commercial photography – upon whose immediate impact was created by the valuable art photography of the audacious Robert Mapplethorpe – that gave birth in the ‘80s to the idea of using scantily-clad, young, handsome, and muscled men to advertise anything from underwear to cosmetics, to toothpaste, to liquor. These youthful and beautiful and men had invaded the world’s most famous designers, as such noted photographers as Richard Avedon, paired them with top female models. Soon every man wanted to look bigger and have smoother skin, be -supplemented and pumped up- the likes that would even make the best athletes of yesteryears look wimpy in comparison. Talk about nature imitating art!
