New Face: Tancrede at Success

29 January 2014

In this beautiful series photographer Jowana Lotfi introduces us to the lovely Tancrede at Success Models in Paris. With piercing eyes and unique characteristics, we can see why this male beauty creates such powerful imagery. Jowana captures Tancrede in a series of monochromatic, mixed in with colour portraits that delve into a soul beyond his years. Stylist Marko Obradovic compliments the images with a classic edge, drawing us to a splash of colour with a rich red jumper.

Tancrede currently resides in Paris, and with a passion for film is currently in his first year studying Cinema at University. Set in the local neighbourhood, an urban feel frames Tancrede with cinematic tones.

Having previously been seen in Dazed and Confused, we are excited to see what else Tancrede will be up to. We’re sure we’ll be seeing these piercing eyes and elfin ears again.
