Rodrigo Ramos' interest in the topic of the body led him to undertake a documentary project with boxers. Ramos still wanted to give it a specific meaning, so he decided to make an exploration of male vulnerability. For this purpose he photographed boxers from different disciplines and chose to distance himself from the sport in it self. Bringing the topic back into his own context, he looked for images that referred to pain and fragility.
Inspired in the painting of the saint and martyr Sebastian, Ex corde —a Latin expression that means "from the heart"— attempts to assess human experience.
