In his exhibition project Skin Deep, photographer Danny Baldwin clocks the extinction of the undecorated male model. In 100 black-and-white photographs, Baldwin depicts professional male models who are embellished with everything from a few party tats to entire inked bodies.
“Over the past few years I started to notice a marked change in the models who worked in front of my camera,” he explains. “In just a short space of time they changed from being fresh-faced and clean-cut blank canvases to the sort of models usually referred to as alternative — individuals with an edge of defiance, whose tattoos represent the ownership they have over their bodies.”
