“When I first started out with Manscapes back in 2015, I published a coffee table book of fine art male nude portraiture showcasing my art. Sadly one of my models Rhys took his own life.
Rhys’s passing inspired me to change the journey of Manscapes. Each year I’ve produced a Manscapes Calendar featuring mostly guys that have never modelled before. My Calendars are a tribute to my friends who lost their lives to suicide. It makes me more determined to make a change for men who suffer with mental health issues. Whether it be from raising awareness through my posts and sales of the Calendars, to making these guys feel better about themselves from the images I take of them. Every Manscapes 2021 Calendar purchase supports the QLD Aids Council to fund men’s mental health projects,” John Bortolin, photographer.
