Orest Daszo Photographed by Les Demi Dieux

Now, to return to the 1960's for a few moments to a field in New England, where Orest Daszo poses for Les Demi Dieux.

Danny Fitzgerald was the cameraman behind the physique studio, Les Demi Dieux. His partner, Richard Bennett, was also his most exquisite model, as seen elsewhere on this blog. Together, they sold by mail order their physique photographs as Les Demi Dieux.

Model Catalog by the Athletic Model Guild

I must thank a generous fan of this blog for this extraordinary catalog of models taken by the Athletic Model Guild.

Depending on your browser speed, this catalog might take a moment to open on your computer.
