Tim Sprague For Issue 7

26 January 2015

Closed eyes and thoughts that wander through far away places. Moments that escape the monotonous tone of the outside world. Deep inside the pages of Issue 7, we observe a new kind of silence: Tim Sprague (Nevs Models) and his ideas.

Another issue 7 preview teaser for you. Tim is no stranger to Boys By Girls having shot with Editor-in-Chief Cecilie Harris previously this year (The Art Experiment and Second Star To The Right). This time captured inside the vacant space of his own home, Cecilie intimately photographs the unbeknown solitude of being an artist. Residing amongst the monochrome tones of Impossible Instant Analogue, Tim's expressive personality is both serene and beautiful.

The trust between photographer and model is a key component in this Issue 7 story, a trust that comes only from prior collaboration. It is almost as if Cecilie's presence is unknown, and the unpolished images utter the truths of the sanctuary a home can be. This is Boys by Girls at it's core.

Join us inside Tim's quietly beautiful world by getting your very own copy of Issue 7, out now in shops or online here.
