Paris based street-inspired clothing brand BENIBLA drops its new Spring / Summer ’16 lookbook, photographed by Adlan Mansri in is hometown of Berlin. The Berlin-based franco-algerian photographer Adlan Mansri has already released several editorials and lookbooks, as well as international photo-reportages. True / false diary of the modern youth, its relationship with the body and the time flying… Adlan’s approach is somewhat reminiscent of the ones of Larry Clark & Cobrasnake. Intimate and spontaneous, his work pictures a moving portrait of a whole generation seeking a place to belong.
“We are a pure product of the past generation’s political actions. We don’t have no boarders, we’re torn between our parents’ cultures and the ones of our friends, but also the world that Internet gave us to see. We’re lost since we’re not allowed to create a society reflecting who we are. At the same time though, we feel concerned with our elders’ actions as we – unlike them – are affected by what happens in other continents, one way or another.”
