About

One American photographer. A fifty-year career. Two MILLION images. Help me with the next stage of my quest to preserve the collection.

Bob Mizer was one of the most prolific photographers of our time, and his work was nearly lost forever. Rescued from hot attics and damp storage lockers, this collection is an enormous visual treasure trove of both Americana and vintage male physique photography.

The Bob Mizer Foundation is currently cataloging the 35mm slide collection of the Athletic Model Guild. 750,000 slides must be identified, sorted, cleaned and sleeved into archival pages for permanent storage. Attention to detail is important. Archival work sessions are currently available weekends only. There may be other focused projects if you’re interested.

Note: Items in this collection may contain nudity and homo-eroticism.
