Beautifully invisioned. He has captured the action that seems methodical and frantic at the same time when undressing in front of others.

I've found Leonard's impressive artwork in a book when I was in a british library in the eighties. I guess he works based on instant photographs taken the same time to an object from different angles, so he use more than a camera. Besides, his men are so brute and attractive
