About the Relaunch:
We are excited to announce the relaunch of the quarterly Physique Pictorial magazine, the iconic publication that trendsetting photographer Bob Mizer produced from 1951-1990. Physique Pictorial introduced the world to such fantastic photographers such as Bruce of Los Angeles, Lon of London and Champion Studios, models such as John Apache, Jim Paris, and Tico Patterson, and artists such as Tom of Finland, Etienne, and George Quaintance.
The digest-sized magazine served as a platform for Mizer to pontificate on his worldview and to showcase his own photography of his stable of Hollywood starlings. We have created a sleek, modern design for the publication; a fine art journal that you’ll be excited to feature in your male physique photography collection — (in other words this is not a toss away porn or beefcake magazine). hoping to generate a fine art vibe for the production (this IS NOT porn nor beefcake).
