New Exclusive Editorial by Felipe Pilotto with Rodrigo Conte
We have seen the beautiful work of photographer Felipe Pilotto along the years in Fashionably Male, this time, he comes back once again.
“Rodrigo Conte is a professional actor and model, born and raised in Brazil. The freckles on his face, matching with his hazel eyes, increase his charm. Rodrigo has a theater background and along his path he has done a few soap operas, but a curious fact is that actually the sports came before everything in his life.
Sports has always been his passion; in Rodrigo’s words: “Sports are a matter of letting out your demons; uplifting you and those around you.”
Rodrigo is a black belt in brazilian jiu-jitsu, and as a sports motivator, it doesn’t stop there, he does surf and running, both sports that provide the contact with the nature also elucidated by him, allowing his spirit to be fed by the force of mother nature.
The photographer Felipe Pilotto did this unique photo shooting for Fashionably Male, developing the concept of the contemporary tough man, doing an analogy between the strong side and his fragile side, stripping himself from everything that he carries along the way.
“He is a fashion model, actor and fighter from Brazil. One of the thing that I like the most about Fashionably Male is the possibility of having a text background on the shooting, because this way we can create a whole new perspective of everything and it helps develop an unique atmosphere to the viewers.”
The work of Felipe Pilotto has been posted on Fashionably Male during all this years, since 2014, and we’re so glad to present this stunning work once again, enjoy.
