This project Men of Color- Vol 2 (A grown and sexy journey using poetry and photography) is the second coffee table book in the men of color erotic series featuring over 22 models, over 14 original poems, over 200 color / bw photographs and over 100 pages.
As a bonus, introducing prolific self photographer, Gabriel (New Vision) who delivers a glimpse of his profound talent both in front and behind the camera.
Again, using self written poetry and photography to capture real brothers in erotic poses, the focus continues on the mental, physical and untapped raw sex appeal.
Each has his own compelling story to tell visually via poetry and eroticism, which has been captured, boxed, and mass-produced to sell everything from shoes, clothes, liquor and to yes sex. However, often times overlooked is the true essence of the man which lay hidden underneath the swagger, the muscles, the bald head, the Caesar and fade cuts, the six pack…the suit, the uniform, the hip hop gear, the cars, the jewelry, friends and lovers..….A Man with dreams, emotion, fears, successes, a deep real love.
Most having never modeled come nationally and internationally come from various heritages and ancestry…European, African, Indian, Latin. Each one helped bring his own sex appeal in each picture and by each poem.
Get comfortable...Relax... Light some candles...Experience real photography and real poetry for the grown and sexy.
Sex Appeal, Color and Imagery…What would life be without it?
Northern CA based published freelance photographer and project manager with over 17 yrs experience focusing on lifestyle photography using real people in natural settings, natural lighting. I capture the sensual realism in our lives of men and women. It's that untapped sex appeal that's we each have but often times overlooked. The shots in my port have not been enhanced and the majority of models having never been shot prior as I love realism period in all respects. As I've learned from the focus group I had for MOC V1...people want and crave realism in photography and life. Plainly put...Photoshop is not on my list of to do items after a photoshoot. An agency wants to see the real you, not a manufactured you that doesn't match you in person. My shots are reality...what I capture is what you see, no chasers.
