Interview Sessions: Stanley Stellar

As part of a new project I'm documenting the stories of gay men from the ages of 16 to ??:

Stanley Stellar is a well known New York photographer responsible for works such as: Stellar Men and photographs in Provocateur. He is the first of the Interview Sessions.

The Mid 1960's, Christopher Street & Cruising.

Stanley has a lot more to stay. More sessions to come.

Lucky you! I love Stellar's photos. A friend gave me "Stellar Men" for my b'day a few years ago. I love the mixture of eroticism and emotional intimacy in them.

Awesome project! Gay men from ages 16 to ?? Do you mean all gay men? Or just the ones who email you and ask you to post more shirtless photos?

If you go to the site, click on Images, click on Studio, and then look for "Stephen (Blue Floor)"... that's me. Stanley has taken some of my favorite pictures of me because in the modeling session, he gets me. Not sure how else to explain it. It's sexually charged but also totally relaxed.

This is awesome Eric. I have long thought about the need for something like this. However, I don't have the mad skills that you have.

I look forward to seeing more.
