Keywords: Joe Brotherton, Models 1, UK
Place of Origin:
100% Yorkshire English.
Scouted for use by Vidal Sassoon in Leeds, and they suggested to get in touch with Models 1.
Film cameras, the sound the camera makes when shutting, brown paper packaging tied up with string, and the combination of white on white.
Favorite music, band:
Hard as always changing, but at the moment I keep listening to The xx, and Alt-J a lot.
Favorite movie, tv show:
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
Well I study Fine Art at Manchester School of Art, so I think I would be pursuing this either way.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Well lately I keep listening to Kelly Clarkson, which is embarrassing (what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger) but also I love tying my hair in a bun. Looks awful but is satisfying at the same time.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
The shoot with Mark Kean for Varon magazine was quite interesting as was my first on location shoot, But the serial nature of working with David Sims, was also a high.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Well I’m from a small village near Leeds, so I guess the countryside, as we are surrounded by fields and an overlook of a viaduct. It is beautiful.
Favorite artist (any kind):
At the moment I’m looking at artists Daniel Firman and Daniel Arsham and taking inspiration from them.
Place you would love to visit:
I’d love to go to New York, Milan and Paris (again). I’ve always wanted to go to New York but can never afford it, and I think Milan will be beautiful! Paris I have been to on a school trip, but would like to experience on my own.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Black clothing and Doc Martens.
