Duncan for A Place Called Youth

30 November 2012

We’ve been telling you about the upcoming release of our 4th issue “A Place Called Youth” for what feels like forever and finally it has arrived! This means after all of our teasers, we finally bring you preview from the issue, starting with Elite Models London rising star Duncan Pyke. Taken from the brand new Boys by Girls instalment, we present you with a glimpse a Georgie Wileman’s honest editorial shoot with the lovely Duncan. Georgie’s photographs capture beautifully both his vulnerability as well as keeping his distinctive edge. We adore.

Captured in a raw environment, the styling of Celia-Jane Ukwenya, perfectly compliments the surroundings and Duncan himself. This home setting sets the scene for a lot of the shoots in our issue as we get closer to the boys we worked with for "A Place Called Youth". Hair by John Mullan. Make-up by Katherine Gould.

We also managed to sneak in some of Duncan's original artwork in the issue, which shows another element to the talented model. This alone makes the issue even more unique.

If you simply can't wait any longer for "A Place Called Youth" then we are pleased to let you know it is now available on news stands in london for the first time ever and in major cities globally in the coming weeks! Click here to check for stockists.
