Overview

Fully Exposed is a pioneering cultural history of the photography of the male nude which sets the photographer and the model within our cultural and historical perceptions and prejudices. This second edition extends the book's coverage so that the story from the beginnings of the medium to the present day is complete.
Fully Exposed is lavishly illustrated with over two hundred and fifty photographs,many of them new to this edition. Different chapters discuss how the male nude has been used by artists, the way it has been treated in the popular press,in relation to British colonialism and scientific ideology. It also discusses 'private pictures' taken at home or acquired as erotic material by the private collector. A final chapter brings the book up-to-date and discusses the male nude in the nineties.
The combination of art criticism and photographic essay make this an unusual and important book both for academics and the general reader.

Lavishly illustrated with over 200 photos, this volume tells not only one but multiple histories of the production of images of the male nude, setting the photographer and the model within our cultural and historical perception, and prejudices. Includes the work of Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, and Robert Mapplethorpe, among others.
