Sebastian Faena presents real life mother and son Lynn Koester and Paolo Anchisi in a fascinating story for VMan. The bond between mother and son is one of the strongest and most complex dynamics, but seeing it conveyed in a fashion editorial is a rare thing, especially when the story is less than straightforward. Faena’s pictures are vivid, but they leave a great deal to the imagination of the viewer – is this story more Sons & Lovers or is it veering into Ma Mere territory? Only Faena knows for sure. Regardless of the subtext, Lynn and Paolo both know how to captivate in front of the camera and their striking resemblance makes for memorable shots. Be sure to see the full story when VMan drops September 9th.
