florian neuville

floflo 6 floflo 5c floflo 7 floflo 4b floflo 9b floflo 2 floflo 8b floflo 1b floflo 10 floflo 3b once in a blue moon, a model boy with an oh-so we-could-grow-up-2gether personality would come along. no bullshit. no douchiness. no gross dirty fingernails. just a whole lot of wide-eyed curiosity & appreciation on quirky little beauteous things. this time, it’s a belgian boy named florian neuville; he's with NEW YORK MODELS. the juxtaposition of his interests amazes me. while he’s into skiing & reading heroic fantasy novels (those jack vance, isaac asimov, & h. p. lovecraft stuff) & riding horses (his favorite horsey is bounty, with 3 black & 1 white feet), he's also very into TWEETS & TUMBLR & INSTAGRAM. you should have seen how many hastags he can fit into one photo & each tag would have a particular function. then he would share his passions on handwritten things like letters from his grandpa & sending postcards to dear friends & writing his own fantasy novel with a pen & a notebook. perhaps growing up in brussels + paris helps. or is it just the traits of being an aquarious? this kid who studied sociology, geography, & history fits exactly into the characterization of all the boys in my shoots - a charming young prince in a magical land far far away who is put under a spell of an evil witch that sends him to the modern day new york city to work chores as a male model; yet the endearing quality & bewitching charisma doesn’t fade a single bit …
