Max Wallis For Lessons

12 December 2013

If you have been following Boys by Girls for a while, you'll already be familiar with the gentle and poetic soul that is Max Wallis, who is also a wonderful model at Established Models. In our last issue Max was featured with one of his beautiful poems he had written for the issue, and we had to bring more poem magic to our latest issue "Lessons". We were thrilled when we received yet another beautiful poem to share with you.

With such a beautiful way with words, Max focused his "lessons" interpretation around love in his poem "Wildlings".

"Paris, March, when a rainstorm bedded us
in a world of linen and fine clothes; the marble
bath of de Crillon, wide enough for three."

In a setting of East London, Max and Cecilie Harris spent an afternoon together, taking fun photographs while being surrounded by the true London scene. Cecilie describes Max as one of those inspiring models with more than just a pretty face, as they spent their time together talking about life, poetry, inspirations and love. The portrait series of Max is filled with great polaroids and cool lomography shot by Cecilie Harris. Capturing artistic and expressive photos, we send a massive thanks to for lending their lomo cameras to shoot with for the day, and the LomoLab to developing the photos. Cecilie experimented with double exposures and you can see the beautiful results throughout the series. Max is looking very dapper wearing designs by Sandro Homme, Christopher Shannon, and Timberland.

"How fast the stripes, the horizontal lines
smeared the window. Us, around each other
like wild animals away from the storm"

To read Max's beautiful poem, make sure to pick up the fifth BBG issue "Lessons". Click here find out how to get a copy.
