Lorenzo Gomez: Ironmen

Gomez´ models proudly show off their meaty masculinity against a powerful industrial backdrop. He presents fiery views shot under a scorching sun, stylized and flooded with a superb, warm light.

This photographer isn’t interested in white skins, so we see these “iron men” in a range of skin tones, from coffee-cream, through warm gold, up to ebony. Gomez’ men are obviously proud of the figures they’ve worked so hard to achieve and love posing; yet they don’t always reveal everything. These Latino machos seem to melt into a massive environment of machines, chains and desert sand. A large-format, 96-page book of photos of real “hot stuff”!

Californian Lorenzo Gomez has devoted himself to photographing sexy Latinos for over twenty years. He started specializing in this area after training as a photographer and has already had great success with many publications in calendars, advertisements and magazines. This, his second photo book, follows the publication of his first book “Dios Latino”.
