Judging from Matthew Lyn's latest photography sets, including this 'Shadow Cast' editorial for Essential Homme magazine, this talented photographer really likes his models posing in darkness among shadows.

Lyn has created an editorial that centers on mystery, with models Jeremy Young and Jesse Shannon posing in an eerie and dimly lit studio setting. The aptly titled 'Shadow Cast' editorial features intriguing plays on light, often displaying only bits and parts of the models' faces and apparel. The parts you do see, however, are stunning, as they showcase the haute menswear pieces from the Germany-based BOSS label. Styled by Terry Lu, the editorial features casual and polished pieces, including a rich velvet blazer, laid-back denim shirts and a luxe chocolate-hued leather jacket.
