Lon of New York is said to have begun his nude male photography around 1936 at the urging of
David Asnis, a fashion model who posed for him early and often. A man of his times, he
incorporated a lot of Classical influences, not the least of which was the use of columns in his photos. Today we'll look at 10 of this type, starting with Richard Kirchner with a column that appears at least two more times in today's series. See the last post for an almost folkloric story about it.
