Machado, George. FOUR MEN ("4 MEN") : PHOTOGRAPHS BY GEORGE MACHADO 1996-1998. Santa Monica, CA: Alluvial Publishing, 1998. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. As New/As New.

The photographer's second collection of male nudes. One of the most elegant erotic art photography titles of the last decade of the 20th century. Limited Edition of 6000 copies. There is no ISBN. The only book published by Alluvial Publishing, which pioneered the high-quality male nude magazine with "Provocateur". A handsome production by Robert Rausch: Oversize-volume format. A very tall and thick book. Pictorial hard boards with white titles printed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by George Machado. There is no text. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Milan, Italy to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the photographer's sequel to his breakthrough collection, "Masculine". The book is in four "fantasy" sequences, with one breathtakingly handsome all-American model appearing in each sequence: "Road to Morocco" (Martin James), "La Isla Bonita" (Matt), "The Cowboy Way" (Aaron Edwards), and "Viva Las Vegas" (Michael Walton). The desert, the island, the ranch (visually anticipating "Brokeback Mountain" by more than seven years), and the hedonistic lifestyle called Las Vegas all benefit from "Machado's use of light and shadow, his ability to match the pose, the subject, and the background, and most of all, his eye for the emotionally expressive and arresting qualities of the male form and face" (Frank Browning). His second and finest collection thus far, this is a "must-have" title for George Machado collectors. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now collectible. This is the one of few copies still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Almost all other copies available online have major flaws: Worn, soiled, torn, and very heavily used. A rare copy thus. 200 delicately toned plates. One of the most accomplished photographers of the male nude. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GEORGE MACHADO TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN B0006RY9UE. $50.00
