Photographer Ricardo Muniz lands a winning series of shots with model James Magee (BMG: NYC) in a spread Muniz titles "The Eagle Has Landed." James, a member of the Unkechaug Nation, lives on a reservation in Connecticut and is also known by his native name "Flying Eagle". There's plenty more after the jump.
Back from knee injuries & surgery, photographer - and body artist - Ricardo Muniz is editing once again and took the time to send this new editorial titled "Carlito: un chico del caserio" (Carlito: a boy from the projects). The two shot the series prior to Ricardon's injuries and from what I hear, Carlos has since packed on even more muscle. Perhaps we'll get to see. MAS CARLITO AQUI (and well wishes to Ricardo for a speedy recovery).
Ricardo Muñiz, one of our favorite NY photographers, reached out to designers of Puerto Rican heritage in order to create this fashion editorial and to share his "Boricua" pride with EthanSays readers.
There is a tiny island in the Caribbean Sea that is so densely populated that it actually has the highest number of people per square foot in the whole western hemisphere. Four million call this island paradise home. Over the years, another 2.5 million have made their homes in the continental United States. This island paradise is named Puerto Rico. New York City, with its own population of over one million Puerto Ricans, is the unofficial capital of Puerto Rican culture--twice as many Puerto Ricans live in NYC than in the island's capital of San Juan.
The designs of Colombian NY Fashion Week staple Edwing D’Angelo transform fashion from the ordinary to the extraordinary in this fashion editorial for Ethan Says by photographer Ricardo Muñiz (Coquíchulo Images). Edwing’s attention to detail and love of fine fabrics and clean lines and bold-but-subdued colors is perfectly exemplified on Israeli model, Zion Cohen, American softball player, Chris M., and mixed-race personal trainer, Kent Edwards.
“Rencor y Amor,” properly lends credence to the magic that is Edwing D’Angelo’s Love Eclipse line for men. To see how the editorial unfolds, and for a message from the photographer himself, turn the page.
Puerto Rican art photographer and puppeteer Ricardo Muñiz' work is focused on cultural recognition and pride: he dedicates himself to photographing and promoting models, designers, stylists and artists of color.For his Ethan Says premiere, Barrio Beach, Ricardo received international support from some of our favorite companies.Barrio Beach features the rugged apparel of Boiish in New York, the provocative swimwear of Vizeau from France, the trendsetting designs of French accessories company, Beryll, and from Australia, the ever-favorite, Aussiebum.
New York has many famed beaches, but for many in the inner city, a sandy shore is not the only place to strut your stuff. For this editorial, models Kent Edwards (African American, white and Native American), Deilín Sanz (Dominican), Santiago Peralta (Argentine), Giovanni Perez (Colombian), Was Palacios (Dominican) and Michael Herrick (mixed race, courtesy of Empire Model Management) demonstrate their hotness against the cold, hard bricks, mortar and concrete of New York that Ricardo fondly calls, Barrio Beach.
