The Private Portfolio Series
THE UNCENSORED WORK OF NEW MANHATTAN STUDIOS
The Private Portfolio Series at New Manhattan Studios is a collection of single-model studies featuring models with whom the studio has had multiple sessions.
Our sessions have ranged from fashion and fitness work of a commercial nature to physique and art nude studies and we place no restrictions on the type of work included in these collections. Each book in the series is as unique as the model with whom we are collaborating. Occasional models have done softly erotic work and almost always you will find casual behind-the-scenes shots along with formal physique poses.
The series showcases the best of our work with the featured models. As such, some images may be in public circulation, others may have been published in Captured Shadows or other studio publications, but most of the photography in each book is previously-unpublished art, available from us only in this series.
Perhaps the most compelling part of these collections is the addition of the temporal dimension: the study of a single subject over a period of time.
It is rare for a studio such as ours (in a major metropolitan area) to work with the same model over an extended period of time but there are several in the studio's portfolio. In the case of these young men, you are witness to their maturing physiques, nothing less than the principal focus of our work.
Some of our subjects are professional models from the New York modeling pool, others are local body builders or aspiring models who have found our studio, often referred by friends. The commentary that accompanies some photo essays are reflections on what happened at the photo shoot. None of the stories are fabricated. We attempt to reveal and convey something of the actual nature of the model in these narratives but we are ever-mindful of the model's personal privacy.
We are grateful that the models allowed us to photograph them in this manner and we ask our readers to share our commitment to them to protect their personal and professional lives by not circulating their explicit images in any form, forum or format.
