After the San Francisco and Berlin episodes of his “In Their Room” series about gay men and their bedrooms, in the third installment Travis Mathews introduces a handful of gay men living in the UK capital. As they are getting ready for a casual hook-up, they open up about their expectations and share their innermost desires and thoughts on sex, romance and relationships.
Mathews' work benefits from his ability to strike a unique connection with his characters, who get comfortable with their physical as well as emotional nudity in front of the camera. With a tender insight and a striking eye for seemingly small but significant details, he sensitively compiles a mosaic of male sexuality, intimacy and vulnerability.
