About the Book
Stéphane is a wonder. He probably has the tightest, fittest body I've ever photographed. And, he can do amazing things with that body... from aerial acrobatics to graceful contortions, gymnastics, climbing, leaping... This book is the result of one magical morning in December, when I was treated to a very special private performance by this sexy man with the hot European accent. The air temperatures were probably in the 40's, but the sexual energy captured is off the scale!
If this book were a movie, it would be rated NC17!
Photography is my art, and one branch of that art is working with the male physique. The shapes, contours, tones, and textures. A sculptural element. How light plays across a muscle, or reflects in the hair. A glint in the eye. A playful moment. How the figure relates to, or contrasts with, the surroundings. The mimicking of shapes. The strength of man mirrored in the environment - the relationships that are captured. A moment in time. A sexy moment in time... I've been lucky... my work has captured some attention recently. There have been a couple of exhibits, inclusion is several anthology photography books, and even a few Magazine covers. Don't get me wrong - I love that attention, but it's not why I create. I create for me, and for the models. I create to push myself - to think about things differently, to see things in a new light. And now I am creating for you - I hope you enjoy this look into my world! -Mark
