IN THE CIRCUS OF SINNERS NAMED MONROE-LAND, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. LEAD BY THE HAND BY CREATOR JUSTIN MONROE YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED TO MEET THE UNEXPECTED AND SEE THE IMPOSSIBLE. NOTHING IS UNHEARD OF, NOTHING IS TABOO. IN THAT WICKED WORLD OF SURPRISES, NOTHING SHOULD SURPRISE YOU. BECAUSE YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU ENTER MONROE-LAND, YOU EMBARK ON A JOURNEY BEYOND REALITY.
Whether it is in real life or movies such as Rambo and Terminator, Americans have always had a strong love affair with fire arms. Photographer Justin Monroe is no exception. In this series that he calls Master Blaster starring the incredible Trevor Adams, Justin pulls the trigger of our imagination, revealing how power, danger and chaos excites us. What is it about guns that is so fascinating? Is it the adrenaline rush, the loud bang or the unwelding power they posses?
Trevor Adams grew up in Spring, Texas, just north of Houston. Texas is by nature the state associated with gun power. Growing up Trevor was not completely alien to guns as his mother worked as a police officer. This probably also taught him the danger they possess and how careful you need to be with them. Trevor started modeling when he was 20 years old and has mastered the skill within the tiniest detail. Hence the fact that he plays the Master Blaster role as if it was his natural self. But nothing could be further from that image. Tall, big and impressive as Trevor Adams is, he seems to be fully loaded, but he is also a man of great sensitivity with as biggest dream to one day start his own animal charity.
Justin Monroe incites the cross hairs of sex and violence and the potential power they poses with these hot Master Blaster images that he shot exclusive for BeautifulMag. Master Blaster is a bad-ass mother-fucker who would just as soon kill you as look at you. With his fully loaded piece, Trevor Adams shows off every inch of his strong masculine physic as well as reinforcing the notion that his powerful weapon is one to be reckoned with. Master Blaster is bad to the bone…and what a lovely bone that is. Oh and by the way, all weapons in this shoot are fake. Well, all but one that its. –BM-
BeautifulMag #107 Week 09-10 | The Age of Innocence
I remember while growing up the TV series and entertainment shows we watched. Looking back and comparing to what we are exposed to today it all seemed a bit naïve and innocent. Looking at the past few years, TV series such as The Shield, Dexter, Oz, Criminal Minds and Deadwood come to mind as our main source of entertainment. TV series that show it all. Blood, violence, sex, and foul talk. Nothing is sacred anymore, nothing hidden. It’s all there out in the open. And we, as innocent TV audience, take it in like it is the most normal thing in the world.
In fact, it is the most normal thing in the world. We are living in a time in which all is accessible. A decade ago one would carefully hide dead bodies and scenes of violence in the evening news, using polite words to describe massacres. Today our TV screens and our computer monitors are windows on the reality of what is happening just outside the protective walls from our homes. TV shows and news broadcastings have blurred into each other in an ongoing stream of cruelty and aggression, making reality TV less real every day. Is this wrong? No, not really. The world we are living in is a world of conflict and disorder. It is nothing new really. It has always been like this. The only thing that did change is that our media brings it closer to us. So what about our children? Should we not protect them from all this brutality? No, maybe not. Because what is the point in hiding them from the turbulence we call life. What we should do is educate them. Teach them right from wrong. Make them aware of the dangers that are lurking around the corners. Make them understand that the age of innocence is long gone. Only then we can hope to see a change. Only then we can start to look at violence being the solution with no end it really is. But until then we need to be realistic and accept that aggression is a part of our life and our experience world. There is only one reason why we should expose ourselves to the tools of violence. To get better and wiser. –BM-
