Lee Apollowear, Raleigh Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement Welcome to my gallery of artistic male nude prints.
Kouros is a statue of a male youth, especially those dating from the Archaic Period of Greek sculpture. Modern art historians have used the word to refer to this specific type of male nude statue since the 1890s. Kouroi were also commonly known as "Apollos," since it was assumed that all kouroi depicted the ideally youthful Apollo. ("Kouros," Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia)
Kouros Photography began as a part time project feeding off Apollowear.com. The concept embodies the mental picture and vision of presenting the male form as work of fine art. The male body is a landscape of picturesque details, when captured skillfully is a work of fine art. Our focus is to exhibit the finest examples of male physique and to deliver top quality prints to admire for years to come. Our prints are available by themselves or well matted and framed prepared for hanging on your walls .
