New Face: Ben At AMCK

6 March 2019

Every now and then a new kid appears on the scene that has such an effortless way about them that it's hard not to get captivated by the images they create with the photographer. Ben Rees has that power. Along with his natural boyish charm, Ben has the magic to create these moments with an effortless approach and by just "being”. Unaware of the camera, Ben turned himself into a BBG fave of a day with this captivating series.

Scouted only a couple of months back by AMCK Models, within the first few weeks of his newfound career Ben walked in his first fashion show and graced the pages of Fucking Young Magazine. Now Sophie Mayanne photographs Ben in a beautiful monochromatic series for Boys by Girls.

This beautiful set of shaded images shows Ben's fresh face, his boyish hair and cute freckles. Together with stylist Daria Moseikova, photographer Sophie captures not just the initial beauty of this boy, but gives us little insight into what lies beneath. Styled in an amalgamation of minimalist pieces from Common's cashmere black polo, cleanly cut to faultlessly frame his face and highlight the dappled freckles, to one of Montana Heritages' staples, the Tee, for this new face making minimalist maximist is a casual affair.

Through the imagery we see numerous aspects of Ben's character; the detailed pattern of his freckled face and his youthful charm, painting a picture that scratches just the surface of what he is about. He holds a power that could take him far. There are the models that pose and the models that act, and Ben has the ability to do both in perfect combination.
