As images of men's bodies have proliferated in pop culture and advertising during the past decade, many artists and photographers have taken up the male nude as a primary subject. Recent work has sparked controversy as well as praise for its shocking frankness, and the line between art and pornography has become increasingly difficult to define. New digital technologies have brought about new ways of representing the body, and we are now faced with a multiplicity of eroticisms, previously unexplored channels of desire, and more inclusive and varied body ideals.

Male Nudes Now offers an essential guide through this new territory with more than 240 fresh and provocative images. Featuring contemporary work, mostly unpublished, this important sourcebook showcases a dynamic mix of visionaries, from established masters to breakthrough newcomers.

Review:

"Leddick's book is remarkable on two fronts...across the board, the visual comparisons are as fascinating as the lives lived."--New Orleans Times-Picayune

"This book combines stories and photographs of the men who did it first. It's like a buried treasure one only finds 20,000 leagues under the sea."--Bruce Weber
