ABOUT THE FILM
In Jim French The Art of Masculinity, the viewer is taken on a journey into the life and mind of Jim French, the master photographer of some of the worlds most beautiful men. He was a pioneer in the 1960s, creating and establishing a brand that was manly, memorable, visually stunning, and influential: Colt Studios. As the man behind Colt, he photographed bodybuilders and athletes, masculine men with smoldering good looks, and bodies to match. The images his company presented not only turned on their readers, but also helped shape who they were to become.
With the help of past models, work associates, friends, and experts in the art field, the film talks about Jim’s life with Colt, his early life, his work with the models, the restrictions of the time, and his influences.
Full of beautiful images, check out this documentary on the real Jim French, an American artist, who was a renegade in his life, and with a camera.
