Portraits Of Sanel Beciri

6 March 2019

Photographer Bettina Genten takes to a clean and uncluttered environment to capture Ulla Models' Sanel Beciri. Black and white shots are intertwined with snippets of colour as Sanel breezes effortlessly through the landscape frames. Off white curtains paint a picturely backdrop, and a hint of a plant reminds us of the nearing Spring. As our eyes are averted from frame to frame, Sanel's eyes greet us with an array of mesmerising expressions. We are left wondering, simply wondering, just what he could be thinking.

An inquisitive mind, Sanel's looks display an underlying position of intrigue, as he allows his piercing eyes to gaze into the lens and beyond. Framed by thick brows and an assymetric sidebob, his distinctively mesmerising look is one we steadily grow impartial to. As the series meanders on, we see Bettina frame each inquisitve gaze with a refreshed angle, searching for a prequisite, an insight into the story behind the mesmerising eyes.

A simplistic and effortless styling aesthetic is drawn into the series, sitting hand in hand with the minimal setting. Marie Mores uses a mixture of brands and a vintage vibe, toying with the casual possibilites of the series.
