On my old tumblr there was a standing joke about nudists' predilection for playing volleyball, but today we take a look as some of their other sports pursuits. I have a hard time wrapping my head around naked men doing fencing, but apparently it happened.

Gregor Arax was active through his Arax Studio of Paris from 1936 to about 1970. Today will be the second series I've posted here on Blogger of this great photographer's work, and the photos will span almost the entirety of his long career. We start with what is probably the most recent Arax photo in my collection, a shot of Helmut Riedmeier from the late 1960's.
Edited to add: Thanks to Deeros for the correction on the model's name. He's right!
Gregor Arax judiciously used oil on some of his early models. It was the fashion in physique photography at the time, and in the case of Jerome Gallecier here in the late 1940's,
it was put to good use accenting his well defined chest and abdomen.
