The Pianist, Pedators and Midnight in Paris are just some of the films that actor Adrien Brody has graced with his staring presence. Gavin took Adrien to a warehouse in LA so he could unleash his smouldering talent and capture it in stills for the cover story of L’optimum magazine. Each portrait captures a different character. The suited punk with attitude, the celebrity prisoner mug shot and fight clubs “you talking to me?” Antics!!
Jo styles this cover story which is shot by Dancian and Modelled by Chyrstal Copland, a new rising star who recently featured on the last issue of Italian Vogue.
Shot in London, NY, LA and San Francisco over two months. Gavin had a lot of fun capturing everyones performance, for the GQ comedy portfolio. From Ricky Gervais with an axe through his head to Ken Jeong with his long rubber tongue, he also showed us that he really does have “moves like Jagger”. And not forgetting the girls…. Ana Farris being swept off her feet by a dishevelled gorilla and Olivia Wilde and her exploding cigar. Everyone gave an outstanding performance for the piece that was composed for the iPad cover, its been getting quite a reaction!….click on the images to see the entire portfolio.
Gavin Bond joined forces with OUT magazine to honour and take portraits of one hundred gay, lesbian and transgender people from all walks of life, celebrating 20th century iconic photography. The greatest reward for Gavin was when The Observer noticed his portfolio and ran his images as a Cover story for their magazine!
