about this item
From award-winning photographer Robert Trachtenberg, a playful coffee-table collection presenting a modern take on male portraiture, with stunning (and cheeky) photographs that subtly open up a provocative conversation about today's modern masculinity.Paul Rudd in a state of undress; Mark Wahlberg arm-wrestling his son; Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill bromancing in the park. These are the portraits of today's tongue-in-cheek masculinity, as conceived by Emmy Award-winning director and photographer Robert Trachtenberg.Red-Blooded American Male presents 100 of his most imaginative, striking, and unconventionally sexy portraits of both celebrities and everymen going about their thoroughly modern lives. No longer do men have to be serious businessmen or hunky firefighters to be deemed attractive--they can also ride tricycles and get pedicures. Revealing a suprising (and often self-deprecating) side to Neil Patrick Harris, Woody Harrelson, Mel Brooks, Seth Rogan, Jimmy Fallon, Will Arnet, Stephen Colbert, and Will Ferrell, this gorgeous coffee-table book features an introduction about male images and stereotypes plus pithy captions about each photo's shoot, giving readers a peek behind the curtain of a famed portrait photographer's creative process.
