MINOLTA SUMMER

My summer through the lens of the Minolta that changed my life and produced 265 profile pictures for the closest around me.

MOROCCO pt1

2 456 kilometres driven, 65 failed attempts at speaking French & 42 Café au laits. 3 hours of being scrubbed down in a hot house, 2 best friends & 1 Peugeot 207.   

This is my long overdue, Morocco part 1. 

 

 

ILRETALLACK

Wrapped up Fashion Week by draping myself around town wearing all the looks from the best in local menswear. Shout out to Juanes, Akim and the rest of the team who brought this to life.

AMSTERDAMAGE

Two weeks ago I set of to Europe for a few days. Apart from eating 47 stroopwafels, being that guy in the club screaming 'I'm from Africa' and getting cycled home at 8am - I managed to take some cool photies. 

Note to self, no matter where you are in the world, if you try and steal the mic during a Pat Benetar hit single you WILL get hit. (I ran)

Love Runs Out

So what started over a year ago with me taking my shirt off in the club has finally reached a point where the end is so stunningly in sight. 

Those of you who know me well, know I've spent a good 10 years now living vicariously through High School Musical's Troy. It's pretty ironic that I now get to be in my first role ever on screen as character called Troy. Good things come to those who wait/take their clothes off in Evol right?

What a ride it has been surrounded by ridiculously talented actors, the crew/fam at Muti and of course the famed Roger Young. I've grown up so much, chain smoked many Marlboro Lights, been groped by a homeless person, faked an acid trip, hooked up with 89% of the cast & pretended to be a local bad boy who sleeps with more people than my Instagram following. 

We are now in the final stretch, emotions are high & there is more stress than the amount of freelance creatives in Cape Town. We are crowdfunding our last little bit of money to make this film a reality - Love Runs Out crowd fund. We would greatly appreciate any support to help us to bring our baby to life & in doing so place a brick in my long road to hopefully becoming the male Charlize Theron.

All my <3

H&M Fall in love

Inspired by their global campaign #HMFallInLove, H&M South Africa collaborated with Peter Georgiades and I to bring their autumn collection for modern-day romantics to life.

We were asked to interpret ‘love’ in our own way and translate it into a custom fashion story. The result - a series of photographs that are intended to speak to how you can love what you wear and where you live and when those two meet they can harmoniously create art. Collectively the story speaks to self love, mystery, confidence and the power of partnership. 

Here is our take on 70's elegance - with an edge.
