Creator/production credits

The German photographer Matthias Herrmann from the 1980s produced photographs of the male nude, often using his own body, "partially done as a response to the AIDS crisis -- born out of a need to show off a healthy, potent and not endangered gay male body" (Frist, loc. cit.)
