The ancient Greeks thought the gods dwelled on Mount Olympus. We can confidently report that they’re among us. Elaborating on the photographs taken for the popular Dieux du Stade calendar, these tantalizing images feature players of the famous international rugby club, the Stade Français Paris and athletes from other disciplines such as football, handball, judo, and swimming, in all their unclothed glory. This second volume of the successful Dieux du Stade book presents photographs by Fred Goudon, whose work has focussed on the male form for over 20 years. His stunning composition and skillful use of light create an intimate atmosphere and transform the athletes into Greek gods.
Fred Goudon was born in Cannes, France. He studied journalism and started working as a press photographer. In the late 1980s, he moved to Los Angeles and found his calling for fashion photography and his ability to highlight the beauty of masculinity. He works for model agencies and fashion labels and has published several books and calendars.
