Have you seen the photo spread in Models.com of the Asian male supermodels?
According to the site, “the rise of Asian supermodels ranks among the most important things to happen within the modeling industry’s past decade.”
Among those named in this category are Sung Jin Park, Phillip Huang, JaeYoo and Daisuke Ueda.
The photo spread was done by Idris and Tony.
“Although there has recently been a greater visibility of Asians in Western advertising, we are still mostly typecast as the sidekick,” said Tony. “When will we be the leading man, the object of desire? So we approached the project from a Western perspective photographing Asian male models in various denim pieces because you can’t get much more American than t-shirts and jeans.”
