Les Demi Dieux Reaches Facebook Milestone…Organically

LDD-100likesSo, it may not seem like much, reaching 100 followers, especially when you think of the thousands or millions that follow other sponsored pages on social media sites, like Facebook.

But we’re proud to boast that the Facebook page for Danny Fitzgerald and Les Demi Dieux reached its 100th “liker,” or follower, yesterday.

Organically.

That’s right, organically, without paying Facebook to “boost” the page’s reach or to advertise the page.

We hope you’ll help us keep the organic growth going by liking, following, and sharing the page with other like-minded friends and photo enthusiasts.

Brooklyn Boys at Strand Books

BrooklyBoysatStrandSeveral friends mentioned to us that they had seen a nice stack of Brooklyn Boys on the second floor of Strand Books, New York City booklovers’ trove for bargain and rare publications.

So we stopped in on our way home and found our monograph on Danny Fitzgerald and Les Demi Dieux in good company with George Platt Lynes, Tom of Finland, Bruce Bellas and many others.

Stop by the Strand for a taste of New York and your own copy of the book. The Strand is located at the corner of 12th Street and Broadway in the heart of the Village.

Brooklyn Boys 5: The Photography

1640-13This is the last in a series of excerpts from the biographical introduction to Brooklyn Boys, the new monograph on Danny Fitzgerald and Les Demi Dieux.

With the recent resurgence of interest in the works of Fitzgerald’s contemporaries like Mel Roberts, Bruce Bellas, and Walter Kundzicz of Champion Studio, male nude photography from the early 1960s is being reevaluated for its history, technique, and artistic value. Where the available images by Roberts, Bellas, and Kundzicz seldom transcend the limitations of the early ’60s soft-core and “beefcake” magazines that published them, Fitzgerald’s body of work includes cityscapes, landscapes, and portraiture, giving his nudes a larger context and inviting a wider aesthetic dialogue.
