A few months ago, we found ridiculously cheap plane tickets for Boston and off we went. It was our first visit to the city and, believe it or not, Stockholm in February was more pleasant than Boston in March. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that we arrived completely unprepared. That I, in my converse and thin jacket, did not end up with pneumonia is honestly not even fair.

Instead, call it the ultimate playground of all casting calls, starting from the outside, where Phil Oh lensed the grand entrances of the insouciant-cool models-off-duty en masse, while photographer Sofia Malamute created editorial-worthy portraits of several of the stunners on the sidewalks.
Inside, models were greeted by Instagram’s cheeky darling Elliot Tebele of Fuck Jerry, who enlisted fresh faces to re-create his favorite memes. As for those paper “comp cards”—or rather, the model form of ID? The photographs received an elevated, digital touch and were transformed into GIFs to bring their personalities to life.
