The charming content of gathered dew on windows and the smell of morning rain drying off the hard, busy tarmac. The days you spend entirely alone, the therapeutic 'me' time that is needed every once in a while. A mass of lounge clothes, duvets and cups of tea, or maybe even something a little bit out of the ordinary because nobody is going to be seeing you today. Photographer Shaira Luna captures Dimitri, IM Agency Manila, on one of these days in this intimate set of portraits.
"Their beauty is like the beauty of plants, seemingly untroubled by vanity, anxiety or effort.”
Sauntering from kitchen to bedroom to garden, Dimitri is captured in a way of longing and mystery in this collection of dim, but dreamy images. Sporting a pair of worker-style dungarees, lit from the onlooking window, illuminates bone structure, muscle and skin - making you think back to the very basics of the human body and the raw nature of it all. Shaira composes this set perfectly, contrasting the pure interest in this boy with the deadpan temperament of the world around him.
Don't you wish you looked just as good on your days off?
