Tukaos x Alexis Cold
The analogue photographer “Alexis Cold”, nickname by which he is known in his social networks, presents his new photographic collection together with Tukaos. Through his analogue equipment, Alexis captures to perfection the sensuality and delicacy of the new male perfume from Tukaos: VICIO.
A perfume, a model and a black & white film.
“My argument is purely aesthetic, I like each person to interpret my creations from their own perspective”.
The young Mallorcan photographer Alexis Cold, is inspired by the nostalgia of a past he has never lived, in anime and Japanese manga, apart from and of course, as he tells us in his BioPic “in the idealization of an eternal summer and young love”.
Following a phone call between Alexis and Tukaos, these lines about the photographic collection that the spontaneous Alexis Cold tells us about in the following.
In November the Tukaos brand offered me the Vicio Eau de Parfum project. They tell me that they like my movement, my essence, what I give off and they put this photographic project in my hands.
They want me to represent the mischievousness, but respecting the elegance.
From there I got in touch with Amy Lily, a loyal friend, who has recently been modelling for LEVI’S, for VOGUE Poland…. I have a lot of confidence in her and she has a very exotic profile, which I thought was perfect for this project.
I set about finding the location; I couldn’t find anything that suited my aesthetic tastes, so what was the solution? Amy’s house had good light, what could be better for a model than to shoot in the comfort of her living room?
We spent a morning working in her house, in a very homemade way but always measuring the light, shooting naturally? My aesthetic routine, come on.
We took photos of her naked. In all the photos she remains naked, holding the perfume, looking at the perfume, posing it on different parts of her body, in short, giving that touch of delicacy to the composition. At most she appears with a black thong, managing to transmit at all times the sensuality, eroticism, lust and elegance that Tukaos VICIO perfume proposes.”.
Art for art’s sake.
