Nick Ibanez (circa 1981, as seen above) and John Davidson (circa 1965, gracing BUTT’s splash page this month) were just two of the many, many hot tamales photographed by the late, great Bob Mizer in his now-infamous Athletic Model Guild studio in Los Angeles, California.

Dennis Bell, who established The Bob Mizer Foundation in 2010, has set up a Kickstarter campaign to catalog and archive every single 35 mm image ever shot by Mizer, and eventually hopes to make the entire collection available to the general public. We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of color transparencies and negatives, so it’s a huge labor of love.

Support the important work of The Bob Mizer Foundation and donate generously to their Kickstarter campaign before 10 September 2015. For more information about Bob Mizer, please check out the Foundation’s website.
