Hair: Hairy Men in Gay Art Hardcover – June 1, 2010
Top Customer Reviews
What makes this book a pleasure to read and observe is the mixture of photography with illustration and with frank cartoons, such as those made famous by Tom of Finland. Among the many fine photographers represented here by their more unshaven models are Dylan Rosser, Tom Bianchi, Joe Oppedisano, Felix Drobek, Jim Kempster himself, and Jeff Palmer as the better known ones, given space along side the very creative photographers Burt Sun, Isauro Cairo, Joan Crisol, Bubba Clicks, and Vincent Keith - to mention only a few. In the field of raunch art, beside that of Tom of Finland, are both back and white and full color images by 'The Hun', Sepp of Vienna, Charlie Hunter, Harvey Redding, Rafael Lopez, Xavier Gicquel, and Fred Bisonnes. Artists, in film and in drawing, are from around the world and represent some of the most entertaining statements on the subject that have been collected.
There is humor in abundance here, as well as a lot of eroticism, mixed with some very beautiful photographic images of models who shun the razor. It makes a big impact and will definitely be a collector's item for Bears and those who love them. A fascinating and edgy book, beautifully designed and produced. Grady Harp, June 10
Each photographer is given a few pages; offering the reader barely a taste of their talent. In fact, unless you're simply trying to make up your mind about which Gmunder volumes you should pick up or who to follow in this genre of photography, paging through Hair is kind of like stopping by a friend's house when he's cooking your favorite meal - but knowing that you can't stay for dinner. The images are excellent, the men are hot, and the production value is top-notch. And yet it leaves you wanting more.
Perhaps that's the idea. The ultimate tease, it leaves you eager and wanting for more.
Which isn't always a bad thing.
Many of the subjects are hot - ALL of them are hairy - but even though I love hairy men, I did not find it erotic. For those of you who love BEARS, this will be a great find, as nearly every photo and drawing in it is of a chunky, often chubby bear, some of whom are attractive even for those of us who don't care much for bears.
I could say more, but I wanted this review to be short and to the point. If you love naked bears you'll like this book. If you're looking for hot, muscular, well-endowed HAIRY studs, you should not spend your money on this otherwise nicely conceived book. They should have titled it, simply, "Bears".
