When I first opened to these black and white images, it felt like a visual dream--moving me in and out of a steamy locker room. One of my favorite photos is of a man holding a rugby ball, concealing his member, positioned against the backdrop of a cloudy sky. Some other images that stick in my mind: a couple of nude men embracing each other; a striking photograph of one man's handsome face in another's lap; the muscular sweet cheeks of a man standing against a locker room wall.
This sort of homoerotica can be enjoyed by both men and women (I especially enjoy the few delicious erect surprises throughout the book). Duran captures some photos from rooftops and balconies which not only gives me a view of Paris, but also provides an industrial, sadio-masochistic, blood-rushed excitement.
I'm pleased to have added Tony Duran's Diuex du Stade to my coffee table collection. This book properly defines and absorbs the male form as I desire: athletic, nude, and comely.
The photographs are taken in the Paris Rugby Stadium - the Stade Français Paris - and the interplay between the playing spaces and thee niches for relaxation gives us the complete view of how athletes perform and train and interact. And in presenting the athletes in this very natural manner Duran manages to compose some of the most sensual images available. It is photographic art of the highest order. Grady Harp, January 11
The black & white photos take your breath away. Don't look for models from the 2005 edition, however. I only noticed two repeat performers. I'm happy with the new crop, though. Magnificent!

This is an amazing book. The men on the cover were the main reason I bought it, two beautiful brothers, and they are throughout the book, but the other athletes are great. Read morePublished on December 10, 2012 by Charles A. Mitchem
