Stef was a beautiful, blond athlete, whose father accompanied son on all of Danny Fitzgerald’s photo sessions. Amazing images of Stef on the Brooklyn playgrounds and in the woods were very popular in the physique magazines of the early 1960s.
As far as we know, Fitzgerald never printed this image. We found a short, four-frame strip of images of brothers Johnny and Vinny (second and fourth from left) smoking between two vintage cars with friends, on a street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. The film roll was dated 1963.
This image appears in the book Brooklyn Boys: Danny Fitzgerald and Les Demi Dieux.
