We caught up with one of our FAV photographers, RICK DAY, who we were fortunate enough to work with last year and who just launched his Kickstarter campaign for the highly anticipated New book CASTINGS BY RICK DAY and here is what he had to say regarding the new coffee table photography art book.
“Castings is a project that I had in the back of my mind for many years. I published my first book ‘Players’ with Bruno Gmunder 8 years ago. I was always fascinated by an athlete’s physique and wanted to capture them in their most intimate moments. The result was a series of highly intimate erotic images of athletes.As hard as it was to find models to pose for my first book, the next books, thanks largely to the success of Players and the explosion of social media, finding models became much easier. I ended up doing 4 more books with my publisher.
The last book, Belami, was shot over three years in three continents and captured the beauty of the Belami models, giving the viewer a behind the scene look at the Belami world. Not the on camera sex but the youthfulness, playfulness and charm of these models. This behind the scene is really the idea for this new book Castings. It’s like a journal of my daily life. Everything from models coming by for a go/see, outtakes from various jobs, or models just fooling around on set. A fun, cheeky, very sexy collection of images featuring top agency models and instagram ‘celebrities’. Uninhibited, daring, fun and definitely not always Instagram friendly.
This is my first book that I am self publishing. It is the first of a two part limited edition book. CASTINGS Vol. 1 will only be available during this Kickstarter. Once this Kickstarter ends, there will be no second edition of this first volume printed, EVER.”
The G Life can’t wait to get our copy of of this special limited edition, Rick Day never disappoints!!
