'I'm lucky to have a job that allows and requires me to learn about lives and experiences of people, and I'm doing so, gaining insight into the collective human condition' Ahmed Shihab-Eldin
With all the air pollution swirling around this election year, it is always nice to hear voices of reason on television. Whether you support Syrian Refugee's coming or not, some of the hate and scare speech is almost beyond belief. I feel at times I watching a movie, something from decades earlier before we became open and tolerant, enlightened... human. Freedom of Speech is a wonderful thing, but sadly not everyone uses this right with respect. Ahmed Shihab-Eldin certainly does and I have enjoyed in the whirlwind of crazy that is currently the news, listening to his words, and his thoughts.
It was a year ago this month that I first featured London photographer Danny Barson and his images of Callum. I entitled the piece Irresistible, after researching the origin of Callum's name, and it appears from the amount of viewers the post got, his images proved to be just that.
Well, with a model like Callum, one serving could never be enough and lucky for us all, when I e-mailed Danny in September about featuring more of his work, he was smack dab in the middle of another shoot with Callum. Danny wet my appetite for a second helping by letting me know what a fun day he was having shooting and that Callum, who had to convinced to do their first shoot, was pushing his erotic boundaries for his follow-up shoot in front of Danny's camera.
'Danny's images capture so many beautiful sides of Callum. His body is of course off the charts, but what is most irresistible are Callum's magnificent eyes and devilishly sexy grin. Callum is able express wide eyed naiveté in some shots, and in others, a clear and strong awareness of the sexual power he is able to illicit from those around him.'
I wrote the quote above for the first piece, and it is proved even more on point this time. Callum is simply so beautifully natural in front of Danny's lens, comfortable and strong and incredibly sexy. Callum's appeal is systemic, it follow from every inch of his beautiful body from his eyes on down. Callum works every look, from Danny's portrait shots, the GQ fashion looks, body and physique, underwear and completely, and magnificently naked.
As satisfying and filling as this second helping of Danny's work with Callum has been, I am sure we could all make room in the future for a third. Until then, check out a few more shots of Callum on The Over-Flow HERE: Also check out Danny's site HERE: for even more shots from their work together!
Mr. Wu's stay at the Hotel Cortez was a short one, climaxing with a naked, but bloody, ending for the business traveller. Mr Wu's portrayer however, model and actor Charles Melton, proved more than memorable.
Melton continues the show's tradition of introducing viewers to some the industries hottest men. From the second he swaggered down the hall I was melting for Melton. That great face, those lips and that hair had me at first glance, Melton has a incredible look that lit up the screen. Melton's nude scene was part of the November 11th episode, Room 33, and also included nude scenes from Wes Bentley and Finn Wittrock. Check out Finn's scene on The Over-Flow HERE:
