John Tristram -- ah, my love... -- by Scott of London
John was a competitive bodybuilder from England who would move to the United States circa 1960 and settle in Southern California, where he became a favorite of AMG's Bob Mizer. Before that happened, though, he was immortalized by the infamous Tom Nicoll, aka Scott of London.
Scott squeezed his models into the tightest, shortest white shorts -- tightest, form-fittingest white sailor pants -- and possibly the world's smallest posing pouches, and got them to smile and flex their way into your heart. The leather-clad biker was also a photo-fetish of Scott's (he even spurred the motorcycle fetish in the work of Tom of Finland, when they first met).
Here are just a few shots of John, by Tom...
[Oh, how I love Johnny Tristram.... *sigh!*]
