All-OutTeaser version of "AFRIKA, 2014" by Venfield 8

Today, mystery shooter Venfield 8 will post the full, uncensored image "AFRIKA, 2014," one step in his partnership with All Out, a charity based in Parity that fights for gay rights internationally. Venfield wants to help raise awareness in any way he can, and since photography is his voice, he is raising it:

"I am doing this as an artist, the only way I know how to raise awareness especially for our brothers and sisters in Uganda who now live under draconian terms, without voices and with dwindling options. All people have to do is visit All Out to see how they can help. It doesn't mean donating money, either; just a signature helps in the fight."

It's a striking image and, of course, it's the good fight we should all be fighting. More on Venfield 8 here.

Above, an exclusive gallery of 5 never-before-published Venfield 8 images.
Venfield 8 is the moniker of a mystery shooter who loves to take the piss out of consumerist sacred cows, as well out of the conventional gay male aesthetic.
Well, with his sorry/not sorry, glam/not glam approach, maybe he would actually put a little more piss into the latter.
Whereas most of the men we're presented with (guilty as charged here) are twinks or shiny musclemen with nary a hair on their god-like bodies, Venfield 8 seeks out hairy beasts, men who haven't had their abs ultra-etched by a surgeon, men you can practically smell through the computer screen.

He's got a sense of humor, too, teasing his rapidly expanding audience with hints that he may be someone famous, all the while sprinkling his Tumblr (Work Unfriendly) with unique, offbeat imagery, building a catalogue of work that is becoming more illustrative of who he is than any personal information ever could be.

I've been negligent in not interviewing him sooner—I've blogged about him for a couple of years already—because we've become friends. I've met him and stayed with him at his home, and have benefited from his advice and support; it's hard to interview your buddies.

But when your buddies are brilliant artists, you have to step up to the plate...

Bearyoncé: Venfield 8's Laflamme Stocking Stuffer Comments (0)


Mystery artist Venfield 8 is the Beyoncé of photography, surprising fans with a last-minute holiday must-have: His first book, Bear Hill ($130, 500 copies only), features amazing images of hubba-hubba cub supermodel David Laflamme.

You'd be stupid not to invest in this.

And I think it's safe to say we're supposed to pick up on the Bruce Weber references in the title and in the samples available. This is one pomo homo, and one hell of a photographer.
