Pinup pose


The pose is borrowed from World War II pinup girls and a bit cliched,
but Bob Mizer of AMG did a great job on this shot of Bob.

  1. Not very heavily oiled, if at all. Yet his body glows. Interesting shadow pattern under his body. Did he ever smile?

    1. Yes, but not very often on camera from what I can tell.

  2. Bob Mizer was clearly making a very definite and even provocative statement in putting Bob McCune in this pose. I have more than a sneaking regard for many of these straight bodybuilders and athletes who posed for openly gay photographers knowing to what purpose their work would be put - and perhaps demonstrates that societal disapproval of homosexuality was a social construct and not organic. Many of the models of this time were straight and didn't seem to give a damn.

    1. What you say about some models not caring about their pictures being pitched to gays is true. Dan Lurie even joked about it in his memoire.
