"A World of Nudes" by Roy Dean

I've posted material by talented photographer Roy Dean before, and it's time for another series.
Today we will look at work from his 1975 book A World of Nudes.  The studio lighting in this
image of a man reaching upward is quite well accomplished.



  1. Remarkable lighting. The pose is unusual, too. Was the model named?

    1. No, Dean does not seem to have published the names of his models, even though his work was legal. A few of them are known, however, because some of his photos were published in Playgirl and other magazines that routinely named the models.

    1. Isn't it? It seems rather original, too, at least something you don't see often.

    2. Yes, I've not seen it before. Very inspiring. His superb physique is nicely complemented by his handsome penis, giving a very powerful masculine feel.
