Adrien at New Madison

19 March 2014
Jowana has been spoiling us lately presenting our audience (that's you, you beautiful reader, you) with a string of new French model talent from a variety of top model agencies in Paris. This time Paris based photographer Jowana Lotfi captures striking beauty Adrien at New Madison Models in a series of captivating images with cinematic tones.
Adrien Jacques is a beauty with so stunningly striking eyes that Jowana said 'Could make your eyes melt if you gazed directly at them'. Take a glimplse at one portrait in particular in the series and you'll know what she means, with Adrien's piercing blue eyes gazing directly into the camera right at you. A gritty rawness and honesty makes the images more poignant, with Adrien's captivating look framed by simple urban surroundings.
Teaming up with stylist Marko Obradovic, the series is delivered with pieces from Calvin Klein and Zara, adding a classic sense of coolness. Shot in the streets of Paris, the images have a classic beauty about them, with rich sunlit tones lighting the colour images. Deep monochromatic tones hint at Adrien's deep personality, a perfect pairing with his 'happy go lucky' attitude.
They say Paris is the city of love, and we certainly love Jowana's recent Boys by Girls series' of new French faces.
