THERE WAS A TIME, REALLY NOT THAT LONG AGO, WHEN COUNTRIES LOOKED AT EACH OTHER WITH SUSPICION AND AGGRESSION. FRANCE AND ENGLAND HAD A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP FOR CENTURIES. BUT THAT ALL HAS COME TO AN END AND THE PEOPLE FROM EACH COUNTRY HAVE COME TO ACCEPT AND LOVE EACH OTHER. MANY BRITS HAVE FOUND A SECOND HOME IN FRANCE AND VICE VERSA. AND WITH THE COMPLETION OF THE EUROTUNNEL IN 1994 THIS TRAFFIC BETWEEN THE TWO RIVALING COUNTRIES ONLY INCREASED AND BROUGHT THEM CLOSER TOGETHER.
Only a few centuries ago it took ages for people to connect with each other. Travel was done by carriage or by foot, and written correspondence carried on horseback. Since then a lot has changed and these days we step into a plane as easy as we once climbed a cart and mail horses haven been replaced by email and social networks. And so it has come to happen that people from all over the world can meet each other in a split second. It makes the world a smaller place and building relationships much easier and more exciting.
Issac Jones met his boyfriend through the Internet. At that time Issac lived in the French Loire Valley, approximately 500 kilometers away from the man he fell in love with. That didn’t stop him though and 2 years ago he packed his bags, hopped on the train and traveled to the United Kingdom to start a new life with his partner in Ashford, Kent. And from Ashford, Issac is now connecting with the rest of the world. Through his work and his website.
There are many porn actors and it seems like everyday another one is joining this fast growing segment. But not everyone has the possibility to call themselves a porn star. Issac Jones does. Secretly willing to try porn for a long time already, but not being sure he had what it takes, it was actually Issac’s boyfriend who encouraged the handsome Frenchman to give it a shot. He did and he shot in the right direction. Straight to the top. Only being active in gay adult entertainment for a relatively short period of time, Issac Jones is already recognized as the kind of guy who’s got what it takes to make it big. No pun intended. Issac Jones is hot. Issac Jones is a star. But Issac Jones is also just a regular guy, who lives with his lover in a small town in England.
Mircius Aecrim lives, workes and goes to school in Bucharest. He started photography only 5 years ago after being exposed to the now famous Dieux du Stade calendars. He boldly bought a camera, started experimenting, went to the New York Institute of Photography and embarked on a study at the National Art school in Bucharest. For his school he shot his Naked Men at Home project. And since Mircius doesn’t do half work, he carefully selected his men. The first one was Scott Hunter, whom we interviewed not too long ago, and the second was Issac Jones. Mircius Aecrim traveled to Ashford and shot Issac in his most private environment. His home. The result: a stunning set of portaits of a man who has shot to the top of the gay adult industry like a comet. Though perfectly staged, the photographs look like snapshots, showing a side of Issac that you hardly ever see. Vulnerable, intimate, sensitive. A Frenchman living in the UK, now connected to the rest of the world through his career, and these beautiful portraits by Mircius Aecrim. –BM-
