Sometimes underwear is taken too seriously. Not photographer Leonardo Corredor in his Funbox series. It’s some of the most refreshing underwear photography I’ve seen in a long time: The styling is awesome, stark yet with bursts of brilliant color capturing the playfulness of his models and how they feel in the various styles of underwear. I would imagine his start as a model has given him a unique insight when he finally made the move from in front the front to behind the camera.
Here’s a bit of background from his about section:
Leonardo Corredor was born in Arkansas in 1989 and raised in Merida, Venezuela. At the age of 13 he found much success in an award winning vocal group which took him around the world and afforded him many great experiences. After a successful music career he entered the Mister Venezuela contest and won at only 18 years old. He was a natural behind the camera and quickly became a well-known face on billboards and in fashion magazines. After seeing so much at a young age, he wanted to set his sights higher and set off for the USA. He was quickly signed by the world renowned Wilhelmina agency where he began working as a fashion model immediately in Miami, LA and New York. With his first year in the USA being a great success, he set off for Asia and Europe where he spent one year developing his portfolio as a model and learning the industry inside and out. During his time there, Leo found his passion for photography. He started shooting the local sights and people, honing his skills before venturing into fashion. After returning to the United States he signed with the hispanic network Telemundo to host his own television show but it didn’t take long to realize that TV wasn’t his passion. Since finishing his show, Leo has devoted all his time to photography.
