Mr Clooney is in the house .... 50 stars and their vision of the ideal man - at Hamburg's Deichtorhallen

The House of Photography in the Hamburg Deichtorhallen will bring the eyes of many women and some men to shine until the 22nd of May. The ‘Traummänner’ (dream men) exhibition sees the curators addressing a very diverse topic: society’s image of the man.

There is not ‘one ideal’ due to the fact that the very image keeps fluctuating, changing and developing. Rather, there is a whole array of ideals, which are created by the international elite of fashion photography.

A grand total of 100 works is featured in the exhibition, some strong, weak, metro sexual or raunchy, including the usual suspects such as Tom Cruise or George Clooney and rather unusual - Sir Ian McKellan. The exhibition is the follow up project of ‘Traumfrauen’ (dream women), which was created in 2008.

Here is an overview of all the exhibited photographers, a who is who of photography and namedropping avalanche made up of BRYAN ADAMS, Ellen von Unwerth, Bruce Weber, Rankin, Ali KEPENEK c/o OFFICETHIRTYSIX, Nadav Kander, Albert Watson, Mona Kuhn and Peter Lindbergh.

If you cannot make it to Hamburg, you are welcome to take a look at the book instead, published by the Dumont Publishing House.
