PhotogenicsMAG Summer/Pre-Fall Issue No.9 – Another amazing experience putting together this issue. Many thanks to everyone involved, including cover story photographer, David Cortes, as well as Arielle Manesh, Diane Jong, David Shama, and Nicci Arone/Yudo Kurita.
The simplicity, rawness, and spontaneity that comes through in this Swiss-born photographer/documentarian’s work are the qualities that I was immediately drawn to when I met David sometime last year. In a time where so much of fashion photography has become this scary mess of over-styled, overly contrived, way too over conceptualized work, David is a naturalist at heart and believes in the small moments that make up a grand and beautiful scene. The dirt, the sweat, the grime…and the pretty girl with sad eyes and a determined smile – these are the moments David captures on film through his travels and editorial work while at home in Paris and New York. Here are some highlights from his portfolio and a few from his story featured in photogenicsMAG Issue No.5. – M –
Spring is in full swing, and we’re stoked to release the newest edition of photoGENICSmag. Issue No.5 was a really fun one to curate, and everyone involved brought such incredible vibes. Cheers to another rad group of artists and some of the best model babes around. Love <3-M-<3 and the team at Photogenics.
