three days in California

About the Book
Anton is the epitome of midwestern charm... upbeat, friendly to a fault, wholesome (although with a teasing playful streak a mile wide)... He's so handsome and full of life strangers stop him on the street to tell him he's beautiful! You can add photographer Mark Grantham to Anton's legion of admirers. Devour this selection of images from their collaboration, covering multiple locations and themes created over a 3 day visit to California. Rated [R] for sexual themes!
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
