A Dazed & Confused Nicolas Rippol Strangles Himself

I am captivated by the image of young male model Nicolas Rippol strangling himself with cigarette smoke coming out of his mouth. Is it a statement on smoking being a killer, or a combination of two vices, cigarettes and self-hurting?

The eye-catching image can be found in the upcoming August 2009 issue of Dazed & Confused in an editorial by photographer Karim Sadli.

In the editorial, Nicolas is styled by Robbie Spencer in fittingly dark pieces that add to the edge of the images. Stats for Self-Hurting Editorials Trending: Older & Average
