Sam Carson:
Southern Exposure

Sam Carson’s art is unique within the world of men’s photography. The allure of his photos is found in the hesitant intimacy with which he approaches his ur-American lads. Carson is not worried about gay fantasies, he is only really interested in the model before him. His continuing success speaks for itself and the unmistakable charm of his works leaves no one cold.

After “First Exposure”, “White Boys” and “L.A. Boys”, here comes the latest and greatest from Sam Carson. Carson continues in his unique style with this fourth book of photography, presenting his men at ease and with an extremely pleasant and seductive reserve. The photographer hates complicated staging, thus leaving enough room for quiet erotic moods to unfold. Sam Carson presents unknown faces and fresh, youthful bodies over this 80-page work.

Sam Carson, well-known architect from California, is an old hand in the photography business and has been taking pictures of young amateur models for many years now. He lives in Los Angeles and with his many books has a solid standing in the world of men’s photography.
