vintage male photography by most infamous photographer of old times....book gay interest
Konrad Helbig is mostly known for images of young Sicilian men. Only after his death in Mainz in 1986 were the nude photographs of young men discovered in his estate. The photographs, some of which were taken in the 1950’s, are seen in the tradition of Wilhelm von Gloeden and Guglielmo Plüschow. In addition to these black-and-white photographs, which are widely known to the public, there are some 60,000 excellent medium-format color slide positives that Helbig had produced especially for the numerous slide shows with which he made his living. His nudes were not published during his lifetime.
This is an absolutely STUNNING photo book of the iconic classic photographs of Konrad Helbig.
A Photographer who did a lot of scenery photography in the mediterranean and also photographed a lot of young male locals, the photos and the nudes were only discovered after his death in the 80s. The photos can only show a selection of what´s inside. It features his best photos from his nudes, portraits and some scenery photography with focus on his male photography
It´s a MULTI language book featuring the text in german and italian (very little text anyway)
It is a large sized HEAVY coffee table HARDCOVER book and features a STUNNING quality selection of GORGEOUS photographs all beautifully restored and most likely in better condition than ever before, many unseen before and all printed on very heavy quality paper - STUNNING book, a MUST HAVE and a GREAT addition to any collection of lovers of classic male photography.
This is a GREAT & RARE collector´s item - overall this is STILL in VERY FINE condition with only very slight signs of previous use
price is $480 cash FIRM.
