i met andré through mutual friends and we decided to collaborate our efforts to produce these images in preparation for his new york acting school adventures. i really enjoy his company – he’s an intelligent person with a good witty sense of humor. enjoy the outcome of these images with looks as he’s never been seen before!

i’m never quite satisfied with my own work, but then i’m also aware of the fact that an artist will never be contempt. i’ve decided however to begin to showcase some of my design work.
i would like to present the work i did for Origo – capetonian boy called ‘chris’ is doing a wonderful job at creating his reality! he designs and manufactures designer couches, at an affordable, less pretentious rate. after hours & hours of pisces deliberation we concluded our design process with this icon.

i must confess… i was quite hesitant in drafting this post, all of sudden since london 2012 olympics inspired homo-erotic images popped up all over the internet and it was quite boring to view. however, upon all my friends insisting that i post these, i thought i shall. these were shot last year on a sunny afternoon, on location in stellenbosch, south africa starring leon niewoudt (with elite london & kult germany) needless to say, i had to dive into this concept as an experiment and i was quite satisfied with the outcome!
since i saw the first images on google of bonny & clyde during my teenage days, i’ve been perplexed with the fact that they were ugly & lower class people in contrast to the conceptual idea i had that they were stylish and classy. leon (from south africa, with elite london & kult germany) and the flexi dominika (from prague) were happy to play and compose these images. shot on location in stellenbosch, south africa.
