Boys of Premier: Youri

3 July 2013

This week we bring you our third Boys of Premier installment, where photographer Cecilie Harris introduces the beautiful Youri in a serene series of black and white portraits. Grooming by Jennifer Parker. This lovely young Belgian has been working mostly in Paris and Milan since he started modelling last year, but is finally in London and tells us he is loving the busy buzz of the city and apparently how polite our taxi drivers are .. hmm.

Cecilie captures Youri in simple clothing and soft light, highlighting his natural boyish beauty and tranquil soul. He moves with a serenity that creates a soft and dreamlike atmosphere to these images, showing him as the ultimate gentlemen that he is, calm, good natured and handsome. There is something so charming about Youri that shines in these imagesl and in short he was an absolute dream to work with, opening doors for our team as we went to location and ending the day with three very Belgian kisses. We are excited to have Youri in London for a while and hope that next time he comes he brings us some of his famous Belgian chocolates.
