It’s about rebellion, passion, lust and immaturity. Those few years of our lives where ignorance and inimitability are bigger trends than what animal prints could ever be.
Proudly flagging the tag line of ‘youth’, Fiasco magazine explores this stage of life in its 15th issue with portrait photographer Nicolas Guerin.
Just as the lack of discipline is supplanted with enormous fervour, everything you’d expect from an unruly young adult is featured in this editorial. Tattooed arms, skateboards, undone shoelaces, raging music equipment, messy hair, and effortless wardrobe… the list is endless.
It’s only in our twenties when we recognise the feeling of wanting something, the desire to be someone. Whether it’s shameless young love or an electric guitar, everything else becomes a blur and the innate fire swells up. Every frame of this photo shoot is an epitome of that flame. The juvenile thirst to be concealed in the background and hide from the world is the mood created by stylist Marz Atashi.
When the youth is disregarded for being irresponsible, they respond with a flipping bird. The girl has every right to sexually desire a man, as much as her entitlement to test the grounds with another girl.
No boundaries and no apologies, such is the courage of youth, one that always takes chances with no regrets. But when it comes to sparking a debate or starting a brave fad, they’re frontbenchers.
