The Polas (Feat. Airam) by Seigar

The idea of this series was to recreate what we call in Spanish the polas, this term comes from the word polaroids, because these photos used to be taken with those types of cameras. The polas are simple portraits with natural light and without makeup or noticeable retouches that agencies use to show the most realistic and updated look of a model. Airam is young and talented, he told me during the photo session that he is interested in acting and modeling. He inspired me to do this shooting to simulate what his polas (simple snapshots) would look like.
