French expatriate Verner Degray settled in Tahiti after falling in love with the island about ten years ago. However, instead of curvaceous women, carved gods or cutouts of palm fronds, Degray's photography has focused on the objects of his desire: handsome, athletic Tahitian men. Degray had this to say about his photography: “I'm like a painter with a brush. I'm not a reporter, I'm a photographer. I will not take 8,000 photos to finally produce only two good ones.” But there will be plenty of ‘good ones,’ nude male figure photos, on display in the Verner Degray Exhibit opening at Las Vegas’ Erotic Heritage Museum, in summer 2015.

And the beauty! The raw beauty of men I meet randomly my meetings. Carnal beauty, sensual, boys my goal just enter in everyday life.The camera then becomes the close link between the model myself, just for a moment, just a split second to reach the sublime.

"After several years of urban, landscape and animal photography, I lately started shooting models.
Sensuality and contrasts of curves are elements that awaken my creativity and motivate me to highlight male beauty whichever the place or theme chosen.
I like to share the project with the model and the other partners, make them participate in the storyboard writing, and listen to their suggestions. This, in my opinion, is the most effective, and loveliest, way to get the most from the shooting situation, and capture male beauty at its peak.
I have always been attracted to contrasting results and so can choose color or black-and-white photography according to inspiration".
