editorialesque » jonathan marquez for gq style china

by Jeremy Danté

with the athleticism of a god, jonathan marquez appears incredibly perfect for the pages of GQ style china. shot for the publication’s summer/spring 2011 issue; marquez appears in this heavenly editorial through the lens of dusan reljin. through sleek, architecturally clean design lines & gladitor style sandals, jon appears stunningly as a superhuman. visually, the desert location combined with jon’s distinct features had my pupils expanding with intrigue; every aspect of this spread from the model to the design of each garment- it’s all that inspires me aesthetically. the styling of the spread pulls you in due to it’s simplicity & the cracked desert ground & clouded blue sky is almost hypnotic in color & in black & white. stunned, i am at how beautifully simple all elements appear to be for this editorial. quite possibly my favorite male editorial this year; jon marquez is also one of my favorites. represented by click models, you might recognize him from his extensive work with the house of givenchy. incredible images, stunning style, progressive & classic while allowing clean & edgy presence to be felt. perfect.
