Young London based photographers Imran Ciesay and Solomon Boyede, aka Ciesay and Soulz, who launched their careers on Tumblr, are releasing a print magazine entitled Places + Faces
The duo rose in popularity through their candid images of well-known music artists, including the likes of Kanye West, Drake and A$AP Rocky and will feature visual captures from various events and intimate backstage moments.
Their spontaneous photoshoots document what they have described as a representation of the 2010’s modern day era. The tone of the magazine embodies their natural, sincere and intimate style, capturing iconic moments taken from the first-hand view of Ciesay and Soulz.
In a recent Dazed interview Ciesay described the motive for the release of print magazine is to demonstrate modern day lifestyle and culture. “For me, I want a kid or someone to collect copies of Places+Faces so in ten or twenty years they can show their kids. ‘This is what was happening in the 2010s.”
The magazine is now available on their website.
