Photographer Edgar Vazquez @picsbyedgar, who also took care of the styling in this fashion editorial exclusively created for Vanity Teen online, instantly found inspiration on the lighting and the vintage feel from Allan Hamitouche, a Parisian Photographer, whose photographs are taken in a room with simple window lighting. “As soon as I looked at some of his work I immediately knew I wanted to create the same room feeling and atmosphere.”
To tell the story of a guy spending time on his own, learning about the comforts within solitude, he worked with the gorgeous model Sam Hough @samhough9 represented by BRI’GEID models @brigeid.models, Crawford Models @crawfordmodels, and Crew Model Management @crewmodelmanagement. This editorial reflects the photographer’s subtle style and the ease that most of his images portray. “I like capturing movement and genuine reactions; creating an atmosphere in which my subject is completely free to express himself.”
Shot in the photographer’s place using Nikon D750, he took advantage of the beautiful moldings, the architecture of the room, and the ample lighting of the empty room. Wearing amazing items by Dur Doux, Dirty Denim, Pavlina Jauss, Brixton, Lucille Reynolds, Wing & Weft Gloves, Stefan, and Versace, the model felt very powerful in the clothes he was wearing. As the photographer said, “he was exuding confidence and character”. The editorial transmits that feeling of confidence but at the same time, it also shows isolation and tranquility.
