Rick Day - Player Two Book

After two years of waiting there's  finally a follow up - PLAYERS TWO - which comes in an opulent format and presents you a collection of stunning photo work that will  reinforce Rick Day’s status as a marvelous portraitist of male sex appeal. Like in the first volume the predominating stylistic device is the cool  aesthetic appeal, reduced to the basics, that sets the focus completely on all these athletic guys. 

The intimacy of Day's pictures is unique; he always goes for direct confrontation  eye to eye with his models! And these men are border crosses, passionately they shape their bodies, they train every single muscle to reach perfection. Day is capable of picturing the passion and the willpower of his models. His photos are incredibly sexy, tough minded in one word: brilliant. 

A true Southerner, self-taught photographer Rick Day moved to New York City in 1994 and became a noted name in Fashion Photography. His work has been published in numerous publications such as Elle, Details, Teen Vogue and GQ; they were the eye catcher of advertising campaigns for Gap, Ritani and Rufskin.
