“Not unlike the marrying of words and music, an important aspect of Blake’s current work is the combination of subject(s) and background. The environment becomes the canvas. At the same time, there’s always a connection between the subject and the audience – which is why most of them are looking straight at the camera.

The need to work is essential. It’s what Blake does best. We are fortunate to have this collection of images. They are a testament to the humanity of the subjects and the obsessions of the photographer.”

After the worldwide success of Blake Little’s PRESERVATION comes WORK, the third volume of male portraiture after the bestselling COMPANY OF MEN and MANIFEST. With an insightful foreword by rock legend Bob Mould, who shares a similar obsession with making art, WORK is different from his Little’s previous books. This body of work documents his compulsion to photograph as a practice, an exercise for an artist that’s as necessary as breathing. His work is what he does and who he is.

The subject matter is familiar to fans of Little’s previous works but his new models broaden the gay masculine archetype he established in his previous books. There is new individuality and even humor, and even wider range of ages and types.

The photographs themselves are darker, moodier, richer portraits with more depth. For these pictures, he has experimented with lighting and composition, going for less rigidity and perfection and instead capturing more spontaneous moments. Photographs were taken in and around Little’s Los Angeles studio and on location in all the places he traveled to recently including England, Spain, Canada and the US.

WORK features 96 color photographs of remarkable men in a large hardcover format, designed by award-winning graphic designer Sean Adams.
