Beautiful book with beautiful men in all types of settings. This guys are in top physical condition. Lots of beautiful buns. Very well put together both pictorially and construction-ally. Just a little disappointed that there was just one frontal shot in the entire book.

In NATURAL BEAUTY: THE CLASSIC MALE NUDE Stephan Niederwieser has edited the works from fifteen photographic artists of the male nude in a collection of images that do not rely on the usual emphasis of genitalia size found in many monographs that focus on full frontal nudity. Instead the famous photographers selected here are chosen for their sophistication with the camera in celebrating the male form without the need to draw focus to the perineum. The photographers whose works are represented here, each with a very brief but poignant biographical note are Michael Reh, Christopher Makos, Dylan Rosser, Seva Galkin, Alex Bego, FKurt R. Brown, Joakim Karlsson, Mark Henderson, Louis LaSalle, Fred Goudon, Sandro Bross, Roberto Chiovitti, 'Epyrean Photography (the moniker for Andre DeLoach) Marcus Mok, and Kevin McDermott. David Leddick, an exceptional artist and writer himself, provides the Foreword that addresses the history of the male form in history.
What follows are full page images of some of the most beautiful male models ever assembled. The emphasis is on the trained physique, distinctive faces, muscular legs and buttocks, seductive eyes, and the body at rest or in motion: the fascinating aspect of a collection such as this is the ability to compare and contrast the way different artists pose, drape, expose, add lighting, define maleness and manage to keep the subject the beauty of the classic male form - consistencies and idiosyncrasies - which appears to be the goal in creating this celebration of the male nude. it is artful, it is eloquent , and it would be completely satisfying to all audiences. As one quote about the book states 'NATURAL BEAUTY takes us on an exciting journey ... and iit reminds us of the fact that no artist would be able to create such a thing as perfection, if nature hadn't shown him how it works. Cause every single man in this stunning coffee table book is a true piece of divine art.'
