The artists included here are Guy Yechiely form Tel Aviv whose sensitive works address the conflict of the area in which he lives. These are soldiers caring for each other, men at games - approaching cinematic - and with gloriously rich color. Karl Lakolak blends photography with painting in his current works - made while at Paris 1 University - incorporate the male figure as though on a canvas, painted luxuriously with rich, passionate colors. He erases the line between painting and photography, choosing instead to make them one. Alexey Klimov is a freelance photographer from Kaliningrad (between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea) whose photographs reflect the Grecian approach to the figure. In both luminous black and white and in color be sensuously lights his models and the results are images that allow an interplay of light and shadow to enhance male beauty. marc antonio (the artist's preferred spelling) is from Germany and in this collection he places his subjects in fascinating spaces - architectural ruins, waterfalls, forests and draped over huge pipes. Using both black and white and rich color he is unafraid to include frontal nudity, not as a focus, but as completion of his artistic statement. Umberto Federico is from Munich (his parents are from Poland and from Italy) often includes an element of fantastical light as they draw interest to the male form. His images emphasize the soft aspect of manhood and his models are often involved with fabric.
As with every issue there is an historical article, this issue's personality is Louis-Jean Baptiste Igout, a lesser known name but still an important contributor to the development of not only photographic art but also as a supplier of images in the form of photographs that were sold to painters of the Ecole des Beaux-Art who used his images in place of the more expensive live models! The issues closes with a Vintage Collection which not only offers excellent images of early photography but also explains the purpose of this quarterly to both the reader and to photographers who are searching for audiences for their work. This is a superb issue that will appeal to a very large audience. Grady Harp, December 14
