Those who frequent FH know one of my favorite views, is the rear view. I am always surprised when I am sent a series of images of models and they are made up of only frontal shots. The male form is so much more than just one body part, in fact I realized long ago the penis can often be the least interesting aspect of an image. A man's back, and back side is one of the strongest vantage points to truly appreciate the beauty of the male form. In many cases, when a photographer's main focus is the capture of the cock, the image usually lacks depth and emotion and is viewed, judged and usually quickly forgotten.
Photographer Bryan Nevin, whom I first featured last March, (Man Of Steel) understands this clearly, even with adult film star Armond Rizzo at the other end of his lens. Armond's body has been filmed from pretty much every angle, so Bryan's goal was to find a way to capture something new, a view unique through his eyes. I admit it was the last image below, featuring Armond's glorious butt that first caught my eye, Bryan keeps Armond's face, and beautiful eyes, front and center in each shot. By doing so, Bryan creates a series of images of a man, known primarily for his body, into so much more.
Thankfully actor Australian actor Xavier Samuel actors seems to often find himself naked (and wet) on film. Many might remember him running along the beach in Newcastle back in 2008. In A Few Best Men, Samuel is again soaking wet and not fully dressed for the party...
through my eyes (and body) I
want to express the male body
in a challenging, yet sensitive
way, as well as to give the viewer
a unique opportunity to step
inside a stylized version of my
own sexual fantasies
