Photographer Dylan Rosser has been photo shooting men since forever. It would be crazy to start counting the amount of handsome men he has been working with and it is pretty safe to say there is no angle, no position, no perspective Dylan hasn’t tried already. Despite that, or maybe because of that, Dylan Rosser is still one of the most sought after male form photographers of today. His enormous success has lead to a large volume of photo books, some of them real collector items. ‘Wet’ is the latest in this series of artfully crafted publications.
Originally form South Africa, Dylan Rosser moved long ago to London where he continued pursuing a career in graphic design while doing photography net to it. It wasn’t for long though that his star began to rise and he gave up design all together in order to dedicate all his time to male photography. A bold choice, but, as it turned out, a right one. Dylan Rosser is internationally renowned, recognized as one of the top photographers when it comes to male physique art photography. Not o nly has he worked with a large amount of the most beautiful men, he also collaborated with many other photographers who operate in the same genre.
A few years ago, Dylan Rosser made another courageous decision. He left the busy hub of London and settled in Ibiza. Though a summer paradise where many beautiful men will spend one or more weeks to party and tan, winters can get pretty lonely on the Iberian island. Still his move to Ibiza has not undermined his leading position as male photographer. If anything, it has lead to his popularity. It seems that the fact Ibiza is less accessible than London has made people only want to work more with Dylan than ever. Hence the launch of his successful publication Naked Ibiza, a high quality photo book of male nudes photographed on location in Ibiza over the last 4 years. It was Dylan’s first kickstarter project and so successful that he decided to launch another one.
Dylan Rosser recently started his second kickstarter campaign for his next book project called ‘wet’, a large scale photo book featuring the naked male body. In the shower, in the pool, in the sea, but always wet. Having photographed many images over the last decade, Dylan wanted to focus on a theme rather than a random selection of work. Looking over thousands of images, it became clear to him that beaches, pools, seas and showers feature so heavily in his best work. Since he never works with clothing, here instead he uses water, almost like a fabric, washing over the body… and so the ‘wet’ book was born…
Considering there will be portrait’s in ‘wet’ that Dylan Rosser took over the many years he has been active as photographer, one could think ‘wet’ is an anthology. However, the book will include many never seen before photo’s and brand new work, which makes ‘wet’ an absolute must for the Dylan Rosser fan and the male form admirer. ‘Wet’ is a hardcover photo book with dust jacket, approximately 100 pages and will measure 10¼ x 13½ inches / 26 x 34 cm, printed on heavy stock, and high quality photo paper. Be first in line to get a copy of “wet”, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Please keep in mind that “wet” will be hitting bookstores and Amazon later in Summer 2017, but by backing the campaign, backers will receive this large dcale photography book in Spring 2017. Be the first to enjoy it! –BM-
