Male Nude Now


About this product

Male Nude Now: New Visions for the 21st Century. by David Leddick, 2001. Paperback, 224 pages. As images of men’s bodies have proliferated in pop culture and advertising during the past decade, many artists and photographers have taken up the male nude as a primary subject. Recent work has sparked controversy as well as praise for its shocking frankness, and the line between art and pornography has become increasingly difficult to define. New digital technologies have brought about new ways of representing the body, and we are now faced with a multiplicity of eroticisms, previously unexplored channels of desire, and more inclusive and varied body ideals. Feature Artists Include Marc Baptiste, Clive Barker, Cecily Brown, Chuck Close, Nan Goldin, Greg Gorman, David Hockney, Pierre et Gilles, Wolfgang Tillmans, Ellen von Unwerth and more.
