Swedish photographer Dan Sjölund @photographer_dan_sjolund presents this beautiful black and white fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the handsome model Denis Rusaks @denis_rusaks represented by Select Model Global @selectmodelglobal.
For this editorial, Dan Sjölund keeps his favorite combination of classic beauty and the more raw style of photography drawing inspiration from the classic Calvin Klein shoots as well as David Sims’s shoots for Arena Home+.
“My idea was to capture Denis in a raw and beautiful way, both masculine and sensitive.”Dan Sjölund
The equipment used to create this editorial was Profoto lighting equipment and a Canon camera. It took place at a small studio in the center of Stockholm named Mud Studios, owned and run by the former assistant of Mikael Jansson.
“I wanted to create something that’s nice today, tomorrow, and the day after that.”
The team really did an amazing job creating this timeless and really beautiful fashion editorial. The model Denis is just amazing, always with good vibes, a happy kid, he really gives you his everything without doubting himself, and we know he can go far in this industry!
