Behold the glimmering gods of Tony Duran's Dieux du Stade.

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.

This book was a fun present for my bride-to-be friend who is an avid photographer. I gave it to her as a bachelorette gift. The photographs are sensuous not vulgar, and though erotic, still fine art. (Basically, still safe to have on the coffee table when parents visit.) We still went through the book giggling and drooling at the French rugby team like best friends at a slumber party! However, as a photographer, she said she was very impressed not only with the photographer's eye for form and mastering sexy without being crude, but also with the overall quality and printing of the book. She said that this is definitely one of the best photography books she has in her collection. Now she just needs a coffee table! (Ha! It's on her wedding registry!)

A great book. Some great sexy masculine men. Wish more of them showed some dick. It's in black and white but the bodies are wonderful. Such cute firm butts! Fantasy material and a nice coffee table book -unless Mum pops in.!

By now the very popular series DIEUX DU STADE: GODS OF THE STADIUM is well known and photographer Tony Duran has moved onto other levels of using his art of photography to advertise and glamorize models throughout the world. Yet every year we are gifted with his continuing series of athletes in action, brilliant male specimens going about training or displaying their hard won physiques. Duran's models are often nude but rarely does he show frontal nudity. His emphasis is on the magic of performance these well trained athletes demonstrate. In his word's 'I brought back every memory as an athlete to this project. Coaching, focus, passion, and a bit of aggression were all things these players could relate to. For once I didn't have to look at a bunching dress or an uptight publicist. It was mano a mano. Look at the camera; push your shoulders down. Jump! Jump ! Jump! In the fashion world I am a bull. In this world, I am a coach. It is all about perception. It was one of the easiest and most enjoyable shoots I have ever accomplished.'

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

Superb pictures. Great quality. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the athletic physiques of top male athletes. Not necessarily a coffee table book, but I guess that all depends on who u have coming over for coffee.
