Jim Collette

photographed by Bob Mizer 
for the Athletic Model Guild & Physique Pictorial 
Pico-Union Los Angeles 
1967 & 1968

As promised yesterday, here are some more pictures of this athletic Franco-American model who accidentally ended his short life the same day as Bobby Kennedy (though unlike the much admired Presidential Candidate not in his beloved LA.)  The first nine employ the same backdrop as the wrestling set with Tommy Evans and were likely shot the same day, a few of them using only the center velvet curtain and others the whole elaborate set up.  The rest come from three separate sessions, though all on the grounds of the Mizer Residence in Pico-Union Los Angeles. The last one, just below, appears to have been made in the back yard on the lawn.
