English Accent

So last year Bk Circus asked me to do some work for them for their coffee table book "Changing of the Guards". I shot a few personalities around Brooklyn and one of them was Adam Rogers.

So I went ahead and did some edits, since I didn't want these photos just sitting there in my archives. Adam has a vintage aesthetic to his nature, from his involvement in design to the seeking out of the old forgotten treasures of men's clothing from the past. Its all reflected in his visual presentation and personal manner and so here is a sample.

Made Men

These cats are smooth ....... Let me introduce them to you. The first is Adeleke and on the right is Rob, the first from Niger and the other straight from the seas of the West Indies. Both men steeped in the upbringing of the Diaspora, transcending and rising above with their dignified style and stature. The calm that they exude never wavers, a testament to the tropic currents that keeps them ... ultimately cool.

I am working on a series of images with them, so you will have to await their revelation with some bated anticipation.
