PHOTOS: The Tattooed Musclemen Of Michael Alago’s “Beautiful Imperfections”

1 2 3 4 5 6 Next »

10-Michael_Alago_72A veteran of the music industry, Michael Alago discovered Metallica, signed Nina Simone and produced Cyndi Lauper, but these days you’re more likely to find him behind a camera than a soundboard. Alago revisits the well-muscled territory he explored in previous photo books, Brutal Truth and Rough Gods with his latest offering, Beautiful Imperfections.

Featuring over 120 portraits by Alago, Beautiful Imperfections is the first commercially published book of photography shot entirely with the Hipstimatic iPhone cam app. The photographer will be signing copies this Friday, June 14, at New York queer bookstore, BGSQD, before kicking off a month-long exhibition at Portland, Oregon’s Cock Gallery with a signing on July 31. We caught up with Michael to discuss beauty and the eye that beholds it.

      Now these are men. If I had a type it would be this. A little less muscle though

      With the title “Beautiful Imperfections,” I was expecting a few actual imperfections… Lazy eye, amputation, psoriasis. These are just your basic muscle hunks with a few tattoos thrown in. Not exactly groundbreaking photography.

      @rhino79: Some hot guys, but yeah. Tattoos aren’t what I would call an “imperfection”.

      All these guys will fit the Bob the Tilt-A-Whirl operator look when they are 65.

      obviously, on their own merits, many (most) of these guys are quite good-looking.
      And a few of the tattoos aren’t unattractive.

      But I’m really not attracted to men who look like hoodlums/street thugs/gang members. This look seems to almost be a prerequisite for porn performers now.
