Joe HanssenA Bold Continuation of a Personal Obsession!
I found words hard to come by when reviewing and describing Greg Gorman's last all male nude photography book called AS I SEE IT. Now he presents us with a new book of male nude photography starring "Greg Knudson" continuing his personal obsession with the male nude. Again, I'm at a loss for words. There are so many words I could use to describe this new body of work of his; sexy, erotic, stunning, glamorous, bold, and perhaps pornographic. It's the first time that the exquisite art of photography Gorman is so well-known for (perfect lighting, flawless posing, excellent composition) has been combined to reveal the very intimate and very personal essence of one male model. It's unmatched for its raw sexuality & beauty.
There are over 250 photographs of Greg Knudson that were taken all over the world, from California, to Italy, to Germany, and France over a period of one year. These are scenic & delightful images that evolved between the artist and his subject. Only a mutual trust and admiration could permit such intimate and revealing photos. There are many striking photos of Greg fully clothed and looking like a fashion model, but the ones that will bring a gasp, and a definite second glance by most viewers, will be the many fully aroused shots of this well-endowed model. Greg has a very slight muscular body that is adorned with many tattoos. He has the look, the attitude, the sexiness, and beauty to have a book entirely devoted to just him.
I think both men and women of all ages will truly enjoy this new book. There may be comparisons to other photographers' books on this one, but make no mistake about it, this is a FIRST in male nude photography from a world renowned photographer. This has got to be the boldest compilation of images presented by any photographer today, who has the reputation of being one of the most sought after and admired photographers of our time. A masterful achievement of sexuality and art. As with his previous book AS I SEE IT, I wish I could give this one more than five stars. This attractively produced book, from it's green cloth cover, to it's flawlessly reproduced black and white photographs, make it a must for any collector's library. This is a book not to be missed! Highest Recommendation!
