By Grady Harp TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 15 2011
Format: Hardcover
Dylan Rosser was born in South Africa, became well known for his graphic design talents and in 1998 moved to London where he began his very successful career in photography. Rosser photographs male models in both New York City and Los Angeles and his works have been published in tow highly honored books - X-POSED and RED. In NAKED Rosser seems to be gradually eliminating supportive props and themes and now an approach the male nude in full color, beautifully detailed images that are likely some of the the finest and most refined works in this genre.

Rosser uses minimal backgrounds for his photographs - at time the background is simple white space, while at other times he uses a burnished wet silver sheen that sets of skin tonalities magnificently well. Other images are incidental 'sets', such as empty gyms or deserted buildings or the mere suggestion of a support system such as a corner, a wall, a couch, a ladder. From these setting he brings in a bevy of incredibly well sculpted models - alone and at times with another model - and from this combination of lighting, pristine judgement in composition, and extraordinarily virile and handsome men he makes images that are at one both art and sensuality. The manner in which he engages the models' eyes or paints theit bodies with water, light and shadow is nothing less than fine art.

There is a sense of intimacy here, a sense that Rosser seems to invite us, the viewer, into the arena of his edification of the male form. it is a very tempting invitation and one that will please the eyes and thoughts of the reader. Grady Harp, December 11

Beautiful Book Jan. 24 2012
By Neon the Glowgobear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

The best yet from Mr. Rosser Dec 4 2011
By Paul A. Dirks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

Best collection of Rosser's works to-date! Dec 4 2011
By John Renner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

Exquisite photography, fairly conventional subject matter April 16 2013
By Allen Smalling - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Not all that great! Sept. 20 2012
By Danny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
