Our new exclusive is made by João Condesso, a very talented photographer. João is a 30 year old rock n roller kid from the Lisbon suburbs who grew up in a punkrock DIY culture and decided to shoot pretty girls from about 5 years ago. What started as a funny experience, turned out to be his real actual passion and goal in life. To work as fashion and nude/erotic photographer for the great name magazines and all around the world is one of his objectives, but to share more of his inspiration and culture that surrounded him over the years in his work is the biggest one.
From 60’s and 70’s flower power era to cult movies from the same time of authors such as Argento, Fulci and Jesus Franco and others less known of biker and gang flics, from photographers like Richard Avedon, David Bailey and Helmut Newton, João try to show that roughness in my pictures, such as the color and underground essence that those artists made a mark with.
In this exclusive, he has captured the natural emotions and style of Maggie very beautifully. An old Camaro, a pretty girl and a shining sun, do you really need something else ?
