In this series of 37 constructed self-portraits Moreno responds to found texts on male same-sex hook-up sites.
The artist obsessively scours apps and websites for adverts which are notably specific and which are within the scope of their physical characteristics. They then take the text of the advert - which becomes the title of the picture - and attempt to create an "ideal" response to it through self-portrait.
Acting as stylist, set decorator, subject and photographer, each image is made on a shoe-string budget in a corner of their flat.
Moreno is in recovery from a body dysmorphic and eating disorder, and the project originated as a way of addressing the crisis of being photographed and of seeing themselves.
Moving beyond the psychotherapeutic, the series explores how queer masculinities are unstable constructions, rooted in material and digital cultures and inextricably linked to the interests of neoliberalism.
