THERE IS SOMETHING IRRESISTIBLY SEXY ABOUT HANDSOME MEN IN WHITE UNDERWEAR, POSING IN SOFT FILTERED DAYLIGHT. APPARENTLY WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE THINKING SO. PHOTOGRAPHER PAUL DE DONA SEEMS TO SHARE OUR OPINION. IN FACT, HE SEEMS TO LIKE IT SO MUCH, HE DEDICATED A WHOLE CALENDAR TO THE SUBJECT.
Following international success and having amassed approximately 1.5 million social followers, Australian born Paul De Dona releases his debut calendar BARCELONA 2017. Photographed entirely in Barcelona, the calendar features models from across Europe and has allowed Paul to showcase his signature style of intimate mens’ photography.
Currently Paul De Dona is based in London, UK. His work has taken him around the world, building a recognisable portfolio based on his blend of high quality niche products represented by fitness models and athletes from all backgrounds. Since 2008 Paul’s style has developed to focus on men’s underwear and fitness photography through studio and location based work and his work characteristically captures men in an intimate light, highlighting their vulnerability and masculinity.
When you travel a lot, whether it is for professional or personal reasons, you get a taste of what places you like or not. Barcelona is one of Paul de Dona’s favourite cities and so he chose this city to create his first ever calendar. BARCELONA 2017 | The Debut Calendar presents us a handful of gorgeous men, starting with cover man Chema Malavia. About the release of his first calendar Paul says: "I’m delighted to be able to release my debut calendar, and to have shot it in one of my favourite cities. I am regularly asked where people can buy my images and I hope this calendar is the perfect way to deliver that. To be able to feature stunning models like Chema Malavia as my cover model, is not only a treat but a privilege."
Though Chema Malavia is already a treat, Paul De Dona didn’t limit himself with one model only. His Barcelona 2017 calendar also features Milutin Djekovic, Michael Smart, Aaron Prieto, Adri Tansi, and Kadu Giacomini. Without doubt the perfect Christmas present, BARCELONA 2017 is now available for purchase at pauldedona.com and Amazon at £19.95 and can be shipped internationally. –BM-
