“Black and white images strip down the subject down to its main focus. It eliminates distractions, draws attention to specifics and creates a certain aura and ambience. It’s almost like it brings the true soul out of a photograph; something that can’t be captured when colour is added. That is not to say that colour photos don’t contain soul, far from it, but black and white images achieve a different level of character.”
tells Chris Wilson about his newest C-Heads Exclusive. A stunning black and white story full of intensity, female forms and natural light. (Btw – it’s his Birthday today – so let´s pop a cork!) We also had a quick 5 minutes chat with Nicole at MSA Models about her generation, her dreams and her style-icon.
What are your origins?
I’m Spanish, French, and Cherokee
Your generation is all about…
My generation is about equality and acceptance
What do you dream about?
My dreams are always different and abstract. Yesterday I dreamt about doing a yoga class with dogs
What makes you happy? And what makes you sad?
This is going to sound cheesy, but making someone genuinely smile always makes me happy. Seeing people in pain makes me so incredibly sad
Rihanna always slays with her styling
What is your favorite no-makeup beauty tip?
Well groomed brows are always beautiful
What is beauty?
Beauty is confidence. If you feel confident in what you’re wearing and how you express yourself, nothing is more beautiful than that
Best advice you’ve ever received?
Everything in life is a blessing or a lesson
What do you expect from life?
I wouldn’t say I expect anything from life. I expect to do for life and what I expect to do is make a positive impact on life and whoever I meet in it.
