Dave Martin Double Feature, Part 1 - Unknown Models

Dave Martin is one of my favorite photographers from the golden era of physique work for a lot of reasons.  One of those is that he not only identified more of his models than most of his peers, but he also identified their sports and other interests, mostly on hand written cards.  The first half of today's Dave Martin double features shows some of his unidentified models, most of which are also thematic twofers.  This young man perched on an end table should tick some boxes in the bush department.  Mr. Martin is shown in the inset which was added by an unknown past collector.


  1. If Dave Martin had put down "Mormon Elder" as his profession on his passport, he'd have got straight through customs - which only goes to show that one should never trust first impressions...
