DO YOU KNOW THAT FEELING OF A LAZY SUNDAY AFTERNOON, EARLY SPRING. THE TEMPERATURE IS RISING BUT THERE IS STILL A CHILL IN THE AIR. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO DO BUT TO STAY IN AND RELAX. STAY WARM AND COZY. NOT EVEN HAVING THE NEED TO GET DRESSED FULLY. BECAUSE THE DAY IS YOURS. A DAY TO CHILL OUT AND LET YOUR MIND WANDER.
Eric Anderson is only 24 years old and has consciously decided to pursue a career in modeling. Born and raised on a farm in Iowa. In order to follow his dream he moved to Chicago, but before that he went to college and studied Biology and Environmental Studies. Now, to give as much time and chance to his modeling work, Eric works at the front desk of a local gym where he also spend some quality time working on his body. Pretty much every day.
Doing mixtures of weight training, interval training, steady-state cardio and yoga, Eric Anderson knows what it takes to be in top form and stay there. Its is hard work and therefore Eric has found other activities to find a perfect life balance. He is a passionate guitar player, loves to read (just finished The Hunger Games), watch a movie and hanging out with friends. And every now and then just chilling out at home.
This series of photographs was taken by Chicago based photographer Dave Ouano, whit whom Eric Anderson already worked on 2 other occasions. According to Dave, Eric is a terrific personality, who is at complete ease with his body and sexuality. The kind of guy who can accomplish anything he sets his heart on. For this photo set, Eric and Dave choose a homey background and have given it exactly that lazy afternoon feeling that we all need to have every now and than. In fact, I think I’m gonna slip into that mood right now. –BM-
