About the Relaunch: We are excited to announce the relaunch of the quarterly Physique Pictorial magazine, the iconic publication that trendsetting photographer Bob Mizer produced from 1951-1990. Physique Pictorial introduced the world to such fantastic photographers such as Bruce of Los Angeles, Lon of London and Champion Studios, models such as John Apache, Jim Paris, and Tico Patterson, and artists such as Tom of Finland, Etienne, and George Quaintance.
The digest-sized magazine served as a platform for Mizer to pontificate on his worldview and to showcase his own photography of his stable of Hollywood starlings. We have created a sleek, modern design for the publication; a fine art journal that you’ll be excited to feature in your male physique photography collection — (in other words this is not a toss away porn or beefcake magazine). hoping to generate a fine art vibe for the production (this IS NOT porn nor beefcake).
About This Issue: Volume 45showcases guest portfolios on modern-day photographers Marwane Pallas, Florian Hetz and Matthew Finley. We unearth rare images of our featured Mizer model Tico Patterson and celebrate never-before-seen sketches by legendary illustrator Harry Bush. Contributor David Chapman introduces unique archival images of working-class men taken by Southern artist Henry Faulkner. And Corbin Crable explores the detailed history of censorship in the 20th century.
Our intention since the day we began protecting Bob Mizer's estate was to bring it back to the public in a way that makes people feel good. We are so fortunate to have fans like you, people who are willing to help fortify us and be a part of who we are and what we do. Your support means the world to us!
