Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
One thing is certain: The world of gay porn would not be what it is today without Jim French, the founder of the legendary COLT Studio. The multi-faced styles of his movies and photo works influenced many directors and photographers. Jim French Diaries illuminates the many faces of COLT Studio not only with a wide range of photos but also with a lot of informative interviews revealing the exciting history behind the label.
Biografía del autor
After a successful and lucrative career in fashion illustration during the 1960 s on Madison Avenue in New York, Jim French took a hard look at the state of male nude photography. First he founded Luger basically with his artwork then progressed and founded Colt Studio with his photography to bring the subject into the 20th century. The rest is history.

We're fortunate Jim French is still alive (and willing) to share his reminiscences with us, because who better is there to tell us his story? No amount of research and after-the-fact digging is ever as valuable as an artist's firsthand account of his own development. Seldom has a photographer (and I do not qualify this statement with "of the male nude) been able to capture both the humanity and sheer erotic frisson of his subjects. The evolution of Colt from its early beginnings in New York in the 1960s through its legendary years in California is laid out here in color and black and white, magnificently reproduced. Additionally, a number of French's Polaroid studies and his original artworks (attributed in those days to Arion, Luger and later to Rip Colt) are reproduced and are a welcome reference, reminding us of French's fine art background and his brilliance not only as a photographer, but also as an illustrator.
And while I've long been a fan of Mr. French's books -- seeking out even those early, rare volumes that are often so difficult to find -- this volume will stand as the comprehensive overview of this artist's work. Its sheer length and heft (350 pages and nearly eight pounds) allow room for some unexpected delights: a grinning Byron Hawkwood lifting what looks like a chamois cloth to reveal the goods; occasional behind-the-scenes photos that indicate what a true production a Colt shoot could be; Doug Perry in all his lick-able vascularity. What's truly wonderful is that despite its breadth and depth, the reader and viewer are left wanting more -- more of the story, more of the photographs, more of the remarkable Jim French.
Perhaps a Volume 2 is in order sometime soon?
He loves it.
