The Warriors

September 7th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Vogue Hommes Japan‘s new issue is out and it’s a bonanza of arresting images by Steven Klein. Titled “Bondage Warriors” and styled by Nicola Formichetti, the story, with the stark images of powerful built men as “slaves” (to fashion?), is also striking in its utter anonymity for the models. They, by the way, have some of the best physiques in the industry: Travis Hanson, Oraine Barrett, Jason Morgan, Doug Porter, Colby Jamar, Anthony Gallo, Stephen Novak and new cover star Ryan Koning who opened the star packed Roberto Cavalli show this past July. Which is your favorite image and can you spot who is who? Discuss.

Savage Grace

October 24th, 2008 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Klein does not shy away from controversy. The fearless lensman takes his uncompromising vision to the pages of Arena Homme + to create an erotically charged dystopian view of the future. The thrillingly in your face editorial takes masculine paragons Major’s Kerry Degman, Charles Devoe, Travis Hanson and Doug Porter (with Bryton Munn, Caleb and Santiago) and places them in a surreal world of intrigue and danger. The end result is captivating, thought-provoking and pure Klein.
