ABOUT THE PROJECT
Dating culture has changed radically since mobile dating went mainstream some years ago. Dating apps don´t just make it easier to find a no-commitment hook-up, they also make it safer. Interacting via your computer or smartphone you feel in control of the situation. There is no risk, no danger, less vulnerability. But there are still people who are not scared of not knowing. The collaborative project by photographers Katia Repina and Luca Aimi explores cruising in Cataluña, Spain. This process of searching for sexual encounters in public places such as parks, beaches and parking lots, has attempted to reveal and understand the complexity of motivations and feelings that drive the subjects-broadcasting a sense of loneliness, shame, guilt, exclusion, adrenaline, the narrative poses disturbing questions in search for hidden reasons and excuses.
After all, these emotions are what makes a human being feel alive.
