A naked young man in a straw hat

I've always been glad my involvement with the 1950s was minimal. While I sometimes post photos from the days of the Athletic Model Guild it is for their historic or curiosity value. But the photograph of a naked young man in the straw hat looking at himself in a mirror is sort of charming, a little puzzling as well. Is the boy seeking to adjust the hat for a certain look or just wondering how silly it makes him seem. And the photographer, was he hoping to suggest carefree island life or doing his best to arrive at a new way of presenting a nude youth.
