Review Text

  • By jfpessoa on 21 January 2014

    The legal borderland world of Fifties and Sixties homoerotic "physique magazines" in the United States, was a farrago of mostly wretched posing by models drenched in baby oil, with some occasional better work by Milo, Douglas of Detroit and much more rarely, Lon of New York. But in the early Sixties I saw the first of a series of unusual photos that appeared in several large-format, glossy physique magazines. They were attributed to Les Demi Dieux studio, with a mailing address in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn.And they were jaw-droppingly different. I had never seen such photographs in these magazines.The photos were the work of Danny Fitzgerald, a fact that would not be known for many years. He produced a body of work featuring young Brooklyn lads, which showed a consistent technical skill and sense of style very, very far removed from the usual beefcake photography. Fitzgerald photographed young men from the Carroll Gardens neighbourhood, as they hung out in neighbourhood basketball courts or in the streets, and some of them were the principal subjects of his large body of figure work. He was far ahead of the era, with work that had a confident, enduring sensuality and a strong sensitivity to ambient lighting. However, in less than a decade his work no longer appeared.His work was classic, if not well known, and Danny Fitzgerald's photographs of the young men of Brooklyn were virtually unique.Almost half a century later, two collectors, Robert Loncar and James Kempster, did finally succeed in tracking down Fitzgerald's collected original work, which was in the possession of his premier model, and best friend, Richard Bennett. As a result of their dedicated interest in Fitzgerald's magnificent work, and Bennett's cooperation, it now appears in a beautifully produced large format book "Brooklyn Boys, The Photography of Danny Fitzgerald and Les Demi Dieux." This book, which covers the entire gamut of Danny Fitzgerald's figure work, shows him to have been even more artistically and technically accomplished - and ahead of his time - than the relatively few photos which were published in magazines of the late Fifties and early Sixties.
