For eight years London-based award-winning photographer Amelia Troubridge has been shooting men who walk the line - from Bill Clinton to Fidel Castro, Howard Marks to Hugh Hefner. Her photographs explore male fantasies - of cars, power, money, life on the wild side, crime, celebrity, war and rock music. But they also go beneath the surface, revealing the fears, hopes and fragility of the male character, and of the world that shapes it, with brilliantly observed background detail. For this book, Troubridge's photographs have been sequenced to tell a powerful story. Designed by Mark Thompson.Amelia Troubridge has won a number of awards for her photography, which has been published in Esquire, Tatler, GQ, The Sunday Times, the Observer, and other publications in the U.S. and the U.
