Bob Mizer fotógrafo americano nacido en Hailey, Idaho.

Robert Henry Mizer (March 27, 1922 – May 12, 1992), known as Bob Mizer, was an American photographer and filmmaker known for pushing boundaries with his work.
Bob Mizer’s earliest photographs appeared in 1942, in both color and black and white, but his career was catapulted into infamy in 1947 when he was convicted of the unlawful distribution of obscene material through the US mail. The material in question was a series of black and white photographs, taken by Mizer, of young bodybuilders wearing what were known as posing straps — a precursor to the G-string. He served a nine-month prison sentence at a work camp in Saugus, California for what now seems tame. At the time, male near-nudity was not only frowned upon, but illegal.
