Drasko Bogdanovic Male Erotic Photography

Raw, edgy, brash and sexually charged, Toronto photographer, Drasko Bogdanovic‘s work can be classified as intimate portraits allowing us a glimpse into personal, sometimes embarrassing (mostly for the viewer) moments of the subjects.

Here’s an excerpt from Drasko’s Biography on his website:

“Experience a world of the unspoken homoerotic. Male sex appeal, unvocalized desires, kink, perversion and all that is considered naughty, and not right, is Drasko Bogdanovic. Raised in Sarajevo during the Bosnian conflict, Drasko’s view of real world strife strongly influences his photographic view. His subjects are raw, a little filthy – the message is to the point. Inspired by film noir and German sexual proclivities, Drasko is credited with his ability to expose the raw, often-missed angles of sexuality.”

Besides his extensive portfolio on his website, Drasko also has a book titled Persuasion of Men. The best thing is that it’s completely viewable online. Check out the book here. Be sure to expand it to full screen! Here’s the intro:

“Persuasion of Men examines society’s view of male nudity and the uncomfortable fit between masculinity and beauty. Bogdanovic‘s intimate portraits depict men without focusing on sexual orientation. The images draw the viewer into a game of voyeur and exhibitionist filled with erotic charge and sexual tension, guaranteed to arouse. Presenting a natural attitude to nudity, Bogdanovic strives to illustrate curiosity and freedom towards the male form.”



One of my New Years resolutions is to try to be more consistent with updates with MustBeGay Blog. With 3 other blogs, Jockstrap Central and two underwear sites, my time is limited and MustBeGay is the site that always seems to be last on my list of priorities. But I’m going to really try hard to update at least once a week from here on in. Now on to the new post…

Was surfing the net today looking for artistic male nude photography and came across Jeff Compasso’s photography website, and although I loved all his body of work, it was his Knot Quite Naked series that really caught my eye. Using ties (and bow ties) tied, draped over, and binding men’s bodies and body parts he creates some pretty wonderful images. The falling fabric complement the stunning lines of the models muscles and curvatures.

I have to also comment on Jeff’s taste in models, they are so my type – handsome and rugged and adds honesty to the allusion of the businessman in suit and tie.

Future Artifacts

“In the final days of the first reign of Emperor Ascroftus III,
it was formally decreed that all statuary art found to be of “questionable moral”
and “irreverent content” be banned, dismantled by torch and buried away from public view.

These are the “Future Artifacts” from a recent discovery of one of the
rich future ancient art burial grounds.”

You may not know Dennis Covey’s name (although there’s a good chance you do), but you have most likely seen some of his expansive commercial work which includes years of work for men’s fashion and underwear catalogs, fitness certifying organizations and publications. As a gay man, I give a lot of thanks to Dennis and his photographic work for the International Male catalogs in the 80s – They accompanied me through puberty and I’m sure in some way helped me in coming out in my teens.

Beyond his commercial work, Dennis is an accomplished artist studying in many mediums, but his latest and most interesting (in my opinion) are his life casts.

“The artifact style casts usually have no chin, face or arms with raw edges and resemble something that might have been excavated from an ancient archiological site.”

They are life size, simply because they are actual cast from real people and they are nothing short of stunning. They are available for purchase or private commissions are also available..
