Big Sexyland

Zielony’s series of photographs portray youth in their often precarious surroundings. By way of contact with those portrayed as well as formal decisions, Zielony is able to generate an intensity without seeming voyeuristic. The photo and video work Big Sexyland documents the hustler scene around the Berlin porn cinema of the same name. In a close up, we see the unfocused video showing the face of a man who seems to be sleeping; his location is only made apparent by the soundtrack in the background.
