Selected Self Portraits by

Brian David Dennis

These heroic self-portraits hover between cosplay and self-realization.


They are a confluence of influences, Maxfield Parrish and surreal fantasy. The poses are borrowed from physique magazines of the 40’s and 50’s. Most of the publications were targeted towards gay men. They were steeped in art history and athletic references to legitimize displaying the male figure.
