Book Description

May 15 2010
The ancient Greeks thought the gods dwelled on Mount Olympus. We can confidently report that they've moved to the Paris Rugby stadium! Elaborating on the photographs taken for the popular calendar of the same name, these tantalizing images feature players of the famous international rugby club, the Stade Francais Paris, in all their unclothed glory. Tony Duran's work worships the human form, whether in his sexually charged nude studies, his sensual fashion photography, or his inventive celebrity portraiture. Duran has take his signature style to Dieux di Stade, where he transforms the athlete into graphic sensual male form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dieux du Stade: A Brilliant Addition To My Coffee Table July 14 2010
By Maria Swett - Published on Amazon.com
Behold the glimmering gods of Tony Duran's Dieux du Stade.

When I first opened to these black and white images, it felt like a visual dream--moving me in and out of a steamy locker room. One of my favorite photos is of a man holding a rugby ball, concealing his member, positioned against the backdrop of a cloudy sky. Some other images that stick in my mind: a couple of nude men embracing each other; a striking photograph of one man's handsome face in another's lap; the muscular sweet cheeks of a man standing against a locker room wall.

This sort of homoerotica can be enjoyed by both men and women (I especially enjoy the few delicious erect surprises throughout the book). Duran captures some photos from rooftops and balconies which not only gives me a view of Paris, but also provides an industrial, sadio-masochistic, blood-rushed excitement.

I'm pleased to have added Tony Duran's Diuex du Stade to my coffee table collection. This book properly defines and absorbs the male form as I desire: athletic, nude, and comely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift July 15 2010
By Maria M. - Published on Amazon.com
This book was a fun present for my bride-to-be friend who is an avid photographer. I gave it to her as a bachelorette gift. The photographs are sensuous not vulgar, and though erotic, still fine art. (Basically, still safe to have on the coffee table when parents visit.) We still went through the book giggling and drooling at the French rugby team like best friends at a slumber party! However, as a photographer, she said she was very impressed not only with the photographer's eye for form and mastering sexy without being crude, but also with the overall quality and printing of the book. She said that this is definitely one of the best photography books she has in her collection. Now she just needs a coffee table! (Ha! It's on her wedding registry!)

By Chris Wilkinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Superb pictures. Great quality. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the athletic physiques of top male athletes. Not necessarily a coffee table book, but I guess that all depends on who u have coming over for coffee.
