A tall figure strides onto set on a quiet Sunday morning, a head of slightly wild hair and chilling summer light defining a clear-cut jawline. Existing in front of the camera he seems unaware of his artistry; seemingly untroubled by vanity, attraction or effort. His marble strength isolates him from onlookers; all eyes steadily glued to him.
As Clark begins to spark up conversation, you soon come to realise he is not that distant from you; an 18 year old from Bristol who’s interests consist of football and going to the pub. His magnetic personality comes through as he confesses his unusual love for cheese and honey sandwiches and his slightly naïve fear of clowns. Clark has been shot as a new face for Boys by Girls previously, and now 3 years on, you can see how much he has matured – from a youthful boy next door to a modern day gentleman, who has now been involved in LCM presentations for the likes of Jonathan Saunders and Kit Neale.
Cinematized by photographer Sophie Mayanne, she uses a minimal white wall to alienate Clark, striving in front of the camera, doing what he appears to do best. Dasha Kova stunningly brings out the cavalier boy in him using straight lines and shapes, contrasting colours and nimble, classic styles using designers like Matthew Miller, Scotch & Soda and Natural Selection to name a few.
As the shoot draws to a close, pulling his coat over his shoulders, he saunters back to the real world, still turning heads.
