Arena Homme + : COWBOYS, RANGERS, BULLS Menswear Editorial
Since I work for an American heritage brand, I am always looking for images of "America" to inspire my work (and to use as mood board images...hehe). This editorial in the latest issue of Arena Homme+ titled Cowboys, Rangers, Bulls shot by John Clang is a modern look at American life. Shot against photographs of fast-paced city life, models Russell Giardina, David Hlinka, and Chris Petersen are dressed in relaxed, minimal silhouettes with cowboy hats in a palette of neutrals and muted hues. Fashion editorial it definitely is....but the stark contrast between the relaxed cowboys against the urban backgrounds says so much more about us as a society.
I love the resulting images. Many more below:
