I would be surprised if anyone coming to this blog doesn't know the work of Pierre et Gilles, the French artist couple who create fabulous, spangled, airbrushed homoerotic photographs of mythic, religious and iconic scenes. (If you are unaware of them then Google image search is your friend).
They have been a feature of my 'gay consciousness' since I can remember but I'd never seen these before and I'm completely charmed by them... Painted on pebbles, by Pierre (which is, in itself a lovely linguistic touch) I think these little images of sailors and their friends are just delightful. The top pebble, in black and white.. a picture of Pierre et Gilles together.
