PLAYERS was the first photo book from Rick Day. And just like his models he loves to play with the expectations of the contemplator. Superficially itвЂ™s all about sports, about immaculate and trained bodies in chunky rugby wear, tight trunks or simply naked. But Rick Day is not just taking pictures of masculine sex appeal. His work impresses with an almost corporeal tension.
An interaction of straightforwardness and intimacy keeps on questioning: Who is the subject and who is the object?PLAYERS became a huge success and was the artistвЂ™s first bestsellerвЂ” followed by the 2010 release PIONEERS.
Rick DayвЂ™s photographs are perfectly staged. He abstains from dispensable settings and adopts colours very carefully. DayвЂ™s men do use this free space offered by their photographer. Sober and superior they act out their exhibitionism, almost devouring the contemplator but still with a strictly signalized distance.
