Michael Stokes is one of the most successful newcomers in recent years.
His first book, Masculinity, was an overwhelming success, and his fan
page on Facebook has over 140,000 followers. Now comes Bare Strength,
the hotly anticipated second volume of this master photographer.
The imagery of Michael Stokes is so pithy and irresistibly sexy that his
photos graced the covers of two of our anthologies: "Turnon: Sports"
and "Turnon: Muscles". So it's about time to dedicate a whole photo book
to his fabulous art. "Masculinity" sums up everything that makes
Stokes' work special: strength, sex appeal and the perfection of the
male body - staged in brilliant pictures that focus on the essential
without denying the artist's eye for details. Michael Stokes certainly
is a stunning talent to watch out for!
