Fresh face Raphael stars in this rugged portrait series by photographer Frederic Monceau. The fresh faced M Managaement model stars in a set of black-and-white portraits that embody a modern version of the traditional blue collar aesthetic.
Raphael is clad in a masculine wardrobe of distressed denim pairings, oversized suit staples and plaid-printed overall garments that are a nod to 90s menswear looks.
The model poses beach-side and on the sand while channeling a contemporary version of a young sailor. Photographer Frederic Monceau's intimate image series captures newcomer Raphael who showcases a wide range of emotions. Though a rookie, the model showcases his raw talent in front of the camera and proves he is a newcomer that can rival seasoned professionals.
