A new year and a new crush object. French homostyle glossy Blake debuts the Basket League Calendar, a new basketball-themed calendar of nudes (PDF) photographed by Jean Quelquejeu. One of the new(ish) models featured in the calendar is London- and Paris-based Joe Bofunda. The six foot, 179 pound model has so much to share that he was selected for March and August. Totally lovin' the contrast and framing (and day-glo Converse All-Stars) in this photo.
Much more Joe AFTER THE JUMP ...
Joe Bofunda has been lensed by a number of very good photographers including Paris-based Ernest Collins, the American expatriate (and former Chicago hair salon owner) who has become the continent's leading photographer of black male models. Joe's virtual portfolio at ModelMayhem.
Not sure is that tattoo on Joe's right shoulder in Arabic or Hebrew, it looks like the former. If anyone can read either language, would love to hear a translation.
