Pictures from Red-Blooded American Male by Robert Trachtenberg

From Judd Apatow to Neil Patrick Harris, Trachtenberg features male celebrities' vulnerable and softer sides by photographing them in traditionally female poses. Instead of usual photos of stoic faces and flexed muscles; it has nude, quirky, and emotion-filled photographs.

One of my favorites presents the cast of Jackass all snuggled together, looking pensive and thoughtful. Trachtenberg even had to ask “Please tuck in your balls!”(Unfortunately, you'll have to wait to buy the book to see this picture).A tad self-deprecating, the photos challenge masculinity by inviting the viewer to see their beloved celebrities' feminine nature. It breaks down the rugged brick wall of masculinity and allows us all to flip how we usually view women as passive and men as active in photographs. These gorgeous photos are a call to all men to embrace their fun and sensitive side!
