New Face: Joel At First Models

6 March 2019

Within the corridors of a tower block building, Amber Grace Dixon captured First Models beauty Joel. Teaming up with stylist Lucy Alexandra Hamilton the girls created an authentic and raw collection of photographs.

Amber is a BBG regular fave, and this time she give us a story through the eyes of this beautiful boy. Adorned with golden hoops enhancing his unique features and with his body hosting a design of intricate tattoos, Joel is a natural walking art piece making him stand out from the crowd, creating another dimension to his personality. Music notes dotted behind his ear, literally wearing his heart on his sleeve. His face is a paradox of hard and soft, giving him a powerful, almost menacing look. Contrasted with his more vulnerable side, with his sparkling eyes and freckled sprinkled face, you get a feel of diversity and intrigue.

Lounging in his dungarees, roaming the streets in his worn American leather jacket, or representing the sprit of a new age skin-head in his rolled up tracksuit, white socks and Dr Marten's, he looked amazing.
