New York City photographer Kevin Amato has been featured in Out, Complex, The Guardian, Vibe and a host of other big name magazines. He’s photographed celebs, models and public figures galore, which means he knows a thing or two when it comes to scouting talent. For his assignment for Dazed Digital, an online magazine with a focus on arts and culture, he picked an 18-year-old Bensonhurst local as his model du jour.
Matthew Logos invited Amato into his home to meet his girlfriend, family and get a taste of his “confident attitude.”
Amato was clearly impressed, writing, “His look and personality is killin’ it!” of his meeting with the aspiring male model.
Logos added some of his own content by adding some information about himself.
“I had a pretty rough year – got keyed in the nose by a random guy, got a broken nose and seven stitches. Been through hell but I bounced back and now I’m on top! I am currently a model at the agency Request and never wanna stop doing what I’m doing,” he said.
Nice to see young talent thriving in the neighborhood. Next time we see Logos, he may just be in the pages of a glossy mag.
