Cecilie Harris shot the inspiring Mateus Lages (Request) in this exclusive Boys By Girls editorial 'Never Follow', named suitably after one of Mateus' tattoos which features in the series of images along with some of Mateus' own super cool artwork.

Cecilie immediately knew that she needed to shoot Mateus as he instantly lit up the room with his chilled and positive character; she could definitely tell he would be a creative and fun model to work with. He is one of those models who makes the shoot super fun and every pose is a little different. He seems to move in his own unique style, simply 'as Mateus', giving Cecilie endless creative options to work with. It's also refreshing to see a model who can give a smile or two during the shoot.

Stylist Kita Updike brought in pieces from Coleman Elliot and Shoegasm.
