Jofetto Jofetto

Be My Nest (London, 2020) is a book that investigates the relationship between humans and domestic spaces; about intimacy and those places which allow us to be intimate.

The photographic investigation began in Naples, but then turned into an extended process of self-discovery free from physical and geographical connotations - from the Neapolitan Femminielli and rooms purposefully decorated to strike an enchanting balance between reality and fiction, to Milan- and London-based queer scenes, to travels across India and Peru, to small, daily moments of affection and eroticism during lockdown and before.

The result is a sometimes naive, sometimes cheeky and insolent window on a world that acts as a shield in uncertain times, a coming-of-age documentation mirrored by the delicacy of the lens on the inside, and by the tactile velvet hardback cover on the outside.

Be My Nest is permeated by a gentle, underlying sense of melancholy that accompanies Jo Fetto’s nests: people, places, communities, ethereal moments that offer empathy and refuge from the hectic pace of everyday life. It’s an ode to their safe spaces; a celebration of the family that gave them life and an homage to the one that have kept them alive.
