David Arnot

(Male photography, not language.)

As the old year changes into the new, my 2012 Boy Next Door wall calendar (prominent in my living room) has been replaced by the 2013 number. All with photos by David Arnot (very minimal information on himĀ here).

These calendars avoid explicit images, but often just barely; the models, lovingly viewed, are minimally clothed, so as to show off the physical features Arnot tends to fix on: pecs, abs, and armpits as accompaniments to crotches as the central focus. His men’s faces show a variety of expressions, but they are almost never amiable; it’s as if a smile would be inconsistent with the strong masculinity he seeks out in his models.

A display of the 2012 calendar images:

Plus the back cover image:

Two other Arnot images, the first notably seductive:

And the front cover of his book ONE, with a steamy image of an almost naked young man:

The pubic hair takes this one right up to the edge. Our attention is divided between the intensity of his facial expression, framed by his wild hair, and the promise of his genitals, just out of sight. But despite these demands on our attention, we are likely to focus first on the dark hair of his armpit. A very erotic photo.
