Early vintage photo by Western Photography Guild. A composition that's classic WPG: male nude in a rugged outdoor setting, muscles glistening. The posing strap strains to conceal genitals, but pubic hair escapes.
Series 6, No. 9-5. sepia toned photo c. 1950s. Silver gelatin print on linen textured heavyweight paper.
4" x 5" with studio stamp on the verso. The earliest stamps (like this one) include "Series" and "No." and sometimes the series name as well. Starting in 1963 studio stamps include a zip code.
In fine condition.
