Harry Curran For Issue 6

22 April 2014

There is something about Harry Curran. Perhaps it's how calm his presence is. At 6 foot 2 with long brown hair that lands below his shoulders, you would expect a rockstar personality, but instead you get something a little bit more intriguing, a little bit magical and very down to earth. "I feel like you're the kind of guy who has a lot of secrets" Editor-in-Chief Cecilie Harris says as she removes her lens cap, ready to capture the inner beauty of the AMCK Models boy.

This brings you a little taste of the 12-page opening story for the sixth Boys by Girls issue “The Truth About Boys” featuring the coolest dude on the catwalk. Cecilie wanted to dig a little deeper into his story and passions to find more of his truths. That is in fact what this issue is all about. Something true and something real, letting the boys truly shine.

Harry's passion lies in art, which reflects the unique, inspiring and intriguing personality of Harry. Often inspired by fantastical worlds and dream-like lands, his art work makes us wonder just what goes on in the corners of his head. Perhaps a word one would use to describe Harry is humble; whenever a compliment is thrown his way, he remains hidden beneath his long hair and lets out a small chuckle as his cheeks blush a rosy red. Not aware of the power of his beauty, Harry is one of those guys that will chose to climb trees with his little brother and cousins over any extravagant event. He has our respect.

Set in a relaxing home environment, Cecilie wanted Harry to feel as relaxed as possible in order for his beauty to shine through each photograph in her monochromatic series. Stylist Alexander Harley brought in some of the best British designers for the shoot; Paul Smith and McQ by Alexander McQueen amongst them. Mixing the high fashion garments with more laid-back looks by Levi's and a few vintage pieces, the looks consisted of an edgy meets classic style. Harry looked completely at home in soft knitwear by Costume National, a soft cotton t-shirt by Dries van Noten and crisp McQ denim jeans.

For more beautiful photography and Harry's full editorial, issue 6 "The Truth About Boys” is out in shops now as well as available to order online.
