Red-Blooded American Male: Photographs by Robert Trachtenberg
In Red Blooded American Male, Robert Trachtenberg has put together some of his greatest "Cheeky" photos of today's male celebrities. In some of the photos, they were meant to mock sexiness, macho-ness, and etc. However, the photos still turned out to be these amazing pieces. Some of the photos have some cute little stories that go along with them, and others are just placed in the book.
I find the idea of challenging today's definition of masculinity through photography, to be a genius idea. Mr. Trachtenberg has an amazing eye for these shots that turn out to be perfect. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that had an interest in Photography.
Robert Trachtenberg's photographs have appeared in Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Esquire, the New York Times Magazine, People, and Vanity Fair among other publications. Advertising clients include NBC, CBS, ABC, Netflix, Amazon, and HBO. Trachtenberg has written, produced, and directed several documentaries on such legendary entertainers as Gene Kelly, Cary Grant, and Bing Crosby. He is the winner of the Emmy Award for Outstanding Direction for his film Mel Brooks: Make a Noise. Trachtenberg is also the author of the book When I Knew (Harper Collins). He lives in Los Angeles, California.
