    Male nudes by English-American photographer, actor, stage designer, director, and writer Roy Dean (1925-2002). Born Leslie Joseph, son of English actress Hermione Gingold, during the early 1970s Dean turned increasingly to photography with a focus on the nude physique of LA’s male bodybuilders. During the 1980s Dean’s work brought the male nude to the eyes of the masses. This earlier work, A World of Nudes, has a more niche appeal. The stylish black and white photographs a fine presentation of physique photography. The earlier photographs in this work bearing resemblance to Tomatsu Yato’s Otoko, also published by Rho-Delta three years prior.
