It is a statement of how times have changed that photographic books of the male nude can now be displayed unabashedly in store front windows. That albums with male couples au naturelle should also feature is even more significant. Within the U.S., Austalia, N.Z.,or the U.K. there is hardly a gay man who has not heard of Bob Paris and Rod Jackson. This role model couple in 1994 released a bestselling detailed autobiography of their relationship and love affair. Blessed with good looks and intellectual curiosity the bestseller "Straight froom the heart" made them not only more famous but unofficial spokesmen for gay couples all over the world. Sadly it was not to last and they announced an amicable separation early in 1997. Prior to all this they willing made themselves available for a photo shoot as subjects for a portfolio by Herb Ritts, one of the most celebrated photographers of the male nude in America today. This photographic album "Duo" with its stunning photography is the outcome of that shoot and captures much of the beauty of the male form(a deux) at every conceivable angle. It must have helped the photographer that both his subjects are professional body builders. Every sinew and bicep does not go unnoticed or unpictured. I also liked that no colour frames were pictured and that the monochrome black & white seemed to give a more stark minimalist ambience to the background which placed more emphasis on the subjects in the foreground. It also appears to have been shot at a time when the two principal models were very much in love. Though most of the pictures are obviously posed there is no masking their obvious attraction to one another. This is the one main factor that has probably made this book so popular.Read more ›

Great photography. Very tasteful and beautifully done. It shows the beauty of the male human body, also the great tenderness between Rod & Bob. I admire their courage. They are an amazing couple. I envy their relationship & love.
