In 1994 I was shooting the Gay Games in New York. The morning after the physique competition, I invited two bantamweight competitors, Tim and Chris, to shoot. This work takes its title from the famous torso fragment at the Vatican. In my update of that sculpture, to the canted figure I returned an important part of his anatomy  – and gave him a buddy too. These photographs are the first in what became a tradition to celebrate Gay Games physique competitors.
