One Man's Collection
I am happy to announce I'm partnering with Zach Augustine to do just that.
Our book is aptly titled One Man's Collection, since Zach acquired a massive collection of photographs belonging to a man who passed away in New York City in the early 1990's. Zach found the collection stashed in the back of a closet, left behind as garbage.
We donated the photograph you see in this post to the charity art auction, Skeletor Saves, held in New York City on April 7, 2011. The photograph is of Gary Garret and was likely taken in the 1950's by Russ Warner.
Since we submitted it to the auction, I've been delighted to see the photograph popping up in blogs, forums and groups dedicated to vintage beefcake. It and the other photographs in the collection have been hidden out of sight long enough. It is a pleasure to work with Zach on this treasure trove of photographs, and I look forward to bringing all of the man's collection out of the closet and onto coffee tables everywhere - where it belongs!
