Naked Men

£29.99

Product description

This extraordinary book documents a fascinating moment in the history of American culture - a period in the 1930s, '40s and '50s that give birth to a new notion of male beauty and desire, and to a new type of male icon. Long before Stonewall and the gay pride movement, a small group of daring men - photographers and the models who sat for them - helped pave the way for male sexual liberation. Led by the photographer George Platt Lynes and featuring men such as Jean Marais, Yul Brynner, Paul Cadmus and Tennessee Williams, this group of men - straight as well as gay - shattered taboos surrounding the artistic representations of the male figure. Their ground-breaking work remains as relevant and evocative today as it did half a century ago and its influence can be seen in the work of modern masters such as Bruce Weber, Herb Ritts and Robert Mapplethorpe.
