From the art of the ancient Greeks to today's high-fashion photography, the male body has always been the object of fascination. Adonis brings together a selection of the most exciting and significant male erotic photography taken by some of the century's greatest photographers, from Cecil Beaton to Herb Ritts. It is a unique example of how this kind of photography has evolved, illustrating how techniques, styles, and fashions have changed over the decades.
Featured are Guglielmo Pluschow's circa 1900 work, Andy Warhol's stark Torso from 1977, Robert Mapplethorpe's superb black-and-white Thomas from 1986, and Herb Ritts's 1990 Duo IV, where two male bodies take on the appearance of a landscape.
