In the pre-Stonewall era before the advent of the gay rights
movement, male nude photography was kept underground. Photographers
feared police confiscation, harassment, and worse. This volume
uncovers the work of ten different photographers produced during
this suppressive period--images hidden away for a generation in
private collections and closed archives. The majority have never
been published. A full range of styles is included: gleaming muscle
gods shot in the physique magazine style, sun-dappled outdoor nudes
from the 1960s, and artful black-and-white studio portraits by
George Platt Lynes. Uncovered restores a lost chapter to the
history of the male nude photograph and reintroduces more than one
hundred unsung classics of male erotic photography to the world.
