Darren Ankenbauer's work is inspired by our beefcake past with artistic imagery that harks back to the days of true male erotica. "I am a portrait photographer who likes to keep it simple. I have never been a fan of imagery that is overly stylized or heavily glossed over and airbrushed. My goal is to capture the essence of a subject sans the bells and whistles, and the moments I create with my subjects are more than just "smile for the camera." I have always been inspired by our beefcake past and try to achieve artistically, imagery that harks back to the days of true male erotica. I feel that my images could be best described as artistically informal and historically black and white. With a modern twist of course!"
