Portraits Of Paul Tockuss

6 March 2019

Across the pond, venturing into the cold hues of London City for the first time, Paul Tockuss (IMG Models) shadows a sense of casual cool and effortless beauty in this monochromatic series captured by Sophie Mayanne.

Shooting in the constraints of her own home with her front room as the playing field, Sophie measures the portraits with close frames, searching and pulling a series of emotions of Paul. We see the serene and we see the beautiful, as Paul floats thoughtlessly from frame to frame. Miles away from the Australian sun, Paul's eyes quietly glisten with stories of a new found adventure, the snapshot framing sealing memories and quirks of a trip to remember.

Dasha Kova styles this portrait series in a laid back, casual way to compliment the intimate, mellow feel, and as the shoot comes to an end Paul reminsces the memories of the burger he found last night (he's a self-proclaimed burger connoisseur, we promise).
