Almost two years in the making, “expose” is a rich collection of 246 pages of full color nude photos by photographer Anthony Timiraos of nearly 40 different models. Shot in the style of Old Master’s paintings, the artists’ collection of nude photographs provides a diverse look at the (mostly) male bodies positioned in classical poses. His diversity of models is unique, not just diversity of race and ethnicity but of age, body type and most significantly, diversity of culture. The author introduces you to each model with a short narrative providing the reader enough facts to connect the art to the individual on the page. His intention is to make you feel and appreciate the same emotions he felt in the studio when he photographed the model in this beautiful art form, the classical nude.

About Anthony Timiraos
Born in Havana, Cuba, Anthony Timiraos currently resides in South Florida. His professional career was as a Certified Public Accountant working in Hartford and Boston. After a move to New York City, he became the Chief Financial Officer for an international market research company based in Manhattan and worked with management to take the company public and list it on the American Stock Exchange in 1996.
Not content with his first brief retirement from corporate life, in 1997 he and his husband acquired and renovated a rambling antique property in Stamford, CT and opened a large restaurant and catering facility which they sold in 2000. He retired again and made a move to South Florida in the summer of 2003.
Shortly after arriving in South Florida, he came out of retirement for the second time and accepted a position as the Chief Financial Officer for a casino cruise ship line. After several years, he left the casino business and joined a large South Florida community foundation as their Chief Financial Officer. In 2011, together with four other philanthropists, he founded and became the first Chief Executive Officer and President of a Florida based community foundation serving the LGBT community.
His love for photography began in his early college years. Today, retired for the third time, he is using his free time to create art through photography – capturing that moment in time that describes his life, views and heart.
