Playful, fun and fashion forward, the Dedicate Magazine 'Boys Will Be Boys' is an original shoot for the mag's July 2011 issue. Taking readers back to a time of boisterous and innocent playground mischief, photographer Giulia Noble captures the essence of youth through her exquisite, monochromatic lens (though these are no ordinary schoolchildren).
Models Lauri and Leopold are dressed head to toe in upscaled European elegance, reflecting a time when school was a place to dress to the nines. Naturally, the editorial is entitled 'Boys Will Be Boys' -- an age old adage which reduces the troublesome behaviors of young men to little more than a predictable routine.
Implications - The influence of routine on art and photography is undeniable. Photographers that capture familiar settings through an artful lens appeal to consumer's sense of nostalgia by playing on fond memories of youth and innocence.
