The Physique Photographs of Bruce of L.A.
But Bob Mizer wasn't the only physique photographer selling semi-nudes to gay men. There was also the legendary Bruce of L.A.
Some of his models adopt the standard bodybuilder's flex, but there are also relaxed informal poses, like this older hunk reclining on a table.
He died in 1974, but his influence lives on in the work of artists like Robert Mapplethorpe and Bruce Weber.
