Grey Rainbows

27 April 2016

Back and forth, lumbering through an emotional odyssey; leaping from room to room in a desperate search into the unknown chambers of your mind. Fight, kick and scream; caged in and drowning in nothing but your own thoughts; desperation strikes. Resplendent riches for the poorest of minds, your life is left in a spectrum of grey.

In his first appearance for Boys by Girls, Kevin Chan, a freelance model who previously enjoyed a period with IM Models, echoes a troubled soul attempting to shake the shackles of past memories in an attempt to make room for the new. Photographed by Shaira Luna, Kevin breaks free from his tropological confinements to persue an elusive sense of self.

Black and white hues compliment the chic minimalism posed through the sartorial styling of Angelo Ramirez de Cartagena. Attention to detail matters. Kevin’s restraints are physically encapsulated through the Wolfe + Huntr harness locked across his chest. Yet as he bathes in the soft afterglow of dusk, Shaira Luna shows another side of Kevin. One that is at peace with his thoughts at the lighter end of the rainbow.
