Click on Dan Lurie's label at right to see my previous posts on this fascinating character. A successful businessman, he never denied having posed nude early in his career. He even said that he and other bodybuilders knew that Earle Forbes and some of the other New York photographers were gay and pitched the nudes to gays. Mr. Lurie said, "We didn't care. They made the best pictures for us."
This particular photo doesn't quite match the style of any of those great photographers.
