5.0 out of 5 stars I AM HONORED TO BE THE FIRST REVIEWER!!!!!!!!!!! 6 Mar 2013
By Roman 1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I must admit that I was not familiar with the name Louis Lasalle, being better acquainted with the work of Paul Freeman, David Vance, Dylan Rosser, and Giovanni. Mr. Lasalle is definitely a contender of high merit among the names in this group!!! His work is closer in scope to that of Vance and Rosser. Paul Freeman's work is like NO other, him being an especial favorite of mine although I now own works from all five artists. This volume, Dawn of the Gods, is aptly named!! The men photographed in this first ever coffee table effort from Lasalle are just that--Greek/Roman gods. The bodies and faces are sheer prefection and set the standards for male physical achievement. The cover model is worth the cost of the book!!! There are dozens of full frontal photographs along with many which are closeups of the phallus itself. This particular type of photographic art is reminiscent of the work of Giovanni, whose art is a worship of the penis itself. Many photos include full erections so this volume is NOT timid in nature and makes no apologies for its worship of the male body in ALL of its glory!!!! You will probably recognize a number of well known gay porn actors such as Johnny Castle and Alexander Freitas as models. Castle is an especial favorite of Lasalle's and one can see why--his body and face are amazing, not to mention his other endowments. There is a good mixture of different types of men included and there is something for everyone. Not being familiar with Lasalle's name before now, I took a chance simply because of the cover model, whom I find to be exquisite. In this case, you CAN judge a book by its cover!!! I highly recommend this beautiful artstyle book and you won't be disappointed with its quality or content!!! The name of Louis Lasalle is now proudly displayed on my bookshelf right beside those of Freeman, Vance, Rosser, and Giovanni. The model on the cover is, as I said before, worth the price of admission, so do yourself the favor of purchasing this beautifully done work of art. You will be glad you did!!! ENJOY!!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great photos, great models 6 April 2013
By Romulus - Published on Amazon.com
What a treat to get this book in the mail today. I've been following photographer Louis LaSalle's work at his web site for a couple of years; his nude physique photos look great on my computer screen, but they are truly spectacular on the big printed page. This is a superbly produced volume (as we have come to expect from publisher Bruno Gmunder), well worth the investment. One of the very best volumes of its kind in many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book - The Best! 3 April 2013
By David m - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has so many beautiful full frontal and crisp pics, that my entire male photography nude collection COMBINED could not match it! Smaller than what I expected, it is an amazing piece, and should be part of any serious nude male art collectors library! I love it! Dont believe the negative and wrong reviews on here - Louis Lasalle has outdone himself, you will not be disappointed with this book, the models, the layout, the pictures have me hot with every turn of every page!!! Get it, thats all I can say. You will be glad you did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gods among us 6 Mar 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Louis LaSalle finally has his very own monograph! Not that people do not know he is one of the leading photographers of the male nude today: his work is included in anthologies such as Provocateur, Dreamboys, 2blue, deepblue, blueBOOKS, BAD, Manatomy, Provocateur Studio Men, Romantic, novel covers for writer James Lear books, Jewels, Cock Tales, Turnon: Muscles as well as 7 portfolios of individual works he has published and sold on his website. This full fledged Louis LaSalle solo work THE DAWN OF THE GODS is extraordinarily strong and stands with the best of them as a portfolio celebrating the perfect male physique - completely - in all its glory!

In LaSalle's words, `For me, photographing the male physique is a collaborative process. I have the good fortune to work with models who represent the aesthetic epitome of what the human body can become. They are artists in their own rights, who have through years of hard work and discipline turned their bodies into living sculpture. They are also performance artists who change on command into countless characters of our imaginations. I approach a photo session as a dialogue between myself and the model. We each bring our own unique contribution of creativity, knowledge and experience to the session. When we share and pool these skills, the dialogue is positive and good work naturally follows. When true rapport is established, then magic happens! When we attempt to describe visual experiences something is inevitably lost in the translation. Nevertheless, we are social animals and we love to talk about everything, including art. For fine art, I prefer black & white. I find there to be an almost lyrical quality in the play of light and shadow in black & white. Air can glow. Water can become glass or inky blackness. Textures can beg to be touched. But most of all, in our day-to-day world we are constantly bombarded with color and moving imagery. Black & white photography stands out like a candle in the darkness. It calls attention to itself by its simplicity. Somehow for me, emotion flows more freely from a black & white photo.'

This large scale book offers both the black and white imagery LaSalle addresses but there is so much beautifully saturated color in this volume that no matter the taste of the viewer - black and white versus color - there are ample examples of both way of capturing the staggering beauty of these perfectly sculpted males gods!

2.0 out of 5 stars Only cover page is good 28 Oct 2013
By Edward Qi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
That cover's great, the model is hot - but that's it!!

The rest of the pics are of a bunch of short, old porn actors. There are only 2 couple of pics of the cover model, and a few pic of a very hot Asian guy's.
