Bruce Weber's Revolution
Here's that 1977 shot of athlete/model Jeff Aquilon that helped Bruce Weber revolutionize the image of the male in print media... and made him the most influential photographer of the sensualized, modern male (who is clearly comfortable in his role as an object of desire).
We can thank Calvin Klein for being the first visionary that kept Mr. Weber and an endless parade of male models happily working to permanently shift the balance of social & sexual politics.
His eye has no rival in spite of a trillion global shutterbugs coaxing men out of their clothes on a daily basis.
