A particularly tasty image by Chuck (All images by Matthew Rettenmund)
Wednesday was the opening for the gallery show and book Hunks, Twinks, Thugs: Photos 1986-2009 by my pal Chuck (write firstname.lastname@example.org for order info!), a super talented photographer who for years was one of the most prolific contributor to the now-defunct gay softcore mags.

Chuck's work is stark, unadorned, but not without humor. Always perfectly composed, his stuff has stood the test of time because it was never self-consciously arty. It's just art.
The show is at SoHo Project Space (127b Prince St., NYC) from February 24-March 6. Check it out if you can!
