|《歐美寫真報導雜誌》ELSKA MAGAZINE Issue #07──CARDIFF WALES
Issue (07) is dedicated to Cardiff, capital of Wales and one of the four national capitals of the UK.
A cosmopolitan but often overlooked British city,
our journey to Cardiff showed us that there is a unique culture here
and that Wales is not just another England. Here it 's rugby (not football),
red dragons (not red lions), daffodils (not roses), Welshcakes (not scones),
and chip shops (not chicken shops)!
The sixteen men featured inside were photographed around the city and in their homes.
Some were shot clothed, some nude - it was their choice, but the style
was always spontaneous, un-airbrushed and all their own. As usual,
each boy 's pictorial spread is accompanied by a self-penned story.
The Cardiff issue includes three written in Welsh and even one
in Catalan (written by a local university student shot in town).
It 's our biggest edition so far, and it 's actually Elska 's most diverse yet
in terms of body size (there 's skinny boys, muscle guys, and requisite rugby lads);
and also in terms of age (the guys who chose to participate in the Cardiff
edition ranged from 19 to 75). Croeso i Gymru!
