Obsession No#12… Allen Lovell
Allen Lovell is the latest model to become immortalised on the wooden slabs of the Obsession Series by photographer Daniel Jaems.
Obsession No.12 is the first nude from the series.
“Anyone that knows my work will understand that i’m obsessed with skin so eventually I knew I would shoot a nude for this series, it was inevitable. This being my first nude, I was naturally nervous, it requires a huge sense of responsibility in building trust with my models. Lovell is a fantastic model, in many ways he was the one who made ME feel comfortable on this shoot. A learning experience for us both. I wanted to convey Lovell’s masculinity, vulnerability and natural beauty. The Obsession shoots are an intense exploration of male beauty. The extra step of removing the distraction of clothing was a wonderful additional element to the series and the result is in this set of images” – Daniel Jaems
