SYN Magazine – The Blue Issue
www.thirstforvision.com

This short film was made to promote the ‘Black and Blue’ fashion editorial produced by photographer Mateusz Sitek and published on the Syn Magazine website in December 2012. Sitek was responsible for the production and commissioning the shoot.The central concept of the editorial was an exploration of male identity, looking at the relation between two young men of a similar age, while avoiding restricting the focus to any specific relationship. Rather, identity was left intentionally ambiguous – they could be lovers, they could be friends, they could be brothers…The aim was to capture moments between the two models showing spontaneous feelings of insecurity, affection, resistance or fear; the film captures this tension and intimacy.
