Jay Diers: Raw Youth

Whoever thinks of Iowa and its stretching maize fields, dairy cows and the inventor of the tractor, is absolutely right but all that aside, the Midwest of the United States has a lot more to offer and is well substantiated by the young photographer Jay Diers: The boys from the American countryside as innocent and untouched, yet with great finesse the photographer achieves highly erotic portraits: full of awakening sexual curiosity and shying pride, the boys present themselves with astonishing naturalness which brings the charm of times gone by to life again. An eighty page declaration of love dedicated to the era of sexual freedom and the redefining of masculinity.

Jay Diers was born in the Midwest of the USA and has worked over the past 13 years as a freelance photographer and graphic artist. His pictures of raw beauty enhance the pages of many magazines, amongst others Blue.

Jay loves to portray the tall strapping boys of Iowa. His portfolio is to be found under
