Hours Of Summer

9 September 2015
Gustavo's long hair hangs either side of his face obscuring any trace of indecision, shaking off any baggage he may have had. He lets his shoulders relax as he sways and twists his limbs in front of the camera.

The imagery is stripped back, dancing through the hours of summer. Almost vulnerable in their aesthetic, inviting an audience to stand and watch as Vilija Kasignaite take her shots of the D1 Models boy. The initial stiffness, the passing jokes, the fleeting warmth of meeting someone through a lens of the camera. Knowing someone and knowing a body photographically are very different things, adding a shutter speed to a relationship adds a dynamic of time bound intensity.

So here is the proof of passing connection, clothed by Neela Gnanderen, who drapes Gustavo in a boyish manner adding to the raw quality that belongs to the images. The styles that hang from him in an offhand, boyish manner. Pieces from Gant Rugger and Levi's come together, brought together with an edge with pieces from Dr.Martens and Palladium.

Raw, intimate and personal.
