Just comment this post with the name of your favorite male model of all time. I'll pick 1 of you at random to win 1 week from tonight at 5PM ET (U.S. residents only). Good luck!
Today, mystery shooter Venfield 8 will post the full, uncensored image "AFRIKA, 2014," one step in his partnership with All Out, a charity based in Parity that fights for gay rights internationally. Venfield wants to help raise awareness in any way he can, and since photography is his voice, he is raising it:
"I am doing this as an artist, the only way I know how to raise awareness especially for our brothers and sisters in Uganda who now live under draconian terms, without voices and with dwindling options. All people have to do is visit All Out to see how they can help. It doesn't mean donating money, either; just a signature helps in the fight."
It's a striking image and, of course, it's the good fight we should all be fighting. More on Venfield 8 here.
He's got a sense of humor, too, teasing his rapidly expanding audience with hints that he may be someone famous, all the while sprinkling his Tumblr (Work Unfriendly) with unique, offbeat imagery, building a catalogue of work that is becoming more illustrative of who he is than any personal information ever could be.
I've been negligent in not interviewing him sooner—I've blogged about him for a couple of years already—because we've become friends. I've met him and stayed with him at his home, and have benefited from his advice and support; it's hard to interview your buddies.
But when your buddies are brilliant artists, you have to step up to the plate...
My good pal Venfield 8 has always remained anonymous...but now he just posted this revealing (even more so on Instagram) selfie on his Instagram. Isn't he hot? It's rare that photographers are as hot or hotter than their subjects.
Hot model David Laflamme previews Venfield 8's book Bear Hill, in which he stars. It's a sumptuous feast for lovers of bears...and just of guys. Watch the video preview below...
