“Every shoot is an encounter, an action on a specific moment, a scene. I aim to disrupt the poses of the person in front of me, from the natural to the unreal. I push the model to its boundaries to create a move or a series of movement to capture. It is like a geography of the body; let the body create its inner sculpture.” so Fotograf Arnaud Ele, repräsentiert von GoSee Member Cosmopola, über seine Vorgehensweise beim Shoot. Wir zeigen Dir hier seine Strecke für das NASTY Magazin. Gestylt wurden die Modelle Rafaela Bosi und Alice Oberhag von KALI LEUZZI c/o PERFECTPROPS. Art Direction lag in den Händen von Laura Knoops.
About - NASTY. The dusky side of Arts and Fashion. Nasty showcases fashion, art and culture with a radical attitude. More than hundreds of talented artists, fashion designers, photographers have already been published on these pages, contributing with their visions to create a unique essay on the true heart of the contemporary aesthetic. Certain things are inter-connected. Nothing is predictable. The patterns of life have gone haywire. 99% of the World is a global soup. We want to challenge the ready-made lifestyle materials. But our anxieties have anxieties. While our thoughts want to change direction. And our minds could never return to their original dimensions. Because we do not like everything, and we support a hierarchy of values. But the demand is to be clear. And the temptation is to be obscure. Nasty is our way of delineation and your modern visual consciousness. GoSee: nastymagazine.com

About - ARNAUD ELE. Established in Switzerland for more than ten years, Arnaud Ele studied filmmaking at the Geneva Film School. Following a trip back to Cameroon in 2015, his original home, where he spent the first five years of his life, he starts to explore the notions of territory, identities, within its codes and associated representations. Arnaud Ele became known not only for his fashion photography, but also for his documentary series in Switzerland and Cameroon, as well as his many video collaborations with artists, singers and dancers from the art scene in Switzerland.
Wherever he goes, he focuses on the notion of intimacy. Wondering about the ways of inhabiting the territories and their uses, as well as the way in which nature and human occupation intertwine, he has always endeavored to push back the limits of the documentary. He reveals, under the innocuous appearance of its scenes, hidden stories. He defends the view of the human eye as a method of recording and intimacy as a mode of description. His photographic work is the continuity of his training as a filmmaker: the intuitive scenario of the image, the exploration of new narrative forms representing the moment with veracity.

JOSEPH FORD c/o COSMOPOLA präsentiert hier bei GoSee sein neues Art-Projekt für SCHÖN MAGAZINE. “Joseph Ford wanted to explore the challenges of teen life. Paperboy is a metaphor for difference: how do you fit in when you’re made of cardboard? He can’t keep up with his friends at basketball, and he’s scared to go in the water. When he eventually tries paddling in the sea, his shoe falls apart. His crew looks out for him though, repairing his foot and helping him do cardboard graffiti in huge low-poly lettering…”
Joseph Ford introduces us to paperboy, Sid Hanson-Kahn, and his friends Woody Cook, Lucas Bonacorso and Jack Cox in this Schön! online editorial. Fashion by Laura Walters sees them in an array of outfits, selected from brands including E. Tautz, John Lawrence Sullivan, Xander Zhou, Napa by Martine Rose, Daniel Fletcher, and Astrid Andersen (photography: Joseph Ford, paper artist: Jaina Minton, fashion: Laura Walters, model paperboy: Sid Hanson-Kahn, models: Woody Cook @ PRM, Lucas Bonacorso @ Nevs + Jack Cox @ Nevs, production: James Hole, retouching: Jonny @ Pop 35, photography assistants.
