You may have noticed by now that Ralph Kelly was fond of photographing 
men with broad shoulders.  This shot of Herbert Hansen is a good example.



  1. Man, he has a magnificent torso! The serious look on his face is interesting, and yet again, light swath over his crotch. Am I imagining this, Jerry, or is it a Kelly trademark? Anyway, it's another fantastic serie on a terrific photographer's works. Thanks, Jerry.

    1. You're welcome, B.D. I just did a quick turn through my Kelly collection, and there are definitely a significant number of photos where the crotch is accentuated by his lighting. There are also some where the tan lines make it look like he did, but probably didn't. And then there are those, mostly clothed or pouched, where it isn't evident at all.
