He produced so many photographs that one could likely mine his great horde of them to illustrate a wide variety of themes. It just happens that many of those that I’ve saved for my use fit today’s point of seasonal transition.
Obviously that wasn’t Mizer’s primary purpose when shooting them. Above all else he wanted to give Queer guys a sexual thrill or, if he was particularly adept in his alchemy, a hard-on; but he also liked having a bit of fun when setting some of these up, and he may even have had some subterranean aesthetic purpose.
Mostly, in selecting these, I’ve tried to present a group of pictures that reflect Bob Mizer’s particular skills at their best and that can stand together and interact.
