Calendar Review: 'Castings 2018' by Rick Day

If you love his books, this CASTINGS 2018 Calendar will definitely not disappoint. The men are some of the finest new models of the year – and for Rick Day that means they are the best. The color reproduction is superb and the quality of the paper is of the highest quality ('suitable for framing' type!). Rick Day is a practiced and highly visible photographer and his specialty seems to be describing the heat of the athletic games he captures so well on film and in his multiple monographs such as PLAYERS, PLAYERS TWO, ALL PLAYERS, PIONEERS, RiCK DAY NYC, CASTINGS 2017 and BEL AMI BOYS. And now this special edition Calendar CASTINGS 2018 is no exception.

Some of the perfectly fit models are subtly nude while others are semi nude with each in restful inviting repose as only Rick Day knows how to capture that late afternoon ennui feeling. Beautifully posed and photographed with and without accoutrements, these twelve men will definitely lighten up the months. Grady Harp, August 17
