GQ Spain's From the Inside Out Story is Gritty and Raw

Arthur Gosse plays a homeless model role in GQ Spain's 'From the Inside Out' editorial. The model dons dramatically layered looks in the shoot and poses while covered in dirt and dust.

Whether laying on concrete, loitering on street corners or carrying an abundance of plastic bags, the homeless model takes cues from gritty city life when getting into character.

Reminiscent of Zoolander's Derelict concept, this fashion editorial explores life of the less fortunate. Photographer Sergi Pons captures the story and lenses gritty and candid images that make one think of poverty rather than high fashion.

Styling for the controversial shoot is courtesy of Jesus Cicero who dresses Arthur Gosse in pieces from Burberry Prorsum, Marni and Kenzo. This editorial provides a social commentary on the high price of fashion. The story suggests that many will sacrifice food and shelter for the sake of style, a theme that is all too real among today's consumerism-driven culture.
