'Every artist undresses his subject, whether human or still life. It is his business to find essences in surfaces, and what more attractive and challenging surface than the skin around a soul?'
Almost two years in the making, 'expose' is a rich collection of 246 pages of full color nude photos featuring close to 40 different models from photographer Anthony Timiraos. Shot in the style of Old Master's paintings, the artists collection of nude photographs provides a diversity look at the (mostly) nude male bodies positioned in classical poses.
'I especially love the breadth of diversity Anthony captures. Diversity, not just of race and ethnicity, but diversity of age, body type, and maybe most significant, diversity of culture. Beyond ethnicity, one’s cultural background impacts the way lives are lived and how their ideas and passions are formed. For so many, this is often revealed on their bodies. It shows in their choice of piercings and body art and in the length of facial and body hair. It may most sharply show up in their comfort with being vulnerable, exposed and naked in front of the camera.'
Tye Briggs, Forward, expose
I have been fortunate to have been able to feature Anthony's work in a series of posts beginning this past July. (HERE:) Anthony's images are erotically dramatic and his subjects, beautifully varied. (Ed Galloway, featured below, graces pages 76-81) The incredible diversity of models means every model, every shoot, and every page of expose, is a visually unique and erotic experience.
The book is available in both paperback and kindle editions.
