Boys Town for JON Magazine
This is my latest editorial work featured in the December 2013 issue of JON Magazine, a UK based menswear publication. I shot this with my friends Saty + Pratha back in November right before it started to get really frigid here in Toronto. Taras @ Elite agency was our model for the day and Olivia Colacci @ Plutino did the hair/makeup.
Originally titled "Drifter", S+P had come up with a story about a lone hitman or 'anti-hero' type of leading man - an elusive, well dressed, macho kind of bad boy. We started out the day in an industrial area of Toronto, then after a bit of car trouble, made our way back to their studio for some indoor shots as well.
The finished story features only black and white in the printed issue, but I was in love with the pops of bright red and royal blue featured throughout in both the clothing and the locations so I have included some unpublished images as well.
Special thanks to a few local brands such as Thomas Balint and Christopher Bates for lending clothing as well as shops such as Gravity Pope, Over The Rainbow and Mama Loves You Vintage.
