Ev Dylan Shoots Sedani
The Photographer: Ev Dylan
I discovered the beautiful work of Ev Dylan earlier this year when I was profiling model DW Chase. (see that post HERE:) Ev has worked closely with DW and another favorite model of mine, Mason OSullivan. Their work together is exceptional.
On Ev's website fotoicono, DW says about Ev:
'Being comfortable and trusting a photographer are the most important elements when a model chooses to work with someone. Working with Ev Dylan in some ways is like hanging out with a friend, except the purpose of this time spent together is to collaborate on something artistic. Ev Dylan respects the model he is working with as much as he respects his talent and his time spent on each project. His willingness to allow the model as much artistic collaboration as they need not only makes the model feel more like an partner in the creation but it provides the model with the ability to step up and bring their own ideas to the plate. Full of direction and insight into poses, lighting and wardrobe, you will find Ev Dylan photos in model portfolios all over the world. Often Ev Dylan’s work provides models get starting out a giant shortcut to a more professional and interesting portfolio.'
The respect DW talks about is visibility evident in Ev's work. There is a 'quiet beauty' in all of his shots, my favorites being his exterior shoots. For some reason 'summer' is present in much of Ev's work with his use natural light, dark does not seem an option!
Ev is currently working on a book 'Lust' for release next year. Ev will be shooting shots for 'Lust' over the coming months to add additional work to that he has already selected. Be sure to check out more of Ev Dylan's stunning images at fotoicono HERE:
The Model: Sedani
SD or Sedani as he credits himself on model mayhem has such a beautiful face. When checking out Ev's portfolio the last shot below of Sedani standing in the doorway with the light from the window behind streaming through took my breath away. 21 year old Sedani hails from Texas and says on his MM Page 'I am interested in what this industry has to offer and I'm determined to learn/do what ever is necessary to make it happen.'
With his great face, those eyes and those lips, I am sure we will be seeing much more of SD.
