shot by lope navo, this creative interpretation of a sweet sixteen birthday party appears for fiasco magazine‘s sex issue. i love the low saturation of the warm tones as well as the elements of birthday cake & candles with birthday boquets. navo has been showcasing a bit more of creativity through illustration on his images as of late, an element which surely sets him apart from others in the field. other quirky childlike elements like lollipops, giraffe hats, hello kitty marshmallow lollipops & cupcakes add that adolescent feel to the spread against a grey studio backdrop. represented by ford models, aj began modeling after becoming a semi-finalist for VMAN’s ford modeling contest & has since had much success appear for campaigns with calvin klein, frankie morello & levi’s. he is joined for this spread by agency mate, blake kneisley & whilemina models taylor fuchs & kara searle.
