In the pre-Stonewall era before the advent of the gay rights movement, male nude photography was kept underground. Photographers feared police confiscation, harassment, and worse. This volume uncovers the work of ten different photographers produced during this suppressive period—images hidden away for a generation in private collections and closed archives. The majority have never been published. A full range of styles is included: gleaming muscle gods shot in the physique magazine style, sun-dappled outdoor nudes from the 1960s, and artful black-and-white studio portraits by George Platt Lynes. Uncovered restores a lost chapter to the history of the male nude photograph and reintroduces more than one hundred unsung classics of male erotic photography to the world.

"In Uncovered, the male nude photographs relate to ecumenical traditions of art. Some of the artists included here are remembering the Sistine Chapel ceiling in Rome, with Michelangelo’s figure of God creating Adam. Or perhaps an earlier, archaic period prior to full development in Greece–when artists strived to capture the human male figure in motion, with natural anatomical structure and proper proportions. The mysterious, procreative power of the male body is of such majesty that it symbolized creativity since the dawn of art."
