The captures of model Paolo Anchisi by Eli Schmidt take viewers on a steamy venture into the dirty power of fashion.

With a fierce glare and laid back posturing, Anchisi encompasses a bad boy in control. The model's sheen of Southern United States sweat in combination with the eccentric clothing suggests some sort of illegal rendezvous. Loudly patterned Hawaiian shirts and a slew of contemporary-textured jackets bring about the dirty business vibe.

Schmidt, graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, brings his intellectual use of lighting and advanced sense of color technique to the editorial. The artist makes use of warmth and props such as neon lighting. The Georgian roots shine through in this heated editorial.

The photographs of Paolo Anchisi by Eli Schmidt are bold and sexy.
