Exclusive: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' Flaunts the Go-Go Boys

Shawn from Upstairs at Risque, Philadelphia.

In his intimate portrait style, photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders has photographed Spring 2007 fashions on go-go boys from bars and clubs in Manhattan, New Jersey, and Philadelphia for the upcoming issue of Flaunt magazine. Thirteen go-go boys were photographed in Timothy's East Village studio over the course of 6 hours in one day.

Greenfield-Sanders and his producer Chad Thompson, who cast the project, have allowed me to share the two images above from Flaunt with Towleroad, as well as the EXCLUSIVE outtake which began this post, and the following images which you can only find here. Click photos to enlarge. No republishing without the photographer's permission - thank you.

Said Greenfield-Sanders: "When Flaunt asked me to photograph go-go boys (or male exotic dancers as some prefer) wearing spring fashions, I wasn’t sure it was for me. I had already photographed America’s top porn stars for my book XXX: 30 Porn-Start Portraits and in a separate effort, the fashion world elite for Look: Portraits Backstage at Olympus Fashion Week. Would shooting go-go boys in designer clothes really be worthwhile? But, the guys I photographed for this feature surprised me. Most dance for men. A few only perform for women. They all have their own stories. They are famous - but their fame exists in smaller circles outside the mainstream. Just like those who have achieved widespread notoriety, these young men are passionate, determined, narcissistic and intelligent in their own way. In the end, the go-go dancers proved to be fantastic models. I hope you find their portraits on these pages intriguing."

Said Thompson: "Originally, the shoot was to feature NYC's top fashion industry executives photographed in Spring 2007 fashions. But because of scheduling difficulties, Flaunt suggested go-go boys instead."

Here's a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot.

As Greenfield-Sanders noted, 'Fashions on go-go boys' is a marriage of Timothy's two most recent projects, which are XXX: 30 Porn-Start Portraits - a book, HBO documentary and traveling exhibition of portraits of the adult film industry's top porn stars, and Look: Portraits Backstage at Olympus Fashion Week - a book documenting the designers, models, editors, celebrities and other fashion insiders who attend NY Fashion Week. Both are highly recommended.

Thanks so much to Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Chad Thompson for giving Towleroad readers a look at this latest project!

  4. So...exactly where are these "Spring 2007 fashions?" I mean if it's a skin shoot, just call it a skin shoot. Not to say that the photography is bad, I just get a little irked by what reaches the standard of "art" these days.

  6. Unfortunately it looks as though 'Upstairs at Risque' is a ladies only club. So much for me getting up and personal with 'Shawn'.

  8. Interesting. I'm not really finding any of them attractive. Except, of course, for Cody.

  12. Matt, all of these (except for two) are outtakes that weren't published in Flaunt. Plenty more in the magazine.

  13. if it ain't the hustlers and porn stars getting glorified, it's the go-go boys. yawnnnnn.

  14. I haven't been to Splash (SBNY) in ages, but if they're hiring guys like James, I may stop in again soon.

    Chase is a sweetie, and much hotter than that outtake.

  15. does it matter if it's fashion, porn, politics? whores all. NYC & Philly have their charms - but these aren't them. like martin says - yawwwn. and like George said - "wake me up when these go-go".

  16. Shawn, despite not knowing how to spell Sean is hot as hell.

    Why is Cody dressed like an Olsen twin?

    Posted by: lambman | Mar 6, 2007 6:00:21 PM

  17. Hmm, I think I'll have Shaun, James and Cody to go. Thanks much.

  19. Mmm...James...

  20. Shawn is mine. What a bod. Gimme one of him instead of a plucked skinny runt any day.

  21. As was once said to me on this blog, "...must be Philadelphia Mississppi,"
    'cause I aint never seen anything that delicious in this town...'course I don't wear my glasses all the time.

  22. There's nothing like a good piece of Man Meat, they sure do make me Hungry, Hungry, Hungry. I'd like to do them one at a time, and then do them again. WOOF.

  23. "if it ain't the hustlers and porn stars getting glorified, it's the go-go boys. yawnnnnn."

    Right, cause we're not supposed to get interested unless it's a Nobel prize winner or Mother Theresa.

    Please. We're men. We like to look at hot guys. It's not one or the other.

  24. Andy, thanks for the post on the Go Go's. Do you know if Flaunt is available on newstands?

    Posted by: michael | Mar 10, 2007 6:53:04 AM
