LATELY WE SEEM TO BE DISCOVERING AS MANY NEW PHOTOGRAPHERS AS THE NASA FINDS INHABITABLE PLANETS IN OUR GALAXY. EVERY DAY A NEW ONE IS KNOCKING ON OUR VIRTUAL DOOR. NEEDLESS TO SAY, WE ARE MOST EXCITED ABOUT THIS AND ALMOST GIGGLING OF PLEASURE WHEN WE RECEIVE FRESH MATERIAL. WE DO HOWEVER ALSO WONDER HOW IT COMES THAT SOME OF THESE NEW TALENTS NEVER CAUGHT OUR EYE BEFORE. IN PAUL HENRY SERRES’ CASE, THE ANSWER IS CLEAR.
There is no doubt in our mind we have seen Paul Henry Serres’ work before. His concepts are original, his settings perfect and his choice in models impeccable. So one wonders why we never heard about him. The answer to that question is quite simple. Paul Henry doesn’t like to boost. He isn’t the kind of guy to speak a lot about himself but rather let’s his work speak for him.
Asking Paul Henry Serres about himself he says he is just a passionate photographer who loves his job and is in constant pursuit to produce good work. That pretty much sums it all up. But there is more to him than just that. Paul Henry Serres works in all disciplines of the art. He does architecture, landscapes, nature and even sports photography. In fact, he used to shoot for a rugby team in Quebec and states that shooting athletes in action is the best school to learn how to use a digital camera. Paul Henry’s biggest passion is probably photographing people. "Each shoot is for me and the model (as they tell me) a rewarding human experience," he explains. "There is always fun involved. It doesn’t matter is the model is male or female, young or old. The most important thing is to have mutual trust and fun in what we do."
One of these models Paul Henry Serres is referring to is Jordan. You might have the feeling you have seen him before and let me tell you, if you do, you are right. Jordan is a regular for Homme DeLuxe photographer Fabien and has been featured on BeautifulMag and in BeautifulVision in some of his portraits before. 34-Years old Jordan and Paul Henry have a lot in common. Both men come from Montreal, both are very creative and both prefer not to talk to much. But where Paul Henry lets his photographs speak, Jordan says he has very different ways to communicate than merely talking. That quote combined with his dark sexy look makes us shiver all over. Jordan is a well sought after model. Despite the fact he resides in Canada, he has worked, and still is working, with a great number of international and Paris based artists. We already mentioned Homme DeLuxe, but you might also know Jordan from his collaborations with Exterface and Pierre & Gilles. Not the smallest when it comes to erotic and creative male art. The things he prefers? Communicating with the desert (dressed and undressed) and being in Los Angeles, because it gives him the feeling to be nobody in the middle of nowhere…. An intriguing man this Jordan. –BM-
