Named after a term uncommon to society, Jesse Jacobs' 'The Boy Next Door' captures the reverse role of gender infatuation. With demure shots, clean-cut clothing and a dreamy model, Jacobs focuses on appropriately mastering a heartthrob appeal to a female audience. Capturing infatuation involves model Matthew Logos and stylist Rene Fragoso in a collaborative effort to unmask the face behind young love.
With soft lighting, shaded scenes and effortless hipster style, Jacob re-invents a minimalist setting to each snap of the lens. Stylist Fragoso uses hipster-inspired clothing mixed with preppy polos to offset the idea of the high school sweetheart mindset. The reverse gender role of the editorial leaves readers nostalgic in this modern world.
