Poetic Moments: A Celebration of Young Masculine Beauty

Poetic Moments: A Celebration of Young Masculine Beauty

Photography by: Toyin Ibidapo, London

The fleeting beauty of youth is captured in this mesmerizing collection of raw, honest portraits of androgynous boys that documents the authenticity of youth, from London-based photographer Toyin Ibidapo. A tribute to the charged emotions of adolescence, Ibidapo’s first solo show There’s No Such Thing as Perfect, But There’s Perfection in the Things We Love, is currently on exhibition at the Doors Showcase Gallery in London.

Ibidapo is a fashion photographer who has collaborated with the late Alexander McQueen, super-stylist Nicola Formichetti and designer Kim Jones, as well as contributing to Dazed & Confused, Arena Homme Plus and SHOWstudio. The exhibition evolved from Ibidapo’s book Cult of Boys, which she describes as a “record of amazing moments and various chapters in my life as a photographer as well as the faces in this book. They represent themselves and they also represent me because it was my vision and they came into my world, some for years, others just once. But sometimes once is all you need, one photograph to remember a poetic moment forever. Seen through the eyes of the female gaze.”
