Dale H. from Odessa, Texas wrote in and asked me to do a series of my top 20
American classic era physique photographers. I said, "How about top ten?" We
compromised on the top 12. (Yes, I'm a tough negotiator.) They will be presented
in alphabetical order so as not to imply that some are better than others, even though
they may be. We start with a color photo by AMG's Bob Mizer of Rick Early.
Oh, I almost forgot. The Europeans will appear in a few days.
The lighting brings out the male's body very well here. And I like the comfortable casualness of the pose.ReplyDelete
This may be my favorite Mizer color shot.Delete
From the hairstyle, I hazard this was taken in anticipation of full frontal legalization and circulated later. Bob Mizer takes full advantage of it with this pose. I am now trying to identify which battle ship had garden furniture on the poop deck.ReplyDelete
I agree with your dating of the photo. Mizer's later color work, imo, tended to be more lurid in terms of both color saturation and theme.Delete
