As passionate as Cecilie Harris is about her photography, whenever possible she also enjoys capturing the model through film and moving image, which comes across just as beautifully as her photographs.
Today we bring you a short teaser video to wet your appetite for the new Boys by Girls issue "Lessons". Featuring Matthew Bell, the video is a little extra something to go along with his 10-page feature in the magazine. The main concept behind the story is Matthew's incredible growth, both as a model and a person - Boys by Girls has supported the Elite Models London boy for a few years now so we thought it was about time we celebrated his success.
The video shows some behind the scenes footage of the shoot and features a very sophisticated Matthew, styled beautifully by Chad Burton in designers including Vivienne Westwood, Christian Lacroix, James Long and Katie Eary. Cecilie and Chad wanted to capture the grown up side of Matthew and reflect this through carefully selected garments.
With mysterious, eclectic music by Le Mystere Des Voix Bulgares, the video makes you feel excited for Matthew, eager to know what future adventures are in store for the model. The music and setting of Hotel Verta by Rhombus also symbolise Matthew's worldliness, as his career takes him to every corner of the globe. To view "Matthew 2.0" in full, head over here to get your own copy of "Lessons".
