In his Preface, Jack Sanders states:
"What a day it was when Biron contacted me about doing
a photo shoot. He had seen a black & white amateur photo
of me. I quickly agreed, and planned my first trip to visit
his Nob Hill studio in San Francisco. What follows is the result
of a series of four visits and shoots in eight different locations.
At Baker Beach, near the Golden Gate Bridge, we shot in the
fading light after sunset. As the sun was setting, we slid
down that muddy 100' cliff and I tore off my clothes. Biron
motioned me to the big rock with urgency; and that 'silhouette
photo' is shown on a page on the left side. Facing is
a full page image of the sky filled with shades of red and
amber just after the sun had sunk into the horizon. After a
few more shots, we climbed back up to the road in the dark.
Some of the other San Francisco locations include Land's End
with it's colorful graffiti, the WW II bunkers and gun emplacements
overlooking the entrance to the Bay, the SOMA back streets,
and a downtown rooftop near the Pyramid Building. I began my
modeling career in college art classes. Nude modeling paid
more than clothed and seemed likely more fun! In the last few
years, aside from these San Francisco photos with Biron, I
have also done photo shoots in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and
New York. In addition, I have worked in front of the
camera in over 20 adult videos. It has allowed me to travel
and meet a variety of folk I would not otherwise have had the
opportunity to know. I hope you enjoy these photographs.
Male beauty is everywhere we care to look for it."
Biron's multicultural male photographs, which attempt
in their explicitness to blur artificial distinctions between
art and pornography, have been exhibited at the Scott Nichols
Gallery in San Francisco and at the Au Bonheur du Jour Gallery
in Paris. His photographs have also appeared in three books by
Janssen Verlag and several magazines internationally including
aK, OG, blue, XY, Trikone and Frontiers.
