His first photo book PlayersA was an outstanding success; with Pioneers photographer Rick Day w delivers a worthy follow up. But this time his way doesn't only lead him in to the photo studio but also outdoors, to the sea, into the mountains and on the meadow. But here, there and everywhere the miracle MAN remains the focus of his works. Day creates an own little dramaturgy for each of his pictures. He talks to the viewer directly and in some ways he obviously likes to play with our expectations a little. Surprising, sexy and strong- Pioneers gives us excellent photo art and breathtaking men on 128 pages.
