The silence of obsessions. The secrets we are so vigilant to hide.

An idea or thought that preoccupies the mind turns to an obsession, and in an 8-page feature for Boys by Girls Issue 7 "Obsessions", Cecilie Harris photographs Max Streetley (D1), Sam Wallis (Storm), Jake Shortall and Jourdan Copeland (AMCK), closing in and revealing their individual obsessions. As the shoot unfolds we learn more about the world of each of the boys, as they let us in on their obsessions one by one. Sam confesses a love of Mcdonalds and clothes, whilst Jake professes the importance of meaningful conversations as he moves quietly through the crevices of The Library Space. 

Cynthia Lawrence-John adds a quintessential style to the series, with pieces from Paul Smith, Karl Lagerfeld and Cavalli amongst many, tapping into a quiet gentlemanly quality and charm within the boys. As we turn to Max, he too shares with us an obsession or two. Fire and cars, a subtle contrast to Jourdan's who we'd leave the print issue to reveal when you have your own copy in hand.

Enjoy a little preview below. To find out more about an array of quirky obsessions, Issue 7 is now available to have and to hold (available in specialist shops or to order via our website).
