Administrative/Biographical Note

Mark Rice (1954-2019) was a photography collector. Rice and his partner, Ken Kohn (1958-1994), were motivated to collect photographs of the male form in response to the lack of representation of, and lack of dialogue about the male nude in art, and as a means to examine concepts of masculinity and the male form not solely dependent on the representation of genitalia. Rice later began collecting vintage physique photography (ca. 1940 through 1970), also known as "beefcake" photographs. Portions of the collection are available at UMBC and the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, California.
