"The Color Issue" of Iconography Magazine


So I’ve been doing a bit more contributing elsewhere and one of the publications I contribute to is Iconography Magazine. For their 9th issue, they chose the theme of “The Color Issue” and in light of the movie “For Colored Girls” I penned an article about four male models entitled “Four Colored Boys.” Basically it consists of short clips on four important male models: David Agbodji at Re:Quest, Corey Baptiste at VNY, Jonathan Marquez at Click, and Zakaria Khiare of Ford Models.

FIXATE: Corey Baptiste

Agency: VNY(NY)
Season: Summer/Spring 2011

I’m not even sure why I decided to add Corey Baptiste into this weeks Model Monday. I mean it wasn’t as if I just had alot of extra time on my hands. On the contrary, I should be driving across town right now. It just so happens that I saw his face in a Giorgio Armani image, more than likely from backstage at the Spring/Summer 2011 shows and picked him out. I then began to mentally recount the campaigns he’s shot for and the runways that he’s walked noting that he is normally the soul face of color. The angles of his face and the smoothness of his skin(oh how I wish my skin were that tight and could bounce light back as his does) no doubt account for this. Plus, he is unusually thin, or atleast seems so. Anyway, all of this lead up to me ransacking the internet to post this spotlight… and now I must literally run away to get things done.
