“I decided to start working on male nudes a few years ago because I didn’t like most of the contemporary male nude photography. For me it is too trashy or too sleek,” explains photographer Joachim Baldauf. So I started to do it my way: non-retouched images of real men with a very classic lighting. Non-posed images of men whose sexuality, job or social status is not recognizable on the images.”
