Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
No one knows how to find handsome, machismo, sensual men like Kristen Bjorn does. He is a photographer in a league by himself. Over the years he has continually brought us beautiful, desirable men from around the world. This collection of all color nude images are of some of his best looking men. All of them have been filmed by Bjorn and appeared in his many erotic videos. Bjorn is a perfectionist whose technical brilliance makes most of these images seem three dimensional. He knows how to bring out the best in each of his models. This is a beautiful book, and at 120 pages, is larger than most photo books being published. If you're a fan of Bjorn's work, you'll appreciate this new book, or experience the excitement if you are a first time viewer of his talented work. One of the best!

Format: Hardcover
Kristen Bjorn is probably the most successful and highly respected creator of filmed male erotica. He has traveled the globe searching and successfully finding the tanned and sculpted men of the Adonis category that fill the pages of this book. Unlike many other photographers of the male physique, Bjorn goes beyond the at times plastic surface of gratuitous suggestion and allows his models to be grouped or isolated in poses that, while never entering the realm of graphic interaction, do parade the men in the aroused state.

Such subject matter is not without precedent: many of our famous contemporary artists such as Odd Nerdrum, Paul Cadmus, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Duane Michaels have incidental use of the male 'at attention'. But it is Bjorn's sensitive eye for composition, lighting, and environmental locations that allows him to free his models to explore their natural state of sexuality.

Sadly, there is no accompanying essay about the artist to accompany this full color portfolio, but hopefully with time authors will have equal courage as Bjorn to discuss what Kristen Bjorn courageously presents as art. Grady Harp, March 05

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

"Kristen Bjorn was born in London, England on 12 October 1957. He grew up in Washington DC and at the age of eighteen he left the USA, and lived in numerous different countries over the following seventeen years. Kristen started his career as a Falcon [Studios] model in 1981, and within two years later he became one of the foremost photographers of the male nude for several international publications. In 1989, Kristen released his first gay erotic video CARNIVAL IN RIO, which was filmed at his home base in Brazil. Over the past 10 years, Kristen has toured the globe, and has created some of the world's best gay erotic video in such diverse locations as Brazil, The Dominican Republic, USA, French Canada, Australia, Venezuela, Hungary, Cuba, and Costa Rica. His work can also be seen on his website kristenbjorn.com."--from Men of Kristen Bjorn (Paperback), ISBN 3-86187-676-0, © 2004 Bruno Gmünder Verlag (Editor & Publisher); photographs © Kristen Bjorn (Photographer), U.S.A., 2000
