Teenage Daze

23 July 2015

Do you remember those teenage days free of all troubles? Where you could run around the park being silly without a single care in the world? Laughing at the simplest things and screaming at the outright ridiculous? He closes his eyes and thinks back to those precious days in the skate park.

In this exclusive series for Boys by Girls photographer Melissa Marcello captures Alexandru Gorincioi at Fashion Models. Alexandru embraces his youthful, honest side as he gazes into the lens and beyond. Melissa carefully snaps away, intimately bringing each portrait to life with blissful ease.

Stylist Marta Martinez Regidor plays with the concept of natural geometry, dressing Alexandru exclusively in Tom Rebl. Merging Alexandru's easy going youth with clean cut lines, his personality quietly comes to light. Makeup artist Vanessa Icareg works along side Marta to enhance Alexandru’s flawless complection and natural skin to complete the look.

Get lost in your thoughts. Embrace the unknown. These are the moments that are yours.
