  • The Cage
    The CagePerformed by the model and performance artist Alex Bruni, "The Cage" is allegory of the ageing and social stereotypes attributed to it. The performance rebels against age biases, replacing them with passion, strength and beauty. Alex starts dancing with a heavy burden of clothes that limits her body and imprisons her mind. As she persists, the layers fall apart, until she is free. Credits: Photography Zuzu Valla / @zuzu.valla Model Alex Bruni / @alexb244 Grey Model Agency / @greymodelagency Ha
  • Unfollow the leaders
    Unfollow the leadersEditorial for Pap Magszine When punk was spat out onto the scene in the 70s, the world was ready to be shocked by one of most impetus and disruptive subcultures, sometimes described as the first unisex youth movement. Punk was about attitude, ideas; by definition, it was both derisive and fluid.

  • Ascension Towards Greater Love
    Ascension Towards Greater LoveWe are exploring the construct of a futuristic love and affection that’s non physical. More so an envisioned state of mind that is never ending unless the protagonist intends it to. The concept of love we are exploring is a mind game, it knows no gender or physical attraction - it just is love in its purest form. It is the dream and the perception of a feeling before it’s poisoned by reality. https://www.pap-magazine.com/ascension-towards-greater-love
