through the lens of richard pier petit, this set of images was shot with eclectic styling & showcase even greater lengths of versatility from jhanelle castillo. represented by click models, jhanelle has intentions to further conquering the world of modeling by going from commercial modeling to high end editorial. as displayed in these images, there is almost a deconstruction of commercialized beauty- in the poses that are shot, in the facial expressions. many may not know that there are two worlds within the realm of modeling; commercial versus high end. in these two markets, very few are able to successfully go from commercial to high end & more specifically; two successful cases for female crossover are joan smalls & alessandra ambrosio. whether shooting catalogs or campaigns creates a further distinction between these two drastically different sectors of modeling. with more projects in the works, i’ve always loved jhanelle’s look & am hopeful that his transition to the next level will be one of fruitful results. seen here outfitted in vivienne westwood man, gucci, prada & margiela- jhanelle demonstrates the power of his own abilities. clean yet rugged, with polished & handsome ability. check for jhanelle in 2011.
