Best of VGL: HunkHistory: Andy Minsker by Bruce Weber

In 1985, Bruce Weber photographed former Golden Gloves champ and would-be Olympian Andy Minsker for men's magazine Per Lui's Edizione Speciale USA!

Weber later made Broken Noses (1987), a film about Andy's devotion to the young boxers he was teaching in a small town near Portland.

Weber's work with Minsker was published in Japan (only) as The Andy Book in 1987, now a collector's item.
