I was asked to take part in this book project featuring male nude self-portraits compiled by Reed Massengill for Universe Publishing. Sorry to disappoint y'all, but my selfy is only from the chin up. Dave Naz's portrait however....
"Self-Exposure showcases more than 100 self-portraits by the established masters of photography. This collection documents the development of the male self-portrait since the birth of photography with such greats as Andy Warhol, Peter Gorman, David Hockney, Steve Diet Goedde, Pierre Molinier, Robert Mapplethorpe, Yasumasa Morimura, Dave Naz, Pierre et Gilles, Jan Saudek, Kim Weston, Tony Ward, and Duane Michals. Each artist has a varying approach to their self portrait ranging from the shockingly perverse and aggressively erotic to the elusively self-conscious and sublimely beautiful. Self-Exposure is a powerful survey of this most seductive subject and is complete with brief biographies of each photographer."
