Brazilian born, Sao Paolo based photographer Gabriel Wickbold is 27 years old and self taught, ”I picked up some tips from my photographer friends, and made a research laboratory in my studio,” he recalls. “Every day I discover how to do different kinds of lighting. But for me, it’s about much more than the perfect lighting setup. It’s about the perfect vibe.” His bright color palate and passionate sexual energy seem to scream of his nationality, Brazil is pure rawness with a sense of pride in the half naked bodies scattered throughout . There is not much puritan thinking down there, and Wickbold’s wet,sticky series “Sexual Color’s” is a great example of that.
