Leonardo Corredor by David Vance



David Vance is one of my favorite photographers, his artistry and the beauty he creates is beyond the usual words like 'great' and 'amazing'. David's work to me is inspiring. Cannot think of a better adjective. I have profiled David's work a few times before. What most impresses me about David's work is the relationships he forms through his work with particular models to create such magic. I wrote last year about his work with Nathan Wessel, please check that post out HERE:



Another working relationship that stands out for me is that of David Vance with actor and model Leonardo Corredor. I love their work together. David beautifully captures Leonardo and his unique facial structure and amazing body in a series of shoots together. Leonardo, who currently hosts Invasion Casera in Telemundo has a great facebook fan page where he regularly showcases his work. Check that out HERE:

It is with deep sadness I post about the passing of model Ambrose Olsen. I heard this tragic news on Saturday but wanted to wait for more confirmation. I have featured Ambrose on FH in the past and my thought are with his family. Far too young!

Favorite Video of the Day: Philip Fusco by Hans Fahrmeyer

-Sunday With Hans-
-Philip Fusco-



Last Sunday I posted some new shots by one of my favorite models, Philip Fusco by one of my favorite photographers Hans Fahrmeyer. Hans sent me is new video which is without a doubt one of his best. Hans skillfully combines some of his old shoots with some of his new work with Philip to create a beautiful montage. It is great to see some previously unseen shots surface in Hans new video! Thanks as always Hans for sharing your work with FH. As always stop by Hans site HERE: to check out more of his work including his advertising and editorial work.

Nick Adams in 'La Cage aux Folles'



Broadways 'La Cage aux Folles' opened last Sunday night to rave reviews! All reports are this show is one not to miss! I love that the production acknowledges it's men are men in drag and the costumes highlight the male forum instead of trying to hide it. That means that actor and singer Nick Adams arms and legs are on full display.

Be sure to Check out Nick's appearance tomorrow on 'As The World Turns' and later this week with the cast of 'La Cage aux Folles' on 'Regis and Kelly'!



Pic Series Of The Day: David Butzow by msbimages



The Photographer:
Michal Boothe (msbimages)


I have posted images by photographer Michal Boothe in the past on FH. There is an honesty to his work I find very raw. Last November I profiled Michal and shared why his work has such an impact on me. I encourage to read that post HERE:

When your in front of the lens of Michal Booth your more than nude, your actually seen. Many models are 'hidden' even when nude with props, lighting, make-up and photography tricks to create the intended mood. With Michal, the mood, or concept of the shot is simply what is there a man alone in front of the camera. That in itself creates feelings long associated with photography, isolation, venerability, sexuality and to me most of all strength. It takes a strong man, a confidence, a commitment to step in front of Michal Booths camera because nothing can be hidden, everything that you are will be beautifully captured. Check more at Michal's MM page HERE:




The Model:
David Butzow


In revisiting Michal's work recently I was struck by his work with model and artist David Butzow. David's shots demonstrate what I was saying about Michal's work beautifully. One look at the first shot of David above and you are drawn in. A simply composed portrait yet so much more. From David's hair through his eyes and intensity of his facial features it is obvious from the one shot David is far more than just a good looking guy spending a day modeling.

Michal describes David as a REALLY intelligent struggling writer and artist. Their work together already had revealed an artist in David. David is 22 and hails from Carrollton, Texas. David has an incomplete Bachelor's in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Dallas. His current goals are to complete my major in English with a minor in Creative Writing.

"I am very passionate about pictures and modeling, and willing to try anything that I find interesting. I am very interested in photography, fine arts, drawing, music composition, graphic design and conceptual art. "

To see more specifically what type of artist David is, I encourage you to spend some time as I did on his Deviant Art page. You can find HERE: David's work is not roses and puppies, it is much more. As much as I enjoyed his work, and appreciated his talent, I was most impressed with his titles. Often artists leave their work untitled for the viewer to interpret. David gives each of his pieces a title or caption which to me helped with my understanding, enjoyment and appreciation of the piece. 'Emperor of Nothing' was one of my favorites.
