BEAUTIFULMAG HAS GAINED A CERTAINLY LEVEL OF FAME NOT IN THE LEAST DUE TO OUR WILLINGNESS TO SHOW A LITTLE BIT MORE. IT SADDENS ME TO SAY THAT ESPECIALLY IN THE EARLY DAYS WE LET ENTHUSIASM SPEAK LOUDER THAN COMMON SENSE. BUT THEN AGAIN, WHAT IS COMMON SENSE. IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN IT COMES TO PUBLISHING MALE PHOTOGRAPHY, WHERE DOES ONE DRAW THE LINE. WHEN IT COMES TO FULL FRONTAL NUDITY, YES EVEN ERECT, SHOULD WE CROP PHOTOS AT DECENT LEVEL OR NOT?
Even though we too poured some water with the wine over the past years, we still believe that the male body is a piece of art all by itself. Now this might come as a shock to some, but the male body comes with an organ named penis. And this penis sometimes has a life of its own, can decide to relax in comfortable down-pointed curve or get all excited and raise its head. No matter what, it is part of being a man, it is what males men men, and it is what makes BeautifulMag BeautifulMag. If you agree with this, and secretly I know you do, please continue. If not, stop right now and come back in a couple of days.
Over the years we have featured a man who goes by the name H2H-Images on regular base. Obviously H2H is not his real name, but since many out there are still too judgemental when it comes to erotic male art, our featured artist has no other option than to use his pseudo. Which by the way has made quiet a name by itself already anyway. Still it is too bad that when it comes to erect male portraits many still pick up their noses and turn their backs, whereas there are printed magazines that showcase elegant ladies with their legs fully spread for decades already. Alas, it is what it is and thus our battle continues.
That a full-erected man is a beautiful sight to see proofs H2H-Images once again with his photographic series featuring Miguel. Miguel originates from Mexico but resides currently in Montreal. He has studied nutrition and is awaiting accreditation to be able to work as a nutritionist. But that is irrelevant to this story. All one needs to do is see what good shape Miguel is in to acknowledge that he knows how to take care of himself. Miguel has a good body, and a good head to go with it. Which makes him a great collaborator for any photographer. In this case H2H-Images.
As you might recall H2H-Images is first and foremost a painter. His main interest is in sketching and painting. In his quest to represent masculine beauty he finds himself drawn back to photography for the ease with which one can obtain an abundance of images. This allows a series of images to tell a story. In painting and sketching one obviously spends a lot more time with one image. The pursuits are complementary. The painter’s eye can help capture the stand-out photograph, and the photographer’s eye can inform a painting. Obviously if one's objective is to create a series of erotic images such as H2H-Images has done with Miguel, photography is the most logic way to go. Considering the time it takes to paint or sketch, the model might have an oxygen issue halfway the session.
Having that all said, let's go back to the beginning. The beauty of a mans body lies in it entire physical appearance. And though we understand and respect the need to crop images sometimes, we are also happy to bring you tasteful portraits of a man in a state full excitement. To cut or not to cut, is it really a question? –BM-
