Photographer Ludovic Baron adds his theatrical touch, posing each jock heroically, draped in strategically placed fabrics designed to lure you in without giving everything away.
Among the legendary Olympians, there’s a definite sexual current: Clement Daguin poses as Eros (the god of Love) and Djibril Camara — one of the few models of color — poses as Priapus, a Greek fertility god who was cursed with a permanent erection.
