Can anyone ID this pic?

So I’ve been cleaning out around my place, and I ran across this old pic I got nearly 20 years ago.  A local gay store (Drakes in West Hollywood, for those who remember–it’s no longer there anymore) sold a variety of gay items ranging from gifts, novelties, porn, lube, and a small selection of kink gear. 

On a side rack, they also had a good postcard collection.  In my lean and have-no-money college years, I bought a few and framed them to create low budget art in my apartment.  I scanned it and am posting it below.

Unfortunately, the scan came out a bit grainy and with an “instagramed” look, when the real image is considerably sharper.  The color is a bit off here too–it’s more of a classically shaded black & white, and not this semi-greenish tone you see here.  But you get the idea, and you see the obvious reasons I liked it, even back in the days where I was just beginning to explore and acknowledge my kinky side.  Even then, I was very turned on by the hint of sexy and meaty toes shown (which are much sharper and clearer in the original postcard).  To be honest, I perhaps hadn’t even fully acknowledged it much at all at the time, but it certainly was pretty good foreshadowing to where I’d end up kink-wise.
It’s a pretty hot pic, right?  Here’s the big problem:  I know nothing about it.  The back of the postcard does have this info:
Photo Laurent Delhourme
Mannequin . Philippe Gaulandi
FRENCH COLLECTION 
Armed with this, you think it’d be easy to just google this stuff, right?  Well, I have, and this image does not show up anywhere.  Googling the Laurent Delhourme name only gets me a underwater sea life photographer.  The second name gets me a cyclist.  No hint of this image, or anything like it, as far as I can tell.  There is a UPC code on the back, and I even tried to scan this with an iPhone scanning app, but no matching product can be found.
Does anyone have any insight, info, or leads to help me find out more about this pic?  Please comment below or email me!

Other updates

I did just see on Metalbond’s blog that if you’ve been looking for Mr. Kristofer’s blog, he’s now moved to a tumblr.
Also, I’ve done a bit of updating to my Recon profile.  Been getting a bit of attention there lately, even before this update, so I imagine I may hear from quite a few of you!  Take a look around and enjoy.
I’m sure you’re wondering when I’ll be returning with regular posts.  It’ll still be a week or two, but I will have some very, very awesome original content coming your way.  If I get a chance, I will try to put up a post of some preview pics, so you can see for yourself.  You won’t be disappointed, I promise.
In the meantime, please follow me on Twitter, email me, or shop around for some new gear!  And hey, maybe you can makes this a bit of a game for yourself… see if you can remain chaste until I post.  Will you be able to make it?  Because I know I’ll want you to shoot a massive load when I do start posting again.  It’ll be worth it, slave.  🙂
