'I think actors are mostly exhibitionists on some levels anyway. But I’m not doing anything gratuitous.' Kevin SpirtasDays of our Lives
'Why would I have put a jock strap on to be lying there in bed? If we’re going to be here in a real time, in a real situation, then I would just assume or prefer to be nude to get up and get dressed like you would do naturally. As you can see in the show, we have great “sheetography." Sometimes the sheet pulls away and you see a little bit more. But I’m focused on what I’m saying to Jude. The nudity doesn’t bother me.'
My collaborations with photographer Joe Mazza, (The Male Image) go back even further, starting in 2013 with his work with model Randall O'Reilly. (An Ordinary Day) One of the things that first struck me about Joe's work was how beautifully he utilized background and location. Whether it was that kitchen with Randall, the bathtub with Austin, or the river with Woody Fox, the locations Joe utilizes are more than just backgrounds, but incorporated into the story.
