Ode to the Classics

gloeden.jpg

In which photographer Mikel Marton works variations on Wilhelm von Gloeden’s nude studies of the boys of Taormina, Sicily. “Classic” has a double meaning here since Von Gloeden’s photographs are now considered classic works of early homoerotica (Oscar Wilde was an enthusiast) as well as borrowing their props and poses from Classical antiquity. The very attractive model in the new shots is one Barry K and Mikel also posts some pictures by Sascha Schneider whose deeply strange and mystical illustrations have featured here in the past.

    Wonderful! I like the pictures on his blog too (in particular those of 9th January). He has very interesting nudes.

    These new ones had me wondering why no one (that I’m aware of) has done this before.
