Vintage nude photo show brings back the work of John B. Post (NSFW)

Twelve years ago, Stevyn Prothero inherited a hefty stack of nude photographs taken by beatnik photographer John B. Post. Originally though, Prothero -- known by the moniker Iron Feather, a longtime online store and former-Denver book and zine retailer -- was called upon to check out the contents of Post's extensive book collection, not the nudes. "They were going to be thrown away," says Prothero of the photographs of women taken by Post in the '60s and '70s. Luckily, they weren't. Beginning at noon tomorrow, July 14, Prothero will share this collection with the public for the first time in the former The Other Side Arts space.
