Diego Rueda @diegoruedaruiz, with the photographers Edu Pomares @edupomares and Marcos Holland @marcos_holland, presents Bum Boys, a fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the models Martín Carrasco @mcv05, Carlos Delgado @carlosdm10, and Santi Jiménez @santijg represented by Dear Society Model Management @dearsociety.mgmt.
The editorial is inspired by the ‘old rich kids’ aesthetic, although with specific nuances that make it even more groundbreaking. “We weren’t looking to dress the models up as posh boys who seek the approval of their social environment, but rather reflect a totally different type of elite. Specifically, they are the kind of hustlers who use sex as a double-edged sword to show the world that they have money and don’t care about using their bodies for other benefits, especially social status,” says Rueda.
The equipment for the digital photos was a Canon 6D Mark II with an EF 50 mm F/1,8 lens, and for film photos, the photographer used a Contax g1 with 28 mm f2 lens, a Kodak Portra 160 and Hasselblad 500c, and 50 mm f4, Kodak Portra 400. The shooting took place in Parque de María Luisa and Isla de la Cartuja, Sevilla, Spain.
