In bed with Joshua and AJ

DNA Magazine - - PHOTOGRAPHY -

When the In Bed pro­ject for DNA was first pro­posed, Joee knew he wanted Joshua Trusty to be part of it.

“Joshua is the whole pack­age,” says Joee. “Great face, amaz­ing body, tal­ented model, and a charm­ing per­son­al­ity. Ev­ery­thing shines through when he’s in front of the cam­era.”

Joshua, know­ing how close he and the other model were go­ing to get in this shoot, and that be­ing naked in front of a cam­era can make you vul­ner­a­ble, talked his friend AJ Board­raye into join­ing him.

“I wanted to do it with some­one I trusted, not a stranger. It was im­por­tant we had ex­ist­ing chem­istry be­cause, I fig­ured, that would be the dif­fer­ence be­tween the pho­to­graphs be­ing read as porn rather than art.”

AJ also en­joys be­ing in front of the cam­era and re­leas­ing his al­ter ego which, he says, al­lows him to be sexy, cre­ative and care­free.

“Joee al­lowed AJ and me to just vibe and move freely and flu­idly, which cre­ated mood and chem­istry,” says Joshua. “The en­tire shoot seemed or­ganic, which was re­fresh­ing.”

“I wanted to cap­ture two naked man to­gether but not in a gay porno­graphic way,” says Joee. “Even though they are not lovers, I knew Joshua and AJ would have chem­istry be­cause of their friend­ship. As soon as we started shoot­ing their con­nec­tion sparked and I could not stop pho­tograph­ing. I took over 500 im­ages.

The re­sult­ing se­ries of im­ages of Joshua and AJ are among those Joee Vee is most proud of.
