IBIZA IS KNOWN TO MANY AS THE PARTY PARADISE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN. BUT IBIZA IS SO MUCH MORE. IT’S A PARADISE OF WILD NATURE, SMALL VILLAGES, SECLUDED BEACHES WITH CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER. AND SINCE 4 YEARS IT IS ALSO HOME TO DYLAN ROSSER, ACCLAIMED PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE MALE FORM AND FOR MANY A REFERENCE WHEN IT COMES TO ARTISTIC MALE NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY.
After visiting Ibiza regularly since 2000, Dylan Rosser decided to leave London for it, with the intention of photographing models outdoors in nature, something that was new to him after primarily indoor studio work. He wanted to work with more models in different locations at different times of the year to provide a more vivid picture of this Mediterranean island paradise. Dylan reserved 4 months to shoot the material for project, unknowing that he embarked on a journey that would take 4 years of his life. Now, 4 years later Dylan Rosser is ready to announce his 7th book: Naked Ibiza.
What to expect from Naked Ibiza. No clothing. That is the main rule in all Rosser’s books, in order to guarantee the images are timeless. Something simple, like a brand of swimwear, may be fashionable now, but could be dated 20 years down the line. The nude male form on Ibiza is absolutely timeless. Lots of skin. To Dylan, a full frontal image, even when erect, is not necessarily a sexual image. Personally, he feels all the images in this project are tasteful, but that is very subjective and he wants you to decide how you feel about them. Models, models, models... Dylan Rosser photographed so many guys during this project, but he will only include what he considers to be the best photos so some shoots might not make the cut. However, there will be at least 40 to 50 gorgeous models in this book. “I am very proud of the mix of models who have been part of this project,” Dylan comments on Naked Ibiza. “Some are experienced guys with huge fan bases while others are brand new, but definitely on their way to big success. You will see muscled professional body builders and lean athletic guys. Not every image is a nude, as there are some beautiful portraits of which I am proud, but I am particularly excited about the number of models who agreed to pose full frontal for the first time. That always adds extra pressure on me to create images that show they made the right decision and when you see how they turned out, I know you will agree.”
Naked Ibiza is Dylan Rosser’s most personal book up to date and will definitely become one of those rare photo books that will stand out as a benchmark for male fin art photography. Naked Ibiza is not available yet but Dylan Rosser launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund this vivid and intimate book. The funding goal was raised quickly but there is still some time to back the project and get this beautiful, intimate book before it hits the shelves later next year. To get a copy of “Naked Ibiza” before anyone else, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered by April 2016.
