently highlighted on AI-IP's Pro Photo Daily, by David Schonauer.
The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2013
