Celebrity photographer Tony Duran (my guru is sharing with us some images from his new book Dieux Du Stade: Gods of the Stadium now available on Amazon. Tony Duran did an amazing job, the photos are extraordinaires, sexy, hot, a blend of Parisian architecture and male perfection.
This is the first part of 3 exclusive posts. Next week we will publish two more series of photos including an interview of Tony Duran himself.
The photos in this book were created during the photoshoot by Tony Duran for the 2010 edition of the famous poster book calendar, DIEUX DU STADE “The Gods of the Stadium”, for its 10th anniversary. Within it, the players of the club Stade Francaise Paris and their guests are photographed nude. The book is just amazing. It is unbelievable how beautiful those guys are and uninhibited. It reminds us of the art created centuries ago when (in Greek and Roman empires) nudity was as normal as wearing the clothes, it just comes natural.
No-one else can photograph beauty the way Tony does. He is a master of capturing bare personalities of his objects. Dieux du Stade is just a perfect table book that stands as a reminder of our times, stating that art is bigger than any prejudges that society can have.
Tony: “I brought back every memory as an athlete to this project. Coaching, focus, passion, and a bit of aggression were all things there players could relate to. For once I didn’t have to look at a bunching dress or an uptight publicist. It was mano a mano. Look at the camera; push your shoulders down. Jump! Jump ! Jump! In the fashion world I am a bull. In this world, I am a coach. It is all about perception. It was one of the easiest and most enjoyable shoots I have ever accomplished.”
