Role Reversal? Well ... It can happen to anybody ... especially to a photographer who once was a model and a pageant candidate himself ... and then later ... have a change of heart and wants to try something new ... like photography perhaps? Confusing huh? But that's what happen to Lem Estiva who has the opportunity to try everything, and switch roles whenever he feels like it.

As a photographer ... Lem Estiva in his multiply blog mesmerizes you with an extraordinary portfolio of intimate and sensual male or female body forms. He takes a classical, almost a sculptural approach to human body ... and his photographs are characterized by technical and stylistic perfection. His images are meticulously refined and stylized, their affective power is very much about flesh and blood ... creating an electric tension between the abstract beauty of his subjects on the other hand ... and their raw sexuality on the other.

As a model, he can be a stunning internet companion too ... and the finished product shown above is an unabashed and exquisite salute to his genius. Having been relegated at the back of the camera for awhile ... his intuitive powers remained intact ... and who could better paint a tapestry of beautiful images than a photographer who was a model ... and a model who moonlights as a photographer.
