Jacob McNorton for Issue 12

6 March 2019

Falling. Day by day, faster than you imagined. Running out of time.

Time; a construct we have become enslaved to, not even tangible - so why do we run our lives so strictly to it? Youth will be over before you had time to feel entirely comfortable within it. We spend a few years trying to work our youth out, and the rest of it wishing ourselves back to it.

Those little nuggets of time that simply disappears, lost to hours of procrastination, your mind ambling down tricky alleys that misplace those treasured hours. Finding yourself running out of time. Chasing the time that remains within his boyhood, Jacob McNorton at Elite Models is captured within the folds of our latest issue 'Young Hearts'.

Photographed by Cecilie Harris and fashioned by David Nolan, Jacob's sweet moments of boyhood are documented softly and beautifully. Counting days, hours and minutes, each beholding their own mystery before they are lost. You can’t have them back, but what you created within them are yours to keep forever. So you might as well make it all count. Make sure you don't loose the hours, before you had time to fill them with moments you want to collect.

Take in the full editorial, ’The Lost Hours', beyond the brief teasers below, in our brand new Spring Summer edition ‘Young Hearts', available to buy online and in stores now.
