The Queer Issue: Jeff Palmer Photographs

More about the 2011's Queer Issue cover photographer: "I work almost totally in black and white. I enjoy removing the image one step out of reality where the textural, sculptural and sensual qualities of light on the body come into focus. It elevates the scene out of the ordinary color-filled world we are accustomed to and compels the viewer to look differently at the image. And the image is the male nude. The male body is an amazing creation � a sensual machine of power, grace and beauty. I want to capture these powerful images in intimate moments. This is my art."
