The Art of the Close Shave Demonstrated in Fashion Filmmaker Bart Hess’ Sexy Short

The seductive curves of a toned figure are slowly unveiled by the ultimate seamless shave in designer, animator and photographer Bart Hess’s sleek new film. Inspired by the aerodynamic forms of swimmers currently battling it out in the Olympic pool, Hess was aided by a pair of human shavers manipulating a two-meter long blade in turning a mechanical act of grooming into a strangely hypnotic performance. “What is important to me in my work is a sense of estranging,” admits Hess, who added the white bar in post-production to compound the uncanny feel of the film. “I want to show the spectator an image that may not be recognizable right away.”

¿Puede ser sexy el afeitado integral de un hombre? Si su protagonista está musculado, tonificado y es absolutamente perfecto en su estructura ósea, seguro que nos convierte a hombres y mujeres en “mirones” tras la ventana indiscreta de nuestras pantallas.

Las curvas seductoras del protagonista del vídeo y su ritmo pausado pero inquietante nos enganchan hasta el final, a la espera de descubrir las formas del modelo en su formato original. Esto es lo que logra la nueva película de fotógrafo Bart Hess, que según ha afirmado, se inspiró en las formas aerodinámicas de los nadadores que compiten en las piscinas olímpicas. Hess se ayudó con un par de navajas de afeitar de dos metros de hoja, aunque en las imágenes quedan ocultas bajo una franja blanca.

Imágenes hipnóticas que enganchan hasta el final.
