At a time which beauty has become an obsession and sex a product, Rick Day intends to catch the hottest exhibitionists in their most intimate moments.
In his picture books PLAYERS and PLAYERS TWO, Rick succeeded in creating a world of images in which the trained bodies of hunks in rough rugby outfits, tight shorts (or simply naked as God intended) exude much more than simply masculine sex appeal. It is the interplay of the straightforward and the intimate and its palpable excitement that creates gripping images.
This makes Rick Day undisputably one of the major artists of contemporary photography and we love him for that!
Take a look at amazing images you can find in his books, right after the jump!
