Matthew Morrocco’s debut NFT series is a study of male vulnerability, sexual desire, and the ageing process.

Matthew Morrocco is a photographer and multimedia artist living and working in New York City. Starting the project in his early 20s, it’s an amalgam that explores ageism within the already marginalised LGBTQ community. “It may have been photography that I meant to inspect but what I found was an essence of human connectivity that extends beyond just sex and lust,” he says. “I met men in their homes. We had tea, shed tears, shared orgasms, and intimate details.”

Complicit presents an ethnography of men who have matured past their physical prime, perhaps, but not beyond erotic interest. Morrocco’s models sometimes appear as bashful fragments, their limp forms sunk in a sofa or snarled around a tree. More often they flaunt their undress: one strikes a come-hither pose, and another snubs the camera, as though to test its dedication.
