Robert W. Richards in Berlin tonight!

Hey Gang,

If you happen to be in Berlin today, make sure to stop by the Galeries Lafayette and view the exhibit of artwork by the iconic Robert W. Richards.  Robert himself will be there to talk to you, and from all of the video my friends at organizer Servicewerk-Berlin have sent me, he looks to be a real pleasure to get to know!

Ken Dockter by AMG and Dave Martin

I had a request for more of Ken Dockter, which I think denotes a mark of good taste, so here you go, Titan!

Dale Curry by Lynch-Patrick

Who was/were "Lynch-Patrick?"  Got me!  But it's stamped clearly so on the back of the photograph.  Dale Curry needs no introduction, having been a popular model for AMG, Lyle Frisby, Fred Kovert and Spartan in the late 40s/early 50s.

Jimmy Jones

Courtesy of Michael Alago's Facebook page this morning -- "The Fighting Welshman" Jimmy Jones, a boxer from Ohio whose career spanned 1919-1929.  What a handsome man!

Bob Delmonteque by Douglas of Detroit

Bob Delmonteque was a spectacular-looking man all his life -- I got to say Hello! to him at a gallery opening in 2004 and he was stunning at 85 years old! -- but the early photographs of him taken by Douglas Juleff truly presented an inner light that Bob would use to guide him throughout all his life.  Here he is, from the mid-late 1940s.  Superb!

Tom Lauren by unknown

From Vikings Vol. 2, No. 2 -- perhaps by Stan of Sweden?  Definitely Scandinavian!

Jules Bacon by Lon of NY

I can't believe I haven't posted any shots of Jules Bacon before!  The autographed magazine you see below is the latest addition to my collection -- and below that you'll see the uncensored version.

Hello there!

How have you been the past two years?  Mine have been... difficult.  But let's just take a moment and enjoy some photography after this long absence!

Back to the beginning of vintage physique with Tony Sansone --
