Farith Lara @farithlara is a Colombian photographer based in Bogotá. His passion for fashion has allowed him to build an artistic character inspired by a cultural and historical environment. Using light as a tool, he creates innovative concepts. A dreamer and passionate photographer, his curiosity for the unique values that colors contain has allowed him to tell true visual stories. Committed to his work, he puts his tenacity, honesty, and passion into what he does and he has created this gorgeous fashion editorial exclusively for Vanity Teen online!
He worked with the handsome models Louis @davidluiss_, Nicolay @nicolay_ovc, Alejandro @alejandrojacome_, Cristian @cristianmartinez9, and Dave @davesegurac, all represented by Iris Models @irismodelagency, to tell a very beautiful story. Feminine beauty is always highlighted but rarely that of men. Through this editorial, the team wanted to show all the profiles that they have in their country, profiles that are now highly valued. Keeping the aesthetics really clean and simple, playing with black and white and skin tones, what the photographer wanted was to create a game between the models, playing with the contrasts of skin tones and personal features. The result is a very aesthetically pleasing editorial.
“The poses are very relaxed so we wanted to convey confidence and peace with who we are because each of us has a natural beauty,” says the photographer. He worked with the stylists Fabián Rodríguez @fabiancrodriguez16 who did an amazing job showcasing the editorial’s main theme, with simple and classic items such as the Calvin Klein Boxers, jean, white tank tops, and black sweaters. Fabián Rodríguez worked two years backstage for the Bogotá Fashion Week in 2018 and 2019 and currently runs his eponymous brand “FABIÁN RODRÍGUEZ” in which he develops collections for women and men, and leather goods and accessories such as purses and bags. He also works in the styling part for photography in editorial fashion.
The result is just incredible and we couldn’t be happier with this amazing fashion editorial!
