Larrikin Yakka is the second in the Paul Freeman Larrikin series, this time featuring a sensual array of men in gritty and evocative work environments, from the seedier parts of Bushwick New York, to the olive groves and dilapidated villas of Puglia in Southern Italy and out to the red mud and mechanics sheds of central Australia. Having established himself at the pinnacle of his craft, not only as a photographer, but as a visual poet and artist, Freeman's genius is to find and eulogize the spirit of a rugged yet sensitive male beauty in all its' physical glory. From the quality of the compositions and the lighting through to the texture of the locations, his collections set a tone of sophistication rarely achieved in books of the male nude. Freeman grew up in Tasmania, the small island state of Australia, and moved to Sydney in his twenties. A graduate from the university of Tasmania in English literature and history, he moved to Sydney to study and pursue acting before taking up photography at the Australian Centre for Photography His nude portraits of sports stars and actors began appearing in the prestigious Black And White Magazine and in their sister publications, Sport and Blue, and in the magazines' special Olympic book editions The Sydney Dream (2000) and The Athens Dream (2004) He wrote the best-selling biography of Australian footballer Ian Roberts, (Ian Roberts: Finding Out, published by Random House in 1997). His first book of art nude portraits, Bondi Classic, was published to critical acclaim in 2003, and a best-selling series of Bondi books followed. His two Heroics books explored neo classic and post Renaissance male ideals in contemporary contexts. He is probably best known for his more recent five book Outback series which centered on exploring and mythologising the Australian male. Visit paulfreeman.com.au to find out more.
