It's a great book if you aren't offended seeing guys naked.

Rosser's ability to create the former and to elicit the latter from his models is amazing.

Not only is this book beautifully bound, it is filled with beautiful photographs of some of the most handsome and athletic men I have seen in a book of this sort. The images really convey the beauty and masculinity of the human form.

Each photo in this book has a wonderful pair of characteristics: utter simplicity and intense eroticism. Rosser's ability to create the former and to elicit the latter from his models is amazing. No disappointments here, quite the contrary.

Dylan Rosser's new book, "Naked", is a beautifully designed and printed book of his newest male nudes. This collection of images is well-conceived and there is not a "weak" photo in the book.
Rosser is foremost a portraitist: it all starts with the eyes.
But with his selection of amazingly-proportioned men enhanced by his masterful lighting, the combination produces images with several levels of sculptural eroticism.
It's no surprise that, after 2 weeks receiving my copy from Amazon, it is sold-out!
I highly recommend purchasing this excellent work by a young yet mature artist.

Format: Hardcover
NAKED is a coffee-table book of nude male photographs by Dylan Rosser, who makes London his base and whose work has been described as "raw and edgy." The shots are beautiful, especially the wonderfully lit close-ups that draw on the sensuous beauty of skin "clothed in light" as one supporter says, but I would not describe this collection as "raw and edgy," not in this post-Mappelthorpe age. Models are certainly attractive but run to a type -- slim, handsomely muscled men in their twenties, overwhelmingly white. Tattoos and piercings are minimal. There are close-ups and duets, but posterior shots are almost nonexistent; the average model is full-frontal and generously endowed; semi-erections are common but there are also some full erections. Cubs, chubs, bears, beards and older men need not apply. From fashion to art to erotica and porn, these are probably the kind of men most often celebrated for their bodies -- including gay men -- and as such Rosser celebrates them well. Just do not expect much variety.

Based on all the positive reviews for this book, I decided to take a chance and purchased it... The book is published by Bruno Gmunder and they always do a great job with the craftsmanship and printing of the book. However the subject matter wasn't all that great in my opinion. The models didn't appeal to me much and the images seem too soft and lack contrast. The cover is probably the best photo in the book.

Format: Hardcover
Dylan Rosser is one of the most famous male photographers in the world as he has been shooting pictures of naked men for over 20 years. This book is tasteful with absolutely gorgeous photographs of the male body for all people to enjoy. I have always loved Dylan's work, but he really outdid himself with "Naked" as he brings one of God's most wonderful creations to life: the male body. Upon looking at the glossy pictures you see the wonders of the male form, not just penises. You appreciate the male feet, chest, face, legs and so much more that make up the male body. I simply couldn't put this down.

This would make a wonderful gift for that special gay guy or woman.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
To say that this photographer is skilled is like saying fish know how to swim. Artistically and technically, only exquisiteness is shown. The images of two guys "embracing" I did not that much favor -- but they were also superbly done -- this is just my opinion -- maybe I am to "straight" laced. Anyway, I am happy to have this book.

What is amazing is that the set ups -- that is to say poses and backgrounds are extremely simple. "Simple" here is a synonym for superb -- anyway I adore simplicity and so does Nature. Notice that there are only two sexes and two numbers in computers.

This book is definitely worth buying. The only thing I did not like and this goes for all photo books is when an image spans two pages and there is a break in the middle -- there are just of few of those images. I am still trying to get used to the idea that "erection shots" are art: anyway "they" are normal and guys and their partners are not happy when they do no occur when appropriate.

It is always a delight to experience something that is superbly done!

I purchased this book and have enjoyed it thoroughly. The men presented are virile, sexy, and ballsy. Each photo showed a naked man. Some were posed strategically so that no genitals or buns could have been seen. Others featured nice, firm bare asses and others featured full frontal nudity. All of the men were hairy, hot and hung. These men had the balls to bare their balls. Woof!
