Portrait De L'Homme - menswear summer editorial - forgotten days at the beach

Forgotten days in the sun

With days rushing by, crowded by thoughts, tasks and obligations some things are just meant to fall behind. Not intentionally. Occasionally these things are what nags us all. The book you didn’t get to finish, the meal you never cooked, the friend you long to see, that work-project that would look great at your resume. We all have those. In this case, the photo series that was never edited.

These are the forgotten days in the sun. Shot back in April this editorial has a bit lead time. Not because I wanted it to be that way, but because the wedding, honeymoon and a hectic job all three didn’t allow me much time to spare.

There is something interesting about a clear horizon. There is one point where ocean and sky simply blend into one, leaving it all as unison and smooth backdrop. Minimal, aesthetically pleasing and perplexing. Add in the warm spring sun and it is no longer just mellow surface, it becomes alive with harsh sun reflecting in the sweat on the forehead.

With these words let’s not succumb to moody thoughts whenever we feel that we don’t have the time for the things we deem important. Let’s rather rejoice over the many good things that we do, and things that we do appreciate in our everyday life. And in case that we are in a state where we really don’t have the time for what is valuable to us, let pledge ourselves challenge this state.

Sincerely, Jon.
