MEN I N THE ALPS: Best Of 2008 To 2014

DNA Magazine - - BOOK REVIEWS -

This is a ret­ro­spec­tive of a fa­mous Euro­pean cal­en­dar that raised over 120,000 eu­ros for HIV char­i­ties. The pro­ceeds from this book will also be do­nated. The cal­en­dar project has now come to an end and wasn’t dis­trib­uted in Aus­tralia so this book pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to ad­mire the men who were fea­tured. Many of the mod­els came from South Ty­rol and Italy but also from other Euro­pean coun­tries such as Slo­vakia, Ger­many, Poland, Rus­sia and Turkey. Typ­i­cally they were posed against alpine back­grounds or in amus­ing sit­u­a­tions while semi-clad in tra­di­tional Euro­pean cos­tumes such as leder­ho­sen. In ad­di­tion to the pho­to­graphs, there is also an in­ter­view with cre­ators Peter Viehwei­der (pho­tog­ra­pher) and Ger­hard Zanetti (artis­tic di­rec­tor), pro­vid­ing all the back­story and in­ter­est­ing gos­sip be­hind the project.
