1,000 Men, So Little Time: Bob Mizer Gets His Due Comments (0)

The New Yorker has a long, gossipy profile of Bob Mizer (1922-1992), the man who created the iconic gay photo service Athletic Model Guild. Daniel Wenger beautifully summarizes Mizer's particular aesthetic and his M.O. in securing models in the 1940s and beyond:

Mizer came out to his mother in the thirties, when he was a teen-ager, refusing to ask a date to the prom and taking up nude Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 2.36.33 PMsunbathing on the garage roof. His notion of gayness was informed by a “Code of Behavior” that he recorded in his high-school diary: “More masculine at all times.” Among his models were the gay and the straight, professional bodybuilders and professional beach bums, college students and returnees from the European front. They assembled in his studio, before backdrops of Greco-Roman splendor and the Midwestern prairie, stripping down, oiling up, and—this being long before the full-frontal seventies—putting on silken posing straps, a kind of antique G-string. (The ones Mizer used were allegedly sewn by his mom.) After playing sailors and wrestlers and cowboys, the models were rewarded with sets of free snapshots, “membership cards” for the Guild, and, maybe most valuable, memories of the photo sessions, when they gazed not at Mizer but at their own images, reflected in the large mirror mounted above him.

The piece is published on the occasion of the release of a massive two-volume set of Mizer's life's work by Taschen; he famously put out a 1,000-model directory, and in fact appears to have shot upwards of 10,000 men. I'm sure he held hands with more than a few of them, too.

Mizer should be as venerated as Mapplethorpe, but is not because his art was produced in a mainstream way (a newsstand magazine called Physique Pictorial, the first U.S. gay magazine) in spite of being considered contraband by the U.S. Postal Service at various times. Also, where Mapplethorpe was seen as capturing a sex-driven scene in a post-modern way, Mizer was seen more as a perv with a camera.

Both things can be true about about men, and about many other artists.

Danny Amendola is covering Men's Health (October 2016), and extolling the virtues of working out even Danny-amendola-main—especially?—when your body isn't into it:

As much as it hurts to work out after a game, it helps that much more.

Good advice for sex, too.
