For the 2012 BM SEX Edition, Tim Ricks introduced us to Javoroce, a 26 years old male model from Los Angeles. Together with Javoroce Tim showed us the art of taking self-portraits and they did it in such a sensual way that apparently it has kept many awake for the past half year and more. Because according to the message we received, Javoroce enjoyed quite some popularity. His masculine Latin looks, dark haired facial features and chiseled body, not to mention his well proportioned manhood, has been the reason that many turned a whiter shade of pale the first time Javoroce graved our digital pages. And we have every reason to believe the same will happen after today.
Javoroce only stands 1,73 mtr/5’8” tall and weights 74kg/140lbs. Not at all that tall for a model, but he more than makes up for that with his Spanish looks. Toned and defined he looks strong and fit and his experience in dance and acting makes him the perfect model for both photography and art classes. Although I find it hard to believe that aspiring painters get anything on their canvas when Javo poses. Tim Ricks doesn’t seem to suffer from that though. He seems to be able to capture Javoroce without problem. More over, his portraits of Javo only add to his already natural masculine exotic look.
We know and have worked with Tim Ricks since 2006 and have come to know his work as sober, sensual and mostly in a color spectrum that only can be defined as a signature style. Using lots of white and yellow light his images always seems to be covered by a filter of paleness that simultaneously make his subject blend in and stand out. Maybe it is the influence of the ever present Californian sun that inspired Tim to shoot his images in this particular style. But whatever it is, it works for us, it certainly works for him and without doubt it works for his many models, Javoroce being one of them. –BM-
