Alex Marte – A Tribute to TOM


I did the shooting thinking to TOM OF FINLAND MEN like i wrote on the pic, “BULGES BICEPS AND BOOTS”, 3 simple characteristics that makes a man, sometimes, a real sex machine, full of sex appeal and sensuality: THE ESSENCE OF A REAL MAN. I prefer dressed men to naked pictures, cause they are stronger…inviting to feel this sexuality, looking at the SHAPES, using the fantasy!

I live in Rome, i was born in Taranto, on the sea, in south of Italy. I m a very passionate man…and all the shooting dedicated to Tom, i did is about..his idea of a man.
