    I am amazed by the modernity of the composition.
    The strange effects on the border add an extra beauty to the whole picture.

    He is probably very aware of the artistic tradition he is following - but he is also the man who runs the outfit, stripping off for his own portrait. Makes him seem a tad vulnerable. There's an element of tortured sole in his expression too. I wonder if he had greater aspirations.

    Brilliant! Makes me want to take portraits of men without shirts!
    Although women without shirts would be ok too..

  14. Sparrowsalvage 32 months ago | reply

    I approve of both your ideas, Mr.Eastman.

    Poor guy. Born before the iPhone, Flickr and the ability to take all the shirtless pictures you want...
