The Intimacy Project
What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love
Trinidad-born Ricardo Scipio has thus far garnered the reputation for making unique, multi-layered, provocative work in film and photography. His first feature film “When” was an irrepressibly brutal and comedic portrayal of dysfunctional struggling actresses in New York. His second feature film “Watershed” was the first independent feature film in North America to be shot in digital high-definition, breaking ground with its technical and narrative accomplishments. His third feature film “Finder of Lost Children,” set in the Caribbean community of Canada, is a poignantly moving and humorous story of two half-sisters that meet for the first time at the funeral of the father neither one of them knew.
Ricardo grew up in Toronto and attended both The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and The University of Waterloo. He started his art career as a fashion photographer and then later as a fine art nude photographer. He has had 14 gallery shows of his work and his first book of photographs- a collaboration with noted Canadian poet George Elliott Clarke, was published in November of 2005. His second book “The Goddess Project” was completed in 2010. A book of nudes of Black women entitled “Uzuri” was finalized in 2011. Never idle for long, Scipio has completed photographing his fourth book “The Goddess Project Book Two” in 2012. His fifth book “The Goddess Project Book Three” was finished in 2015. The Sex Goddess Project Book One was completed in 2016 He completed The Sex Goddess Project Book Two in 2018, Book Three of the series in 2019 and Book Four in 2020. Ricardo has recently started his his tenth book “The Intimacy Project.” When not on tour, Scipio makes his home in Canada.
