Saut by Cesar Love Alexandre

"Ace Aroff photographed by photography duo Cesar Love Alexandre and styled by ROFF with pieces from Givenchy, Helmut Lang, Raf Simons x Adidas, Raf Simons, Kim Shui, Yohji Yamamoto, Yeezy Season 4, Comme des Garçons Homme Plus, Balenciaga, Maison Margiela and vintage pieces provided by Dominik Halas & Lui Valdez, in an exclusive for Fucking Young! Online.

“We decided to make our model jump throughout the whole shoot in order to express this unleashed, and totally free positions, as a strong opposition to the way fashion is conveyed through traditional ‘poses’, to see fashion and clothes in a new way. We wanted to explore the antagonism between documentary and fashion through this story. We decided to follow the documentary aspect by shooting these jumps in the Hasidic Jewish neighbourhood in Brooklyn in order to create once again an obvious and extremely big gap between the New York fashion culture and the communautarism of the Jewish community, which is expressed so strongly in the geography of the landscape and in the way people dress.”

Cesar Love Alexandre were inspired by the typological jumps of Robert Longo and the way he studied the human body in uncommon, accidental positions, which in the end makes the subject adopt very instinctive and natural movements.

“We also wanted to emphasize the unleashed human body, by photographing it in front of such a culturally ‘ruled’ environment, where the people live in a strictly regulated community. This man is jumping and seems out of any consideration of time or space. By simply jumping, he becomes the most human out of us all, he strips himself out of any social or cultural boundaries, and becomes abstract, surrealist, and he becomes a painting. He is different by his movements, but also by his clothes. In every frame he is dressed differently, which is also an opposition to the uniformity of the community.”" -
