There is also a nice new feature in this issue - Richard Stabbert, celebrated for his inclusion in Art of Man is presented with his poetry and his atmospheric photographs along side the paintings they inspired. It is a very nice touch to combine the two forms of art by the same artist in this sensitive presentation.
The art of West Phillips focuses on men in backgrounds from Beijing, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Virginia and Miami Beach - classically sensuous models in very natural settings. Marc Kiska from both France and Norway offers `enhanced' photographs - his models are incorporated in manipulated settings like myths or fantasies. Joan Alsina from Spain alters the integument of his models providing a sculptural accent along with some additional materials that mimic the flow of the human body. Aurelio Monge, also from Spain, places his models in mythological configurations André DeLoach `s stunning photographs celebrate the athletic male form, even at times in motion. The art history article in this issue is a very complete overview of the importance of Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden that includes many images form both the Taormina series as well as lesser known images.
In all this Volume 5 keeps the climb to the top of photographic publications solid. The male form is celebrated around the world, both now and in history, by some very gifted artists of their craft. Grady Harp, September 14
