“Human Behind the Penis” is a coffee table-book containing photographs of 106 erected penises. Hiding behind the photos is a variety of different personalities, occupations, body types and stories from life. We get to meet everything from celebrities, tv personalities, cops, priests, journalists, to teachers, train conductors and government officials. They all come from different backgrounds, sexual orientations and lifestyles. What they do have in common is that they are all portrayed in the same way, and that they all are anonymous!
The coffee table-book ”Human Behind The Penis” is a beautiful and lavish photo book that is meant to be a role model for those generally not portrayed in body art photographs. By showing a diversity of penises together with their own very personal story, the book creates a very relatable feeling and contributes to strengthen the selfesteem with those who feel insecure about their own penises.
– Many men have insecurities about how their penises look, and compare themselves with actors from pornography. It creates feelings of shame and insecurity. Within pornography the actors most often has a big and straight penis, and in other context, you most often get to see soft penises. With this I wanted to show many different types of erected penises, that all are beautiful in their own way, says Jonas Norén.
