When one goes looking for non-nudes or G-rated photos by Denny Denfield, the pickings 
are quite slim.  Why?  Probably because as an amateur who did photography for personal
 enjoyment, Mr. Denfield did not have to worry about the draconian legal measures taken 
against those who publicly displayed or commercially distributed such material.  
Oddly, Denny Denfield stopped his nude photography in 1967, about when it became 
legal to do those things, for reasons I haven't been able to discern. 

Disclosure:  I cropped a large white margin from this picture to make it 
fit the blog page better.  I did not alter the central image itself.



  1. As you note, Denny Denfield was lucky enough to work with some of the greatest postwar models and has left us with a wonderful collection of photographs. His outdoor colour photos are particularly striking. However, I'm really drawn to this series of photos which have a real charm. This is my favourite - such a handsome guy. It may be fanciful on my part but he reminds me a little of the wonderful Bill Grant.

    1. Yes, he is best known for his outdoor work and use of color.
