your favorite gender-fluid erotic journal is back
"The body is the central point of eroticism," says Juan Hernández, who photographed the three covers of the new issue of Odiseo. His sentiment perfectly sums up the spirit of the Spanish publication, which has been redefining contemporary eroticism through its provocative, hardcover volumes for five years now.
This month, co-founders Albert Foch and Rafa Martínez present the publication's seventh issue, which focuses on the concept of truth, contrasting a sophisticatedly sensual visual universe with philosophical essays and texts.
Titled, fittingly, "The Truth," the issue includes the work of creatives like Paul Jung, who represents the human body as if it was a surreal landscape. You can also find pictures of the young photographer Bennie Julian Gay and intimate portraits by Maud Rémy-Lonvis. And then there are the three different covers. Together, they represent a fragmented tryptic, each depicting the eroticism found at the border between pleasure and pain, brutality and love.
