Ricci is one of a handful of photographers who shoot the male nude and do it well. While not exclusively shooting males, it’s for this that he has become best known.

He explains his motivation as follows:

“Male Nude Photography” means more than just pictures of pretty boys in white underpants, or mass produced homo-erotica. My hope is that through my photographs people might appreciate the male body as something perfect, pure and incredibly beautiful, as a piece of art.

In addition to being published in a number of international art magazines and fine art photography books, Ricci’s male nude photographs are held in galleries and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
