HOWARD ROFFMAM --- A BEAUTIFUL THING Jan 24, 2007
As I always say -- you can not go wrong with a Howard Roffman book... THEY ARE GREAT
Beautiful Models, Beautiful Photographs Aug 31, 2006
As usual, Howard Roffman does a wonderful job of capturing not just the physical beauty of his models, but also their individual personalities and "souls", for lack of a better word. Even in this early photo-book (I believe it is his third or fourth), Roffman's style is excellent; I do not think there is a bad photograph in the book. My only complaint is that I cannot figure out what the title "Jagged Youth" means, but for new-comers to Howard Roffman, it is certainly a fine introduction to his work.
Amazing Beatuy ! Apr 24, 2006
This is another example of Roffman's genius. The men, and they are in the early bloom of manhood, are stunning and erotically charged. The there a slight edge to the photography that humanized the models and makes them reachable. WONDERFUL WORK.
AN EROTIC MASTERPIECE! Jan 5, 2006
"Howard Roffman has a unique ability to capture the magical attractive power of young men. Jagged Youth is a love declaration to the natural erotic aura of his models. An erotic masterpiece! Hard cover, 112 PAGES, 8" X 8", Duotone"--? zebraz
Very disappointing Dec 28, 2004
I suppose you are not looking for any hot stuff and that you are already familiar with Roffman's black-and-white photography art, so that I don't need to insist on the fact that what you have here is very, very soft gay porn. In fact I wouldn't call it porn at all because no sexual activity, neither solo nor in couple, is shown in this thin album.
"Jagged Youth" is in my view the least interesting and rewarding of all albums by Roffman. The reasons are simple: the models are more than just ordinary and the album is just too short. If I am not mistaken, there are no more than five models in this collection. All of them are in their early twenties, some may be even younger. They are just plain boys you could meet anywhere. Not that I like supermodels who look perfect, but this time not even Roffman's technique could enhance their features.
I recommend Roffman's album on Johan Paulik and "Perfect Boys" instead of "Jagged Youth". "Peter and Petr" is quite repetitive and not really worth the money even though the two models are beautiful. My favorite is "Sebastian and Friends", by the same publisher, a thick album packed with really erotic pictures in color of Sebastian Bonnet and other Bel Ami models.
