The male nudes of AJ Khan

Art Model Zack

There is no hazard... Since some times I told myself there are not enough male nudes in Uda. Of course, it is not really my cup of tea, I prefer curves to squares, you know it since 1587 articles. And I never found photographs which touch me.

And guess what ? I was searching for a particular series I love on the site of AJ Kahn and I found these prodigious male nudes which remind me Rodin. I ask him the honor to exhibit them and he sent me these one. I am really a very lucky man and AJ Kahn a true friend since a long long time.

Thank you AJ Kahn from the botton of my heart. It is always a true honor and I am deeply proud of your indefectible confidence and your kind words.

"Approaching the male and female subjects in my photography has evolved over time.   It is my feeling that all too often both genders are depicted as stereotypes and perhaps objectified in their own way.  I believe most artists have been guilty of this to some extent, including myself.  Often times, I would portray male subjects as rugged, brawny and robust as possible. I would use hard, high contrast lighting to bring out definition and texture, broad poses that enhance strength and size of the male physique while avoiding poses that might imply vulnerability.  With female subjects, I would use much softer lighting to help smooth the skin and minimize texture. I would encourage poses that are “flattering” to the female figure as well as render them in a gracefully feminine way. 

Currently, I aspire to challenge my approach.  
I want to go beyond what pleases our acquired esthetic senses.  It is my goal to represent both subjects collectively as a celebration of humanity.  I strive to honor what it is that makes each subject unique while at the same time paying tribute to our similarities.  
I seek to explore traits that we all share to a certain extent; elegance, strength, passion, vitality, empathy, desire and introspection.  It is my hope that if we acknowledge those traits we all possess, perhaps we can find a new appreciation of the human form, no matter the gender of the subject."

The Open Universe of Massalo


" I like taking pictures, it's a bit like fishing. I know it sounds strange but you are in contact with something that is bigger than you and you are trying to capture a bit of it, "that moment". 

"Open Universe"

Photographer, Painter, published Writer, Massalo lives in Angola, Africa. I think he's the first photographer from Africa to be published here, the main reason being they are not numerous on this continent. And don't ask me why.

In his self-interview, Massalo says he has not a particular style : "I take pictures. Christian Dior has a style. I just take pictures.", but you'll clearly see how much his photographs are original and innovative.

Despite his shy words, Massalo is truly a complete artist belonging these two qualities I appreciate so much : the modesty and the kindness, two more reasons to be very proud and honoured to exhibit him in this site. Thanks my friend. Pour ta gentillesse, ton humilité et les beautés que tu nous donnes.


"I believe that photography, and any other form of art, is a language that, if used correctly, can express things that spoken or written words could never.

It is a powerful medium, and beautiful too."

My Facebook daily Artwork : Yustinus Kao

From Jakarta, Indonesia.  What to write ? What do you think ? This photograph is beyond the words, what is very difficult for a writer as you guess. If you are on Facebook, I invite you to admire his beautiful album Baliem.

Yustinus, receive all my admiration.
