This site contains both personal photos and published photos of the male figure. Ron Volanti Jr. has been photographing men since 1982 and is the Official IML photographer. The images range from mild to wild.


This is Patrix' artistic venue that showcases pieces he has created -- converging the worlds of art, pop-culture, illustration, photography, gay erotica, masculinity, sensuality, love of life, humour, and the classical and unusual beauty of men.
