John Barrington is by far the most prolific and best known of the British physique photographers of the 1950s and 60s. Today, we will look at a new side of him that I only recently discovered, i.e., that he was a decent artist who did some nice male nude drawings. I'm also adding some biographical details throughout today's series, but click on the tag and read more from previous posts if you like. He once bragged that he had sex with all his models, something that was not quite the truth, although he certainly bedded a lot of them. All this was while he maintained a home in a leafy London suburb with his wife and twin daughters. I'm not sure if the above photo is a self portrait, but the spots on it make me think so. As you'll see, he apparently favored quantity over quality in his work.
