Thomas Synnamon published SLEEPLESS with the German publisher Bruno Gmünder in July 2010.
Never has there been as pleasant a reason to stay awake at night as the new photo book by Thomas Synnamon.
Hardcover: 80 pages
Publisher: Bruno Gmunder Verlag Gmbh; Bilingual edition (May 2010)
For the past few months, Thomas has been searching for exceptionally beautiful men and doing whatever it takes to keep them awake--so that he can photograph them. The result is Sleepless, a magnificent collection of portraits, each one rendered in the intimate, signature style of this emerging, self-taught photographer from New York. As if peeping through a keyhole into a bedroom--a man’s most private space--Thomas captures the restless, midnight moments of men who are exhausted, yet wide awake. Some of these men seem to be waiting, perhaps for you; they return your gaze with haunted, seductive looks in their eyes, full of desire and expectation. Others are tangled in their sheets, so alluring that all you want to do is reach out and unwrap them.
Sleepless is Thomas’s first book, and he has approached its creation with the same objective that he sets for all his projects: to create something beautiful. Thomas challenges himself to resolve the tension between creativity and technique with imagination and boundless energy. His primary subjects are the male form, fitness, and fashion, expressed with an edge, and he enjoys experimenting with lighting to create drama. His passion for simple, yet bold photography has been inspired by such artists as Richard Avedon, Robert Mapplethorpe, Paolo Roversi, and Steven Klein. Sleepless shows that Thomas Synnamon belongs in the company of his idols.
Sleepless will keep you awake at night.
Thomas Synnamon has also a new 2011 Calendar: leather and lace fun, sexy, pin up boys
