Helmut Reidmeier by Champion
This shot is one of my all-time favorite physique photos. Helmut Reidmeier (the spelling of his last name has been a subject of debate for years -- this version is my preference) was a popular European model (and a very friendly one, too, by all accounts) known for his nude sessions with John (Paignton) Barrington, but also very much a favorite of Walter Kundzicz, who took this photo. Walter took a trip to to Europe, scouting for fresh models, and took roll after roll of Helmut. While I have labeled this one as a Champion pic for ease of reference, the bulk of the European models were attributed to Walter's studio "THEM" (Treasure House of European Models).
And with that, I'll bid you all good night!
