Polish photographer Marcin Krystyniak finally shares a new C-Heads Exclusive series with us. This time he teamed up with Paris muse Stacy C. to take us on an intimate and dreamy journey in an old Parisian apartment.
“We love to take intimate portraits of strangers. And we always appreciate the courage and confidence that our subjects share with their bodies, especially since they’re often people who’ve never posed before. We’re always looking for new faces and through our shots and our projects we want to convey the messages of acceptance for our own and others’ diversity.”
“Last winter, back to when we were in lock down, I felt the urge of traveling as I was craving those carefree summer days spent at the beach. I’ve always been a nature lover – as a kid I grew up in the Tuscany countryside always running barefoot and jumping into rivers’ fresh water. Not being able to spend moments outside due to the pandemic restrictions felt like something deeply unnatural to me.”
Deep in the San Bernadino Valley sets one of the most exciting festivals in Los Angeles. Sets ranged from Rezz to Dillon Francis to K?d. Each stage had some of the best EDM acts in the world as we danced through sunset and deep into the night.
“This song is about love for another person, the kind of love that is strong and painful but also makes you feel alive. One night I packed my bag and went to Dubai. When I arrived and saw all these fantastic skyscrapers I realized that I had to film a music video for my new song here and not in Moscow how I planned it at first – with a proper crew and an actual script.”
I can still remember how I met her. It was a rainy morning. I was in a hurry. My shoelace was untied and annoyedly I bent down to tie it again. The rain dripped from my hair onto my jeans. When I looked up, she was laughing at me. And somehow, all of a sudden, the sun was shining. At least that’s how it seemed to me.
Whenever German photographer Marcel Boer presses the shutter button on his camera, we get to see something beyond magical. It seems so easy for him to capture those casual moments. Sometimes staged, sometimes just incredibly well seen. Enjoy a new series starring model Alicia Herrenreich.
Photographer Slavica Veselinovic and model Alma Durand found a delectable rooftop spot for us. “Alma, a French model, and I spent the summer morning at a hotel with a classic Parisian balcony view, where we created the story “L’hotel particulier”, inspired by the song of Serge Gainsbourg.”
It’s been way too long since we’ve shown you anything from talented photographer Lennart Bader. Together with beauty Milena he created a dreamy and soothing series. The light envelops everything as if in a golden tissue paper. The shadows ripple up the walls. The sound of the sea lulls you into a gentle feeling. Thoughts circle, somehow about everything and nothing at the same time.
Alycia Marie songs are always inspired by emotional themes from her own life. Love, friendship, vulnerability. “My songs are intimate and mostly rather melancholic, which just reflects an important part of my being. They reflect my quiet and vulnerable side” she says.
Maybe to write about happiness is so stock already, that no one will read those lines. But maybe this is the perfect time now to write about something hopeful, something to calm down in the turbulent times we live in. Perhaps now more than ever, at least in the lifetime that I experienced, we are looking for this little sanctuary, a bubble to feel safe, where we wake up with a hearty smile on our lips.
“Find Again is a pop/dance song. I’d consider this the first happy and dreamy song I’ve written which I’ve also sung feeling as such. The title and chorus have been inspired by a post, which had been sent by my boyfriend, that said “it is funny how sometimes you find things again” and was referred to the situation of finding a person again after many years, as if there always has been a connection between them and it seems as if destiny is willing to reunite them back together in the right moment.”
Whenever Digital 21 and Stefan Olsdal work together on a track, something magical happens. We remember for example the incredibly impressive and cinematic track “War”. This time they collaborated with LA based vocalist and eco-activist Inanna for the electro-orchestral piece “Multiverse”.
“I’ve always been inspired by the colors of vintage California photos of the 1960s era. What better way to capture the essence of that time than doing a sailboat photoshoot on film. Morgan Cozzi was the perfect model for this vision because of her timeless beauty and radiant smile.”
For those who just want to get a little sea breeze, we have a beautiful exclusive series today. Starring natural beauty Noemi photographed by Flavie Nanchino. “During my stay in Ibiza this summer I wanted to shoot with models who live there, girls who truly know the island. I asked Noemi to choose the location of the shooting, as we were looking for a deserted beach.
