Woman

LOOK OF WONDER

In Greek culture ωρως (eros) is love, desire, impulse that moves toward something, a divine principle that pushes towards beauty. In the Greek context, therefore, there was no precise distinction between “the passion of love and the desire for beauty that the god symbolized. its role was to connect with a higher psychic dimension, the people who are more "attentive" and sensitive to the importance of the function of desire which is not just falling in love, in the sense we know, but attraction towards something or someone who creates the disturbance necessary for our evolution. Unfortunately, the worst Christian heritage of this psychophysical phenomenon well known by the ancients before Christ and narrated by Socrates in Plato's symposium, has given us the “belief” that eros is a phenomenon linked only to the sphere of sexuality. The West has lost this precious and wonderful baggage of ancient psychology along the way. The “erotic” attitude is not simply reduced to what lies under the “fig leaf,” as Christianity of the first centuries after Christ wanted us to believe. It is not reduced only to the sexual organs, but it is an energy that offers us the possibility to overcome the limits of the horizon of our gaze. It is a propulsive force, initially in an aesthetic form, then in the pleasure of seeing the body or anything else capable of seducing, which in people of good intellect transcends to a state of marvelous disturbance during which, involving the entire psyche, we learn about our emotions through the other. The attraction towards the beauty of a body, in its entire aspect, is an energy that gives us the possibility to connect with a higher sphere of our psyche, with something unknown that we miss: the discovery of our emotions. moves us towards pleasure and happiness.

FROM THE BOOK “IO TI IMMAGINO” BY IGOR SIBALDI:
“Sensuality and sexuality are the expression of a still little-known part of our psyche. Sexuality is not just a biological function, like hunger and thirst, it transcends the biochemical laws of matter. There is in sexuality something which intensely attracts or intensely repels, which goes beyond one's physical need for it; it transcends both the need and the knowledge I have of what is going on in my psyche ”. “Sexuality understood as a state of great emotional intensity or impulse to pleasure is the expression of a transcendent function of the psyche that allows us to broaden its own knowledge.”

PS The photos below are the beginning of a series of personal research shootings on beauty, attraction, pleasure and the search for what blocks them: what I have called “Portrait therapy.”
