4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 24, 2005
Format: Hardcover
OPUS DECORUM is a book without words. This is simply a portfolio of the artistry of Jim French, one of the more respected art photographers of the male nude. French's proclivity is for the massive muscular male captured wither in nature or in studio, always with an eye for light and shadow and settings that enhance the bulk of his models.

These are powerful images from Fire Island to Hawaii to Malibu to the studio. His models are graciously credited in the back of this portfolio along with the location and year when the photo session occurred. French seems to favor the body in extremis as far as posing. At times he allows his models to be at rest, but more often he has them engaging in some source of physical exertion that emphasizes the mass of the worked male physique. They are truly the "Work of the Gods" of the title.

The book is well designed and the photography is reproduced on the finest paper. For those who admire the study of the nude, this is a valuable addition to the library. Grady Harp, March 05

Format: Hardcover
If you enjoy classic photography, especially beautiful people set against artistic backgrounds, then this book is for you.
Mr. French's models tend to be handsome, muscular men at the height of their appeal ( mid twenties to forty). He poses them in classic positions with artistic props.
This book is no exception.
If you collect the photography of Herb Ritts or Scavullo this book belongs along them in your collection.
