As we approach this year’s Pride, a new collection of photographs, soon available to buy online, will celebrate the male form, openness and inclusion. Boys! Boys! Boys! Vol II / Pride features works by queer and gay photographers including Matt Lambert, Florian Hetz and Stuart Sandford and the legendary photographer Greg Gorman.
The collection is thanks to a partnership between Paddle8, an online auction house, and London’s The Little Black Gallery, curated by founder Ghislain Pascal who said: “We wanted to showcase photographers whose frank and provocative images are a celebration of sexuality and openness.”
The Little Black Gallery is known for its exhibitions and artists celebrating the female form, including its annual Girls! Girls! Girls! show. As a gay man and avid collector of queer and gay photography, Ghislain wanted to shift the focus of visual pleasure off Grindr and onto the exquisitely photographed bodies of beautiful men.
Boys! Boys! Boys! Vol II / Pride will go on sale today until 25 June on Paddle8. We’ve picked out a few images to share with you but more can be seen on Paddle8.
