The rise of Asian men as objects of art have taken enormous steps since the first release of The Asian Male – 1.AM, Norm s first publication that explored this very subject. Two years later in 2007, Norm published the sequel The Asian Male- 2.AM and it received accolades that reached far beyond the shores of the fragrant harbour, Hong Kong. The photography clearly established him as pioneer in the development of fine art Asian male photography, something that was mainly reserved to Caucasian men. It brought a fresh outlook that captivated both Asians and Westerners alike. It was new and it was sought after. Photographers were suddenly focusing looking for Asian guys to model for them, and the word redefining Asian men became a cliche term for those following the same beat. In Norm s newest collection of photography, it comes seven years after his last publication. Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Cambodian, Japanese, Filippino and Vietnamese men from all parts of the world are featured in The Asian Male – 3.AM, photographed both on location in Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok, and well as at his Hong Kong studio. The photography takes on a more progressive approach that his previous editions, revealing for the first time full nudes and men in bondage to his audience. For lovers of fine physiques, there is no shortage of 6-pack abdominals and bulging chests gracing the pages of 3.AM. There is plenty. Norm s sensitive eye to light and shadow, combined with his love for the classical form has culminated in a superb collection of seventy photographic masterpieces.
