We have come to know Dean Stockings as a photographer with a broad sense of creativity and fantasy. Who isn’t familiar with his numerous handyman series and his recent book publication Sofa So Naked. For his latest Dean once again found inspiration close to home. The kitchen in this case. We never knew Dean was such a pastry chef/cake decorator, but what we did know is that the UK based photographer has impeccable taste when it comes to – well – appetite appeal.
The concept was simple: handsome guy starts off looking very sophisticated in his dinner suit, sipping champaign, comes across some very beautiful cakes, eats one, then two, then gets completely carried away and is seduced by the delicious cakes and ends up naked and covered in cake and cream! Like we said, very pre-French Revolution decadent and a concept that truly speaks to our heart. Because we do not only like to nibble on a little cake or two, we also have no problem if the tasting involves the delicious Dominic Nel. Dom is 26 and lives in London. He is active as male model for some time now and casted by Dean Stockings as the perfect men to immortalize his pastry concept. And may we say he carries it well… literally. Because the cakes looks even more tasty being all smeared out over Dominic’s well proportioned body.
UK gay lifestyle magazine reFRESH was invited to this particular tea party and like your BeautifulMag, decided it was too good to resist. They choose one of the many photos for their upcoming cover and will run a most interesting editorial with photographs that, even though part of the same series, are very different from the ones you see here today. They might actually be just those ones you are missing here, so don’t forget to check it out. We leave you to it, while we are still licking our fingers and wonder what we like better in these photographs: the cakes or the platter. –B-
Dean Stockings thanks Modus Vivendi for providing the underwear and Park Life for the delicious cakes.
