Brooklyn-based photographer and director Bon Duke has become a well-known name here at the StyleCaster office. You might even be familiar with some of Bon’s short films and editorials, including fashion films that have debuted exclusively right here on the site, like Jive! Jive! Jive! and Breaking Bread, plus cover stories “Creeper”and “Preppy Pastels”.
And did we mention that he has managed to do all this before reaching the age of 25? Yup, it’s true!
We sat down with Bon after we shot the creative youngster for the upcoming Sebastian Professional & StyleCaster “Infinite Possibilities” cover story back in October. Alongside the 6 lucky winners from the “Infinite Possibilities” challenge we held back this past summer and the 5 other Sebastian Professional Visionaries, the amazing editorial spread was shot by NYC fashion photographer Nicholas Routzen and will be featured right here on StyleCaster later this month.
You’ll also be able to check out the full cover story in the pages of StyleCaster favorite NYLON magazine in their upcoming February issue.
