FACE OFF

We’re super into photographer Piczo’s work and his latest, featured on i-D online, are of 10 fresh faced models, up close and personal, shot at Piczo’s home.

He also did a mini interview about what he looks for in a model and how to make them open up in from of the lens:

So Piczo, what do you look for in a new face?
I like the models who are androgynous and imperfect. I especially like the models who have one unique point: strong eyebrows, round nose, big ears, big lips.

How do you make people feel comfortable in front of the camera?
I normally shoot at home one to one. And I keep letting them move and pose until they do natural small gestures and expressions. Actually I think to make friends is really important for the shot, so I want it to be like visiting a friend at their house and chatting and chilling.

How do you define beauty?
New faces are in one of the most beautiful and bright times of their lives. Adolescence, hope and anxiety for the future as a model and as a human. I think this immaturity is beautiful. And I love small gestures and expressions; people assume gestures involuntarily when they speak, like scratching, pulling skin, yawning… so I always watch and observe.
