Naked for a Cause is releasing Gods of Sport, a premium quality, hardcover photography book; in aid of The McGrath Foundation. The book contains previously unseen images from the shooting of the charitable Australian Footballers 2008 calendar.

According to the organization, Gods of Sport is an insight into the world of ‘footy players’ where photographer Pedro Virgil takes you on an intimate journey behind-the-scenes giving you candid glimpses of these men as they bare their muscular physiques chiseled by combat on the field, and relax, often nude in front of the camera. It is a highly-charged, photographic interpretation of the naked spirit of masculinity.

Taking inspiration from movies such as Fight Club and 300, Pedro Virgil depicts these sportsmen in a way which is masculine and tough, yet at the same time artistic and exciting. Moody colours and subtle lighting techniques result in painting-like photographs which will captivate and draw you in. It is a collection of stunning photographs of Australian footballers as they have never been seen before! Enjoy :)
