"Modern Gentleman" - Boom Magazine

It's pretty rare in Hong Kong to find models with tattoos, in Australia most would probably have them, but here it's completely the opposite. Since the aesthetic is so clean here, models tend to be as well, so finding one with long hair, facial hair or tattoos, proves quite difficult. I was just about to give up on the search but some how stumbled across Lukas, who was perfect for this shoot. Check it out below or click the link to see the full feature up close on page 26.

"The Speed Of Sound" - Hysteria Magazine

I worked on this editorial a little while back and it's finally published with Hysteria Magazine, the Voices issue. 

For this theme, I decided to take a scientific approach, and broke down what "voice" and "sound" literally is.
pronounced [vois]
- The sound produced in a person's larynx and uttered through the mouth, as speech or song.
pronounced [sound]
- Produced by continuous and regular vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person's or animal's ear.
Check out the spread below for the result. Or this small animation of the glitches in action.

Stylist - Juan-Carlos Aquino
