About the Book
Artists have supplied the standard for male beauty since the beginnings of western civilization. "MALE FORM" is a collection of photographs and interpretations of such standards of male form and beauty, as seen through a traveller's eyes. Some such images are renowned, and others unfamiliar. What is constant, however, is the strength and beauty of the male form, which is both inspired and inspiring.
Michael P. Westman has travelled in six continents. His love of travel and photography go hand in hand, both of which he became interested in at an early age. He studied at the University of California, Los Angeles, University of California, Irvine, and the University of Barcelona. Enamored with Spain, he travels there as much as possible, while spending the rest of his time on other treks or at his home in California. Always up for an adventure, and always with his camera, Michael still has many spots on his travel "wish list" of places to visit and photograph. Antarctica (which would make up the seventh continent) being one of them.
