Peruvian multi-disciplinary artist Marco Castro @castromarco, who specializes in beauty, filmmaking, and creative direction. His film work explores ideas of immigration, masculinity, and brownness through his lens of elegance, and he now presents a beautiful film exclusively created for Vanity Teen online with the model Sam W. @samw11220 represented by Click Models NY @clickmodelny.
As Marco Castro states, the film exists between reality and fiction. The main character, Sam, represents the current world’s state, yearning to reopen, longing for human connections, being touched, and feeling free again. A very soft and touching idea represented in a very simple but deep and meaningful way.
“My vision of the future is for humanity to be uncomplicated, minimal, and I wanted to affirm that with the styling; a simple pair of jeans by Willy Chavarria and a classic white pair of underwear by Calvin Klein,” says Castro.
