Have a heart

belisle.jpg

Kristopher photographed by David Belisle. A little something for the 14th; I can always be relied on to post some gore for Valentine’s Day. I was tempted to post this still from Bride of Re-Animator but it’s a bit excessive for something so frivolous. Ephraim Lilien’s drawing shows that the bleeding love heart isn’t such […]

New blade

katana.jpg

The Men with swords thread has been rather moribund of late but I did manage to make at post at the beginning of the year. This new addition, a suggestion by Clive (thanks, Clive!), was irresistible so it can help see the year out. Don’t ask why there’s a katana on the bed, I doubt […]

Mannen kunst

wezenaar1.jpg

Landscape II (1994) by Rick Wezenaar. Dutch photographer Rick Wezenaar writes that he’s now in business again after several years away from the field. Among his work there’s a substantial collection of male art photography featuring a variety of nudes and semi-nudes. Some of the models are dancers which will no doubt interest those who […]

Art of Fencing

imboden.jpg

Race Imboden. The Men with swords archive hasn’t received much attention recently, the last addition being in May 2012. Had I been more diligent I might have found a photo or two of American fencer Race Imboden before now, the picture above being one of many such images at a Pinterest page entitled Art of […]

Bad Behaviour Boys 2014 calendar

badbehaviour.jpg

Marco Blaze. Who knew there were hot guys in the Black Lodge? Not another calendar of mine (I don’t know anyone this attractive) but a new calendar from Ross Brownsdon and Travis de Jonk at Bad Behaviour Publishing who notified me about this yesterday. See François Sagat as a drawing, Chi Chi LaRue as herself, and […]

Weekend links 186

mutu.jpg

One Hundred Lavish Months of Bushwhack (2004) by Wangechi Mutu. I wouldn’t be so bold as to call Benjamin Noys’ contribution to the recent The Weird conference at the University of London a highlight, but it was a surprise to find Lord Horror in general and the Reverbstorm book in particular being discussed alongside so […]

Skivvies

underwear1.jpg

Not had anything for a while deserving of the eye candy tag so here’s some gratuitous shots from a short promo video for some underwear company or other (he said disingenuously). The ad is directed by Steven Klein, and the piece as a whole doesn’t appear to have had a straight viewer in mind given […]

Three stages of Icarus

icarus1.jpg

Daedalus and Icarus (1615–1625) by Anthony van Dyck. The story of the doomed youth as seen via the few Icarus works at the Google Art Project. Brueghel’s famous painting is absent, unfortunately, so I won’t quote the equally famous lines by Auden either. Van Dyck gives us a golden-haired twink that Auden might approve of […]

The art of Michael Leonard

leonard1.jpg

Against the Glass. British artist Michael Leonard received a passing mention here some time ago for his work as an illustrator in the 1970s. Since that time he’s concentrated on establishing himself as a portraitist of considerable repute, with a painting of the Queen and Spark the Corgi hanging in the National Portrait Gallery. These […]

muto7-1.jpg

In which Muto Manifesto, the photo-magazine created by ace French photographers Exterface, celebrates a year of publication with a new edition that’s available in two print editions (one of which is already sold out). The model is the splendid Matthieu Charneau who featured in the first issue. See page samples here and in the online […]

Tamotsu Yato’s men with katanas

yato1.jpg

Unidentified model from Otoko (1972). Two photos by Tamotsu Yato (c. 1928–1973), a pioneer of homoerotic photography in Japan who published his work in three collections: Young Samurai: Bodybuilders of Japan (1967), Naked festival: A Photo-Essay (1969), and Otoko: Photo-Studies of the Young Japanese Male (1972). Yukio Mishima introduced the first two volumes, and also […]

Los Bikers by Dënver

losbikers1.jpg

What’s going on here then? An epigraph from Yukio Mishima…an Air-like song…a pair of boys stripping down to their underwear to play bondage games…gorgeous dancers in white briefs performing amid statuary… Yes, it gets my vote. Dënver are from Chile, and the song is Los Bikers from their 2010 album Música, Gramática, Gimnasia. I’d tell […]

A hustle here, a hustle there…

gedney1.jpg

Male hustler standing on street corner (1967) photographed by William Gale Gedney. One of those irresistible confluences of disparate things occurred this week. Watching Todd Haynes’ fabulous Velvet Goldmine for about the tenth time at the weekend had me listening to Lou Reed’s Transformer album the day after. The sight of these New York street […]

The Classical alibi in physique photography

stowitts.jpg

Stowitts photographed by Nickolas Muray. The title is from two gallery pages at the Queer Arts Resource which runs through a history of the old subterfuge whereby homoerotic pictures were decorated to look suitably Greek or Roman. This seldom fooled anyone, even in Oscar Wilde’s day, but it no doubt helped to keep the studios […]

The recurrent pose 43

guillemain.jpg

Not had one of these posts for a while but the theme still seems inexhaustible. The cute dancer above is Mathieu from a set I linked to earlier by Jean-Philippe Guillemain. Below there’s a pose that’s closer to Flandrin’s original, complete with seascape and a no doubt uncomfortable rocky perch. This one is from a […]

Jean-Philippe Guillemain’s dancers

guillemain1.jpg

Mathieu by Jean-Philippe Guillemain. A collection of male dancers pose beside the usual complement of agency models in the portfolio of French photographer Jean-Philippe Guillemain. Are all European dancers this attractive or does he just have a good eye? See the others on his site. Previously on { feuilleton } • Danseur Noble • The […]

Muto: The Exterface Manifesto

muto1.jpg

In which French photographers Exterface extend their particular brand of erotic styling into the world of online publications. Muto is a typically high-quality production (requires registration with Issuu), the theme this time being the hothouse of the 1970s when the word “clone” was as much associated with gay bars as with the products of science […]

Hello, sailor

bossert.jpg

Homotography goes nautical again this week, sporting shots of model Lukas Bossert in a session by Mustafa Sabbagh. I’m not sure whether these have any purpose beyond showing off Mr Bossert’s physique but we don’t really need any other reason, do we? Homotography has bigger pics should you require them. Incidentally, fashion photography is now […]

Querelle again

theocharis.jpg

Jean Genet is never far away, this photo being from a Querelle-themed feature for Schön magazine. The model is Sebastian Sauve, the photographer is Dimitris Theocharis, and it’s no surprise that all the clothes are by Jean Paul Gaultier. Homotography has the rest of the series while the photographer has plenty of other fine work […]

Fred Holland Day revisited

day5.jpg

St Sebastian with wounded chest (c. 1906). The work of American photographer Fred Holland Day (1864–1933) has featured here in the past but it’s only recently that I came across the archive of prints at the Library of Congress. Not all the works there are digitised yet, and some are still unavailable for viewing, but […]
