Further complicating J. Brian's career history is the fact that he did publish, under
yet another trade name, during the posing strap era. This somewhat artistic photo
of Nick Harris was under the Galerie Vitruvian brand. (In case you don't remember,
Vitruvian was DaVinci's famous spread eagle nude male figure.) At least one of J. Brian's
models said that late in his career he was frequently drunk and incapacitated on the set,
leaving the models to set up the shots themselves and hope he could trip the shutter.
