ABOUT THE WORK
The boy in this portrait is on the cusp of adulthood, like many of the boys portraited by Casper Kofi. These portraits mark a point in their journey of discovering who they will be as adults. There is often a spirited nature paired with a more introspective manner. In one image, the boys are lively and unselfconscious. In the second, they are ponderous and deep in thought, like Bodhi in this picure.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Self-taught Dutch photographer Casper Kofi (1990, NL) imbues his portraits of young men with a sense of playfulness and longing. He focuses on men as a way of being able to capture an innocence and disconnect that comes from not being constantly under a critical gaze, as woman often are, so being less body conscious. Kofi uses a fashion photography approach in order to understand and express young, male identity and the range of ways this can exhibit itself. When discussing the expanded idea of who is included in fashion shoots, he says ‘there’s a lot of different people who weren’t usually expected to be in work like this, which is powerful.’
Kofi's portfolio is published in Foam Magazine issue #53 Adorned - the fashionable issue.
