The Silver People [nsfw] is a site created by 60's photographer, Jon Stevens, whose shtick is to paint people silver and photograph them. More interesting are his pics of Miles Davis | The Cockettes Erotic [nsfw] | Salvador Dali [nsfw] | his being photographed as the first male mod model [modest, not].

Thanks, Nickyskye. Jon Stevens was pleasant to the eyes. Interesting to see someone working on both sides of the camera. And every time I see Salvador Dali, I'm amazed how camp he was.
