Gareth Johnson is a writer who I enjoy following on Medium for many reasons. This past week on Medium he had an article entitled, Physique Pictorial continues to fuel our fantasies. The article introduced me to Los Angeles-based photographer, Bob Mizer, who first published in 1951 an all-nude, male magazine; pretty ballsy considering the times. Over the course of his career he would end up photographing thousands of men from a variety of walks of life.
Johnson says in his article that it was Physique Pictorial that first printed the drawings of Touko Laaksone (better known as Tom of Finland) and, which helped launch his career. Mizer passed away in the early 1990s but you can read the full article from Johnson about the man and the magazine on Medium.
You can see a lot more of his work in an article from The Advocate last spring:

For those of you who love Brazil, travel photographer, Giovani Cordioli’s Instagram account is worth checking out. Giovani captures beautiful images of Cariocas (Cariocas are people who live in Rio de Janeiro) and the natural beauty for which the city is so well known.
Most of Cordoli’s photos contain breathtaking images of the natural beauty for which Brazil is famous but my favorite photos are of Rio’s Guanabara Bay.

Shooting has started for the 2018 Red Hot calendar. Now in its fifth year, the organizers of the annual celebration of ginger men shared a video trailer of a shoot in London along with a new Kickstarter fundraiser to make sure it becomes a reality.
This year’s theme is ‘British Boys’ and proceeds raised will help the fight against homophobic bullying by raising money for the Ben Cohen STANDUP foundation. Below I’ve included the YouTube teaser video if you’ve yet to see it.
Towelroad has put out a call for what they refer to as “exceptional print-worthy images that convey the spirit, the people, and the beauty of America’s greatest gay destination,” a.k.a. Provincetown. The images will be used in their fourth annual edition of Ptown Hacks, and will be distributed all summer in more than 100 businesses across town and online. If you are unfamiliar with this publication you can see their 2016 digital edition here.
If you have images you would like to submit for consideration, email photos to email@example.com and include the words “PTOWN HACKS” in the subject bar and body of your email. The original article on Towleroad can be read here.
This photo captures a moment that has been a long time in the making. I have not lounged beach side since Sergio and I visited Miami in late January to escape Boston’s winter. Little did we know at the time that January and February would be more mild than the start of our spring.
In case you missed it, the blog Accidental Bear shared photos of the very handsome model arlier this week. The photos are fairly revealing or to put it more bluntly, NSFW. However, I think Matteo is incredibly handsome and wanted to share this one in particular. You can see the series in the link below.
