Constance Jablonski captures the power of ‘Alex Israel‘ by Benny Horne for Numéro #154, June/July 2014. The beauty of body-art erupts as the pastel colored paintings are turned into live art installation. Edgy & alive, this editorial captures the defiant nature of one man’s undeniable ability to lose himself in the process. Stylist, Gillian Wilkins, transforms the nude-body by layering skin with subtle shades of calming color. Each shot offers a unique vision of truth, letting our eyes peruse the palette of passion. Purity sings as (Makeup Artist) Tyron Machhausen captures the strength of survival with beauty that brings hope. While, Mark Hampton, keeps energy alive with hair that flows with freedom/rides with the wind. The scale of satisfaction is met by taking the most extreme form of LA artistry and exposing it to avant-garde poetry. The body as a canvas; Benny Horne uses Alex Israel’s grand inspiration to capture the illusion of invisibility. Artifice exists in an existential space devoid of human emotion or sympathy.
