Originally from South Africa, Dylan Rosser started his career in the graphic design field, working on various lifestyle magazines in Cape Town. Starting out as a junior designer, he worked his way up to art director before moving to London in 1998. It was this move that brought about his change in direction, although his graphic design background still shows through in his work today.
His work, featuring models from around the world, focuses on the sculptural beauty of the male form. Working with light and shadow, his style brings out the athleticism and sensuality of his subjects. Recently he collaborated with Bel Ami to launch Addicted's new collections of streetwear/sportswear, swimwear and underwear. His latest project is Wet, a large scale photo book featuring the naked male body in the shower, in the pool, in the sea, but always… wet!
Dylan dresses his models in beautiful lighting and often times presents those in an almost sterile environment yet bathing them in richly saturated color. His images are stark, erotic and effortless and trust me that is a talent within itself. I am honored to call him my friend and I look forward to seeing where he takes us next. — Rick Day
