Elias Rønnenfelt For Issue 9

6 March 2019
"He is clever, strong willed, sullen, defensive and vulnerable... All at the same time"
In Issue 9 "Growing Sideways" we will tell you the little things we have learnt about Elias. The little aspects that drew Linda Brownlee's lens to this boy. Front man of Danish band Iceage, Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, drew our attention with just a little honesty, bringing up the cliché boys with guitars can fall into, the tropes and how once you are given the chance to live out those clichés - do you create anything with "emotional gravity".
That is just the thing about gravity, it brings you down to earth, down where everyone else lives. This gravity gives his words weight and consideration. In the 10-page print feature he talks about what the audience take out not being his first focus, it is what he puts in that matters - and what he has put in is thoughtful, and not just the recycled clichés of a boy with a guitar.
Linda delivers a colourful series of authentic and beautiful images that reflect the words he has spoken to us, mirroring the sullen, the vulnerable, the slow pace he assumed with these poses, as if in reality he'd been sitting that way the entire time waiting for an image to be taken.
To look further into Elias's words and Linda Brownlee's images in our latest print issue you can pick up your very own copy of Issue 9 either in a stockist near you or from our website.
