Product Details


As seen in People Magazine, on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List,” on Elle Magazine’s “Must-Read September Book Club,” and in The Advocate, Out Magazine, Paste, PDN: Photo District News, and more!

“This comedic look inside the male psyche features more than 100 creative, gripping and sexy portraits of actors, professional athletes, comedians, dancers and war veterans. Any man or woman in your life who appreciates humor will appreciate this book.”
Los Angeles Times

“The images are great, often clever, managing the trick of appearing to convey some greater truth about the subject…Not once when you look at these photos, does the thought ever enter one’s mind that ‘I could have taken that.'”

“Striking, delightful images.”
—Vanity Fair

“An ingenious and entertaining riff on (mostly) youthful American machismo…Trachtenberg’s excellent monograph will inspire you to tap into this freewheeling vibe and to noticeably enliven your portraits.”

“Trachtenberg’s taste in subject matter is impeccable. If I’m in it—you know it’s good.”
Mel Brooks

“Entertaining? Yes. Enlightening? Yes—and most of all a rare book of the genre.”
New York Journal of Books

“Put some amazing men in front of this guy and the results speak for themselves.”
Mrs. Sizzle

“Striking, surprising, sexy portraits of actors, comedians, athletes and other famous folks (including Jimmy Kimmel, Jack Black Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Channing Tatum, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart), all playfully coming out of their shells—and challenging the conventional notions of masculinity—for one of Hollywood’s top celebrity photographers.”

“These gorgeous photos are a call to all men to embrace their fun and sensitive side!”
