Farm Boy Henrico

6 March 2019

In the depths of the bare streets of Cape Town Henrico (Full Circle Models) moves silently, yet fluidly, catching the eyes of the occassional passerby. Mesmerising them for a moment or two with his poignant and endearing gaze. The South African humidity lies seamlessly in the air, the clear sky and architecture offering it's ode to the series.

Captured by photographer Katinka Bester in this strikingly beautiful monochromatic tones, we watch as Henrico's quietly quirky personality and farm boy beginnings are captured effortlessly and timelessly, encapsulating him amongst the greyish tones. His eyes wide and deep, story-telling and captivating. His off-beat expressions give a relatable twist to the images, his boyish quirks falling off into a desirable charm.

Stylist Melanie Rossline matches Henrico with young city designers Stiaan Louw and Adriaan Kuiters matching the series with a sought after minimalism.
