Cinematic and suffused with emotion – GIANT ARTISTS presents Lucas Garrido with his film and emotionally inspired portfolio on GoSee

The agency from Los Angeles presents us an exciting new entry on GoSee : “Lucas Garrido’s photographs are at once intimate and universal. He gets inside of a moment, harnessing what things feel like rather than simply documenting what they are. And he does it with a light touch. Lucas’ images have style but are not stylized. They’re considered but feel entirely natural. His work is clearly beautiful, but you never feel like he has placed beauty above everything else. This is why he can move so fluidly among shooting campaigns for brands such as Nike, Gillette, and Coca-Cola.

His brain is a cavernous vault of references, a deep mine of new ideas and different approaches,” one creative director notes who has worked with Lucas. “The best thing you can do when you work with him is to talk to him about what you’re trying to achieve; then get out of his way. He knows what you need. He knows how to get it. He’s also literally the nicest person you’re ever likely to meet.”

Lucas, who was born in Spain and is now based in both Barcelona and New York City, also avidly pursues personal series. They’re executed in stills and motion alike, and they often seem like vignettes from someone’s dream. In “St. Germain”, one of his most recent collections, a nude man leans casually against his car, regarding another man who stands facing him, his body in flames. “Sometimes you just need to listen to yourself and be open to shoot the ideas that grow in your mind,” Lucas observes, “independently of what everyone else may think of it.”

Megan Thee Stallion, female rapper, singer and songwriter, in the cover spread of Marie Claire US, staged with feminine flair by Micaiah Carter c/o GIANT ARTISTS

Micaiah Carter c/o GIANT ARTISTS photographed female musician Megan Thee Stallion for MARIE CLAIRE US who has just released her new album ‘Suga’.

Megan Thee Stallion is Marie Claire's May cover star. In the issue, she talks about her latest project, Suga, that’s been a long time coming after a nasty legal battle with her first record label. Despite its success, the rapper explains why she doesn’t want you to call Suga an album. “That’s big pressure. That’s like a husband,” Meg tells Marie Claire. “Projects are like, ‘We’re dating, we’re getting to know each other, we're getting comfortable.’” Meg released the project after she won a battle against her first record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment. During an Instagram Live broadcast, Meg told her ‘Hotties’ (a.k.a her fanbase) that execs from the label were trying to legally stop her from releasing new material. #FREETHEESTALLION started trending online, and Meg finally got her day in court where a Texas judge ruled in her favor and granted Megan the right to release Suga.
