Male university rowing club get naked for charity calendar
A male university rowing club have bared all by posing completely NUDE in their raunchiest ever charity calendar. The buff students from
Warwickshire University Rowing Society ditched their life jackets to strip for the FIFTH time. Featuring 14 members of the posh uni’s rowing club the guys - aged between 18 and 21 - can be seen frolicking by the River Avon and in their boat house in Barford, Warks.
Instead of the usual strategically placed oars, this year’s calendar aims to create a relaxed atmosphere by showing the lads larking around on the riverside.
“Of Beards and Men” is a labor of love for graphic designer and photographer Joseph D.R. OLeary. Over the past 18 months, he’s photographed 130+ bearded men. Each portrait is an exploration into that man’s passions, personality and unique individuality.
The next step for this project is printing a handsomely designed and exquisitely produced book that brings together all 130+ portraits. The book will include three essays by art critic George Slade, photographer and educator Douglas Beasley and Twin Cities’ arts writer Andy Sturdevant. The book is scheduled for release in Fall of 2013.
