LIVING DSM-IV-TR This is an investigation on the nature of human sexuality to show the contrast existing between "personal fulfillment" and psychiatry. This series of photographs show how individuals decide to live their own lives through their own "paraphilias". DSM (Diagnostic and Statical Manual of Mental Disorders) is the standard classification of mental disorders published by the American Psychiatric Association, currently under its IV revised edition. Paraphilias are defined in the DSM-IV as pathological intense recurring sexual fantasies, sexual urges and behaviours. The project has sought a list of paraphilias that reflect different types of sexual practices, collecting scientific or anecdotal approaches that help to show that they are possible.
