Frank Ocean paid a visit to Terry Richardson‘s studio this month to pose for a set of photos because, it would seem, that is what one does as a young up-and-coming artist lookin’ for a little bit of buzz. It turns out that Ocean was previously photographed by Richardson back in May but because of the stir he is making on the music scene with his debut album channel ORANGE, those photos are finding new life. Click below to see the set of black and white photos that were taken this month and a set of color photos that were snapped back in May.
You will note that Frank is not wearing his signature headband, which I think is a good thing. I find him much more attractive sans headband, don’t you?
Of these two sets of photos, I think I prefer the color photos better but honestly, Frank looks great in all of them. I’m a new Frank Ocean fan so it’s always nice to see new sides of a new artist. I’m very much looking forward to seeing him perform live here in LA. I can’t wait to see if his onstage persona holds as much personality as these photos do ;)
