Gender Bending Pin-Ups

When something can make you laugh and make you think, you have hit the sweet spot. 28 year-old photographer Rion Sabean created a series of Men-Ups!, where men who embody what many consider all that is manly — bearded, tool wielding, blue collar types — are posed and photographed in pure pin-up style. He even went as far as to create the hand-painted paper look that most original pin-up cards found themselves in.

But don’t think he just left it up to others.

“I knew I had to be one of them. It would seem a little hypocritical to cast all the people and to not just go for it myself.”

    funny, yes, but with the right background these could be taken a bit more seriously. the facial expressions and femininity could be tone down. and then you have sexy alluring pin ups

    Great idea! I love Rion’s sense of humor. All of them are really good but my favorite is the the model with the dumbbells. Not the most alluringly posed model, but the beard in this shot is just a hoot!
