Two fine art photography books by DAVID VANCE

$46,211

273

Over the last 40 years my photographs have been published in many coffee table books. PRIVATE PERFORMANCES and MEN AND WATER will be my 13th and 14th monographs. My images of men lean toward the romantic side of eroticism. My work is sexy and sophisticated, influenced by my background in fine art and fashion.

These two books differ greatly in tone. PRIVATE PERFORMANCES is moody and more erotic in nature while MEN AND WATER is light, fun and sexy. Both books celebrate my ideal of masculine beauty.

  •  PRIVATE PERFORMANCES  is a collection of images, moments in time, pieces of personal realities. From expressive faces to bodies in mid air, posers professional and not, giving their all to me and my camera. The photos are personal, sometimes private and sometimes fully exhibitionistic. Think Cirque du Soleil meets Vanity Fair. If you like my past books, you are sure to love this one.

  •  Men and Water will include images that involve water, on and around  beautiful men in various stages of undressed from fully clothed to  totally nude. The photos are sexy, sensual and fun. The mood is light and uplifting.

*The emoji graphics blocking the genitals in the video will obviously not be in the books. 

Pledging to this campaign and helping make these books a reality makes you a very important part of the process. Only with your support can I continue to bring this kind of art into the world. Please make a pledge and tell you friends. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

There really is no risk here. The images are ready to go. The printer is lined up. Once the goal is reached the book will go to the printer in Italy in plenty of time to produce the book by the delivery date.. If the goal isn't reached you won't be charged.
