Archaeology of Desire
Perhaps some times in the future, I will write a book about the visual history of homosexuality (of homosexualities ?) in the second half of the XXth century... It is such a fascinating topic: who were the photographers ? who were these boys ? Who were the publishers of these magazines ? And how and where were they sold (bookstores ? sex shops ? subscriptions only ?).
Would such a magazine, Beach boy, such a cover be possible in a country of Western Europe or in the US, in 2016 ?
Thanks to Camillo, the unknown man who scanned it, this cover and this boy can still fascinate and seduce sensitive viewers today...
