My Idol by Sergey Melnitchenko

Schwarzenegger Is My Idol is a series of juxtaposing photographs of Ukrainian body builders in the nude by twenty year old Ukraine based photographer Sergey Melnitchenko. The series harkens back to the male erotic imagery of 1950s pin-ups with a certain campiness that seems intentional. Melnitchenko says, "In these photos we can see boys whose main goal is to be the best of the best and they will do anything to reach it."
