The men in this book are so beautiful and hot! The photogragphy is amazing. The colors are so rich and vibrant! Looking at the photoghraphs made it seem like the men were ready to jump off the page. Maybe that's just wishful thinking! My only complaint is that I would like to have seen more different men. The men in the book are beautiful and very hot, but there are several pictures of the same men. Thus only 4 stars. That, and the book is too short. Of course I would have preferred it to be longer and thicker. Pun intended! Anyone intrested in erotic male photography has to add this to their collection. His work in this collection is similar to his other books, except in this one the colors really pop off the page.

Mark Henderson comes to his passion for photography with the credentials of an art historian, a fact that gives him a special insight as to the creation of his lushly colorful photographs informed by the traditions of making art, joining color to theme, and finding memento mori or still life compositions in the manner of the great masters. In his previous three successful monographs - HOUSEHOLD IDOLS, SUBURBAN PLEASURES and POOLSIDE he concentrated his eye and his compositions on the interiors of his home in Los Angeles, his very private swimming pool in Texas, moving his impeccably handsome models into the daylight of indoors and outdoors.

In this his latest's monograph LUMINOSITY published by Bruno Gmünder Verlag GmbH Henderson takes a giant step forward. While continuing his sensitive approach to light in bathing his models with natural light rather than imitation studio light, and to color by enhancing the colors with digital computer assistance, his courage to emphasize full frontal nudity has become more evident in this volume. Not only are his models in seductive poses and often engage the viewer's eye with highly charged sexuality, but now most of the models are shown in full tumescence. And with these particular models that aspect becomes a notable advance for Henderson's work. These images are highly erotically charged but at the same time there is nothing lurid in Henderson's election to emphasize this concept. His respect for his models and their obvious respect for his art produces very sensuous portraits that remain in the field of Fine Art. The title of this book - LUMINOSITY - describes both Henderson's artistic vantage and also the unveiling of a newly frank and open approach to his subject matter. Grady Harp, April 12

Henderson has once again launched a new tremendously beautiful collection of images that is hard to contain in one book. What a bright and shining collection of men who are most handsome under his lens . I highly recommend this colorful and wonder -filled book .

I've come across my fair share of cheap compilations of male nude photos self-branded as lavish arts, and books by Mark Henderson are surely nothing like them. Innocent and seductive at once, his models are masculine, good-looking, yet with a touch of fragility -- possibly under the influence of Henderson's lush color pallette and clean composition. Some pages stand out more than others, and I especially like those in which models are portrayed with a little bit of clothes to illustrate their bodies -- as opposed to the stark naked. But again, maybe it's impossible to find a literally perfect coffe table book. That said, this one, as those from Henderson before and after, is close enough. I'll continue to collect his works.

we are all, Mark Henderson fans...it's impossible not to be!...he is the top of the line master of male beauty...
...but the best thing about a Mark Henderson book/ among so, so many/ is its artistic presence...
...this new book, LUMINOSITY ,adds to his fame,............ as it adds to our jaw dropping enjoyment.....he really knows how to photograph...but one of the hardest things to achieve here, is to create a style.........and, mark has style written all over him...
he's a classy artist, and his work, it is at the pinnacle............but he is always finding new facets, even new ways of seeing men.......

i promised myself i wouldn't gush over the men...but i'm weak....and they are so strong.....so virile....so sexually fixating...no one else, has this kind of man to work with............my only comparison would be in those thrilling COLT years...of Jim French...

and...no one else seems to be able to bring us such sheer perfection....his generosity is our gain ....I have to say, his publisher, Bruno Gmuender, is so lucky to have him.....they don't even know, how lucky....
....Mark makes them look so stupendous...in a way, it's like MGM, again......the luster he brings, the stars he creates, all for us..... we the wide eyed audience.....grateful for a glimpse of heaven...

thanks, Mark, for another hit!......BEAU aka/ kevin king

Mark Henderson is in a class by himself and has proven it with every stunning book he has published. His photography exhibits, class, imaginative creativity, stunning art direction, and with the most drop-dead gorgeous models both new and familiar imaginable other than viewing the subject matter from well-known DVD studios. This and his past books are a must to grace your coffee table and to WOW your discriminate friends!
