About

This vintage silver print is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. One of the most famous names in physique photography, Bruce Bellas (1909–1974)—best known under the pseudonym Bruce of Los Angeles—is remembered today as a pioneer of beefcake. Beginning in the 1940s and continuing until his death in the 1970s, Bruce of LA photographed countless strapping male models. He crafted a refined, masterful aesthetic of erotica, whose influence would later surface in the work of Robert Mapplethorpe, Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber, and many others.
