Photo courtsey of Ulli Richter -

Fishers of Men

Having delighted many a fan of muscular men with previous photoshoots for their clothing ranges, Dolce and Gabbana have not disappointed said fans this time either. Steven Klein's photoshoot for Dolce and Gabbana's spring/summer collection has a Spartacus-cum-Sicilian fishermen theme. Grappling with ropes, netting and chains, as well as each other (which I am sure we are all quite familiar with, in one form or another!) the mixture of smooth pretty-boys and hairy, rugged-type models get all sweaty in their range of warm weather wear. Fashion photography is renowned for using kinky, erotica-themed ideas. In this particular shoot the muscular homoeroticism fair ripples off the page! If you are a connoisseur of such imagery, you should check out Coffee, Cake and Kink's selection of Ulli Richter photography, which gives a few, hard lessons to any imitators. (Especially my personal fave 'Hard Labour'. There's no messing with these men!).
