About this Item

1st Printing. 1 pages. Published in 1980. Rare David Ashfield and Kurt Deitrick collectible item. An original vintage color photographic print of David Ashfield, photographed by Kurt Deitrick. David Ashfield was one of Kurt Deitrick's most celebrated models and one of the most popular male-nude models of the 1980's. The print measures 5 X 7 inches and is encased in an oversize thick protective plastic sheet. It shows the boyishly handsome, lean, muscular, and well-endowed David Ashfield at the peak of his beauty in one of his most beautiful poses, a full-frontal, fully erect shot. Why beautiful? According to Peter Hujar, the (still-very-controversial) erection is the human male body in its most beautiful state. It is the "middle" state between normal/"soft" and orgasm/"explosive", when the human male, not just the body, becomes "state-less", however fleetingly. This is not a digital print or a later, contemporary print but was printed directly from the original negatives in the 1980's, at the time of first publication. Beautifully developed, with great clarity and warm tones, on Kodak photographic paper. This is the genuine article, an absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for David Ashfield, Kurt Deitrick, and erotic art photography collectors. This original vintage color photographic print is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the print available online, is eminently suitable for framing, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. One of the iconic American male-nude models of the 20th century. A fine print. (SEE ALSO OTHER KURT DEITRICK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 18659
