We celebrate the arrival of spring by slapping a picture of a snowstorm on the cover of Captured Shadows #3. It’s a way of setting the stage for the first three portfolios in the studio’s quarterly physique art publication.
The shirtless cover model braving that snowstorm is Timothy, who had just arrived for a week in New York. Ultimately, Timothy never left and the issue features a series of photos taken of the 23-year-old model during his first year in New York.
The issue also features portfolios on Ricardo and Willi. Ricardo is seen in a photo fantasy series that blurs the line between art and photography and invites the viewer to supply a back story for the pouring rain and flashing lights.
We’ve pulled some previously unpublished work with Willi from our vault. To balance off the late winter snowstorm on the first pages, the fifth portfolio captures the 27-year-old Californian around a shimmering blue pool.
