Review

“The book conveys a moody atmosphere with its nearly 100% collection of black and white photos that are superbly reproduced and edited by the photographer and by Rizzoli. The photos seem to conjure likenesses to the late Herb Ritts and to Bruce Weber.” ~New York Review of Books
 
Dolce & Gabbana Uomini (the Italian word for men) is a new coffee-table book by the designers and fashion coffee-table book publishers extrodinaire Rizzoli. It is a celebration of men… So this is a great addition to any piece of living-room furniture.” ~New York Magazine

“The ideal body—in pictures.” ~Details

Please don't expect a lot of frontal nudity. There are some hot men, mostly boys though in Dolce Gabbana underwear. I am tired of Tony Ward and he is featured prominently in this book. The photography is quite good, the models quite handsome, but, in the end it's pretty boring for the price.

Format: Hardcover
I felt so excited upon receiving this book, but the passion only lasted halfway through my reading. Most of the pictures are very exquisitely beautiful, but I just can't understand what is with the beach part. Several shots of less famous models (I certainly don't know them) playing along the beach (and several others) are apparently not of the same quality as the first half of the book. And it kind of hindered my whole emotional flow while reading it -- until the nude shots of Chad White picked me up again. And seriously, given all the closefisted picks of big names such as Sam Webb, Clint Mauro and Cory Bond, I see no reason why Tony Ward should get a big mention. Maybe Vivanco has a thing for him, but in my opinion, monochrome pictures just couldn't convey the beauty of the current Ward.

For that matter, I think Bruce Webber's "Roberto Bolle: Athlete in Tights," which attracted some bad reviews, is much better considering that the content is always close to the theme and each picture serves some purpose. But still, I look forward to the David Gandy one. Maybe a coffee table book focused on a single person is easier.

15 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 22, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Uomini is the Italian word for `men' and that is what this beautifully designed book from Rizzoli Publisher is all about. Mariano Vivanco has captured `masculine archetypes, modern Adonis, the hero, the sportsman and the soldier' in this classy portfolio of luxurious black and white and color photographs.

Mariano Vivanco is a fashion photographer originally from Lima, Peru, but he now divides his time between London and New York creating acclaimed images for internationally renowned magazines such as, Dazed & Confused, Vogue Nippon, Vogue Homme Nippon, Numero, Another Magazine, Man About Town, Allure, Details, GQ Italy, L'Uomo Vogue, 10 and 10 Man. He is an expert in his field and for this publication he has gathered some of the top models in the industry and because the underwriter for this portfolio is Dolce & Gabanna, he has most of his models clothed in that fashion creators' underwear!

Vivanco elects to create sculptural images, placing his models in athletic positions not unlike the sculptures found in public places in Rome. The men are all of perfect bodies and faces and the backgrounds and settings of these images are sophisticated and very much in the Italian vein of beauty. This is a book that celebrates the male form that will appeal to all audiences! Grady Harp, March 11
