As you know, I talk about porn here about 95% of the time (and on Fleshbot, like 99% of the time). I look at porn a considerable amount – even when I’m peeing, because that’s when I’m posting to my tumblr. It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally, someone breaks through the mold, and leaves a lasting impression in my mind. Earlier this week, it was Jamie Blyton, and those abs. Sometime last year, it was Buck Santiago…and those abs. On Fleshbot, it was Liam Burlington’s perfectly imperfect cock.
The thing, though, is that all of those have something to do with sex, or porn, of some sort.
It takes a special kind of guy to be able to captivate the camera with just a look, or even less, like a body stance.
That’s what you get with Antony Cortinovis.
I’ve always admired the work of a good photographer. And Alessandro Calza, the one who took these images of Antony, is in that pack. He manages to capture a certain aura about Antony. His face isn’t perfect, and shows the slightest bit of aging, but where many would see that as a negative, Alessandro captures that as endearing, and it draws you into the subject even more.
But Antony is able to captivate on his own. Look at the way he looks into the camera. Look at the way he looks AWAY from the camera. Look at the way he holds his body. It’s hard to find someone who can pull you in, while their shirt is above their head, covering most of their face. But not only can he captivate the camera, as he does so well here, but also the hearts of people – so well, that he was crowned Mr. Gay Italia in 2008. He also competed in Mr. Gay Worlds in 2010, representing Italy, but he didn’t place.
So I guess someone else was able to captivate hearts a little easier, but they are not me; Antony has captivated mine.
