“MEN PURE” is a perfect projection screen for role-play, juggling clichés with an often-humorous look at seemingly irrefutable conventional aesthetic standards.
The 120 page large-format volume “MEN PURE” is an extended version of the best-selling monograph book “ALPHA MALES”. It features a wide selection of male models from all over the world. Men of various ethnic backgrounds and very different body types, macho bodybuilders and lean dancers. Enjoy whimsical gender-play and powerful masculinity.
Photographer Henning von Berg is dedicated to “Character Portraits” and “Nude Studies”.
Compositions with people in buildings/landscapes at natural light conditions are his specialty. He prefers to work with female/male amateurs. His most favorite photography subjects are aristocrats and prostitutes, disabled people and athletes, common folks and celebrities. Coming from a very traditional family background, HvB often intentionally breaks taboos and rules to open new perspectives.
Meanwhile, the self-taught photographer can look back on more then four hundred eighty publications on all continents. HvB's most eye-catching images are included in 49 anthology books and 4 monograph books. After 44 exhibitions in galleries and museums, his works are also sold at fine art photography auctions.
