Naleye & Haegan For Issue 6

22 May 2014

There's something about New York. I'll always remember my first time there, its freedom and contagious youth that hit you in the face and turn you into a New York Kid.

Continuing from her issue 5 editorial with Jakob Morton, a lot of you would already be in love with Ira's effortles and natural approach to photography. In this series, NYC based photographer Ira Chernova photographs two models from New York Model Management, Naleye and Haegan. Completely unstyled, set in a New York flat, she tells the story of two New York kids. These two fresh faces boys embodies everything that is cool, young, urban and efforless, just like the city. Her digital meets polaroid approach to photography is again a perfect combination, in this beautiful black and white intimate image series.

Captured in the intimacy of a home environment, the boys look like they're waiting for something. They don't try to act, they're just there, living their life. We are almost expecting Naleye to play music from his electronic music collective, Illuminati AMS or Haegan to show us the drawings he told us about in his interview. They are cool kids.
