Here are some of our supporters’ impressions about our books.
Feel free to email us yours ([email protected]) to be anonymously added to these.
It has been a pleasure supporting Killian’s and Pascal’s photographic series and thematic explorations - Light, Heat, Summer Brothers, among others. Pascal’s eye and his capacity to capture light and form places these visual essays in the lexicon of Bruce Weber and Herb Ritts. With Killian as his enchanting muse, these books are evocative essays on masculinity, youth, and beauty.
Each book is an exquisite exploration of the male nude in bucolic settings. Their work is subtle eroticism with a fresh edge. Difficult to choose a favourite, best to have all.

I have bought several of Killian’s books — the most recent, UNCUT, being my favourite. All of them are full of beautiful photographs. The books are excellent quality and the photographs are both clear and well presented. The service provided by Killian is first class. The ordering process is easy and the delivery is quick and reliable. The books are well packaged and discreet. Each book is signed and, if appropriate, numbered. The books are expensive, but you do feel like you are receiving a rare and special item.
Killian and Pascal create the most amazing art photography books. The shading, angles and viewpoints of Pascal portray Killian to the greatest possible aesthetic and artistic advantages. I have purchased all of the books and can honestly say that they are amazing and beautiful works of art. I am looking forward to the next book. Each book is a true wonder and work of art in the very best sense.
Elegant artistry is what I have in each of my books featuring Killian. I own the Room 001, UNCUT, YOUTH, and HEAT books. Each photo shows Killian in beautifully featured locations and there is magic captured through Pascal’s lens. Killian is undoubtedly one of the most handsome men in the world and I look forward to future works of art that I can add to my collection.
Little did I know in 2018 when I bought a slim volume of photos called ROOM 001 Killian, that I would become addicted to the collaborative efforts of this photographer and his model, Killian. Any attempt to choose a favorite from their many books in my collection would be futile. With the recent addition of UNCUT, we can see the full spectrum of their working relationship - from the nearly Caravaggio like images that first caught my attention on Instagram several years ago, to carefree play under vivid blue skies in last year’s release, YOUTH. There is always a new twist to the story they tell, each new volume is like the next chapter in a beautiful adventure. Do not miss out.
Les livres de Killian et Pascal ont en commun de proposer une parfaite harmonie entre les poses — statiques ou dynamiques — de Killian et le décor. La confiance absolue entre le photographe et son modèle est visible et produit un rendu esthétique toujours exceptionnel mettant en valeur à la fois la beauté du corps mais aussi des décors, qu'ils soient naturels ou forgés par l'homme. Dans le même temps, chaque livre a une identité forte et propose son propre univers.Hâte de découvrir votre regard sur la Californie.
These are high quality products. Lovely books with professional photographs of beautiful men at exotic locations. Whether it’s Killian alone or with his friends. For lovers of male erotica!
I’ve purchased every one of Killian’s books. The first book made a statement with the quality of its photography and design. The books, and Killian, get hotter and more beautiful with each edition. For me, there is no finer compendium of male beauty.
“Le barbu musclé” read the title of the post on a random blog. Intrigued, I clicked on the link. So began my fascination with Killian. Years later, I have a growing collection of Killian and Pascal's books. Each one is truly a work of art and in my eyes, a masterpiece.
UNCUT, HEAT, and ROOM 001 are three of my favorites. Some of Pascal's photos of Killian are so stunningly beautiful, it almost hurts to look at them.
Depuis 2016, année de leur première collaboration, Killian et Pascal nous ravissent régulièrement d’un nouveau chapitre de leur Odyssée photographique qui leur a déjà permis de nous projeter dans différentes régions du globe telles que la Thaïlande, la Grèce, Majorque ou le sud-ouest de la France …
Si les deux tomes de SUMMER BROTHERS mettent en scène un Killian entouré d’une horde sympathique de copains de son âge, très vite le modèle sort du lot et entame une carrière solo que Pascal ne cesse de mettre en valeur dans une série de livres plus beaux les uns que les autres : ROOM 001, HEAT, LIGHT, BLISS, YOUTH & UNCUT.
Feuilleter l’un – ou l’ensemble de ces ouvrages – c’est découvrir le travail d’un tandem qui veille au moindre détail pour tenter à chaque « clic » de toucher la perfection. Pascal nous invite à pénétrer dans un monde, ou le jeu entre le blanc, le bleu, l’ocre et le noir apparait comme une ligne directrice devenue désormais signature. À l’image des cartes géographiques de notre enfance, elles évoquent à tour de rôle l’ombre et la lumière, le ciel et l’eau, la pierre et la peau.
Leur prochaine collaboration les mènera en Californie pour un projet ambitieux, le plus important à ce jour, et qui devrait nous réserver encore de belles surprises.
Fan de photo et collectionneur de livres d’art depuis de nombreuses années, c’est avec fierté que s’aligne l’ensemble de leurs ouvrages dans ma bibliothèque, sans parler des magnifiques tirages qui sont venus rejoindre d’autres photographes célèbres de ma collection, certains Bruce Weber ou Herb Ritts, dont les admirateurs sauront observer qu’ils sont parfois des sources d’inspiration pour les prises de vue de Pascal.
En parallèle, Pascal vient de terminer deux nouveaux livres qu’il consacre cette fois-ci à un autre « copain de plage de Killian », je veux parler de Clément, TONES et TONED, deux autres incontournables si vous êtes fan de l’univers de Pascal.
I first started following Killian when I saw his photos in Larrikin Lads in which he had a full length beard which evoked strong timeless masculinity juxtaposed with his rugged hairiness and the soft gentleness of the fineness of the hair on his head and his youth. I bought that book and have since bought Killian and Pascal’s BLISS and HEAT and also look forward to the photos they take in CALIFORNIA. Those will be well placed on my cocktail table here in San Diego alongside BLISS and HEAT. Killian’s body is the ideal male beauty. From the plethora of stunning body hair everywhere, to the perfect roundness of his butt, to the softness of his hair, the beauty of his eyes when he looks into the camera and directly at you, his beautiful face, and the kindness with which he interacts on his MYM page, it is all perfect and you want to be there holding him, taking care of him, and to escape the world into a perfect movie setting and even more, the perfect life. Thank you for being you Killian. Thank you Pascal for capturing the most beautiful man in the world from every artistic and sensual angle. Your talent and dedication to capturing Killian’s beauty is unrivaled.
J’ai découvert Killian il y a quelques années quand il était le plus barbu des coaches sportifs. J’ai découvert alors son travail avec Pascal et ce fut le début de ma collection d’albums photos tous aussi superbes les uns que les autres. Depuis, la barbe a presque disparu, les années s’enchaînent, les muscles s’épaississent, mais Killian reste toujours un si beau modèle, surtout quand il sourit. On fond ! Qu'il soit seul ou entouré d'autres très beaux modèles, on retrouve toujours le travail de son artiste binôme.
Profitons encore des belles photos, mais il sera difficile d’oublier Killian quand il arrêtera de poser pour Pascal !
Quand Pascal, le photographe talentueux, rencontre Killian, Loïc ou Baptiste (et bien d’autres), des garçons aussi gentils que sublimes, cela donne à chaque fois un livre de photos empreintes de sensibilité et baignées de lumière — et Pascal la maîtrise.
Il capture ces instants de vie, ces postures ou ces mises en scène. Il met en valeur leurs corps naturels, sans artifices.
J’ai pu acquérir plusieurs livres, de formats variés, et si je le pouvais, j’aimerais tous les avoir… mais qui sait, un jour !
Merci à vous tous pour cette évasion à chaque fois.
To consider Killian and Pascal’s only physic photography would be to miss the point. The collaboration uses the body to study light, shadow, composition and yes, beauty. I am amazed at how they continue to keep the study of muscle fresh.
I have several of their books in my collection and I can say that I have never regretted a purchase.
Pascal has captured Killian’s gentleness and strength in an amazing series of books over the years.
Whether in the white room or in exotic colourful destinations, this charming young man’s physique is recorded amazingly.
Now, the five books are just amazing! The professional wrapping and padding showed you both really care for the books, which are works of art. I love each of them!
SUMMER OF BROTHERS 1 and 2 are so much fun! Killian and all the other models are beautiful, fit and masculine, in a very natural way. The models in these books have qualities representing quintessential male physiques that are timeless. The photoshoots must have been exciting and fun, and each of the incredible men obviously knew they were working with a world-class photographer, as they appear to do whatever group or individual pose or action Pascal asked of them! Very impressive.
The books featuring only Killian are utterly fantastic! ROOM 001 and UNCUT are both excellent, and LIGHT is superb. I really am at a loss of words to describe how I feel about the perfect images and quality of these three books. I wish I knew of them earlier in to order to purchase the most complete Very Prime Books when they were initially offered. Photographic masterpieces are created with the pairing of you two. Killian, you look amazing from every angle (from far away to extreme closeup), and Pascal, you are able to capture Killian (and his friends) at his (their) best under nearly any lighting condition. And taking the time, effort, and expense to shoot in beautiful locations is certainly worth it!
Wow, I am so enjoying all the books that you sent. First, thanks for the way you sent them; they are in perfect condition. The quality of the books and the photos is amazing. Outstanding. Also, the books are so much more than I anticipated. It such great art. I look forward to the next ones...
David B. (USA)
I am the owner of 8 books published by Killian and Pascal: SUMMER OF BROTHERS, ROOM, HEAT, LIGHT, BLISS, YOUTH, THERE and UNCUT.
As a model, Killian had developed a body which is balanced and fit. His presence in front of the camera suggests he is confident and relaxed. From his social media, one can tell he is dedicated to a lifestyle emphasizing not just fitness, but also fun, relaxation and that he has a nice sense of humor. Not taking himself too seriously, his presence in these books reflects a man who has a good sense of self. The result is that he looks good in front of the camera and at the same time, someone you could imagine meeting for a beer at the end of the day.
As a photographer, Pascal's work shows a great sensitivity to the play of light and shadow and the beauty of the human (male) form. He captures Killian (and the other models) in a way that you feel you are getting an insight into their life at that particular moment - whether having fun, relaxing, or pausing for a quiet moment. One can only feel that Pascal is actually introducing Killian and the others to us. These are not men posing like a mannequin to show their beauty, these are men living and enjoying their life and we are given a bit of insight into who they are.
I look forward to their next publication called "Isles" and what I can imagine are ideas still percolating for collaborations beyond that. Have a great session this June guys!

Killian and Pascal’s latest book is a great invitation to travel and follow them “there”.
The variety of the locations combined with Killian’s evolution of facial hair style allows Pascal to display his mastering of lighting conditions to the full, whilst ensuring a consistency throughout the book.
One highlight of the book is the use of the wild open spaces offered by the various shooting locations with Killian sometimes almost lost in the landscape.
For the fans of Pascal and Killian’s work, there is no doubt that “There” will have one of the top spots in your collection. For people unfamiliar with their work, it is a great opportunity to discover it.
The Very Prime Book is absolutely amazing. The photos are true works of art that capture the fleeting spirits of moments in time. The photography is breathtakingly beautiful and the locations and the moments captured are interesting and fascinating.
Congratulations to you both for creating such an exquisite and incredible book of art photography. You always amaze me with the beauty and quality of your books. Each one is better than its predecessors.
Congratulations on creating something so special and beautiful!
Chao Ye (China)
This book is perfect as usual. The paper and color is so vivid. And Killian’s cowboy attire and looks have that kind of vintage feeling, back to the ’70s. I really like this idea. Most important, this book shows Killian’s perfection once again.
A magnificent frolic in California. Killian enhances the landscape and extends the fantasy that is California. THERE is where you must visit. Yet another delightful book.
I’m absolutely in love with Pascal and Killian‘s work. This is the first time I buy one of their books, and I absolutely love every single one of the photos. To top it off, the packaging was really nice and the Polaroid with the thanks letter were details that made the book even more special. I cannot express how much I love the care and effort that you can see that was put into this book, and for that I’m really glad I decided to buy it. Thank you guys for your hard work, all the love and dedication you guys put into this book!
First — the packaging is a marvellous job, from the warning label FRAGILE to the special foam protection on the edges of the book. Super.
Secondly — in five words, the book itself is a feast for the eyes. I love the black and white photos and the jeans shorts, and among the many highlights, like this photo with a straw between Killian’s teeth, my favourite masterpiece is the photo with a bunch of flowers in Killian’s underwear. In a word, this latest book is a miracle.
I previously bought Killian and Pascal’s Big Books - HEAT and BLISS. This time I bought the Very Big book THERE. It is double the size and thus double the amount of beautiful photos. My only regret is that I did not buy the Very Big books earlier. The photos are beyond outstanding! In their journey through southern California Pascal captures the varied beauty of the terrains of Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, Malibu, and Black’s Beach, and Killian is the focal point of all that beauty.
Whether you want to see Killian in the pool, on the beach, in the desert lost among the Joshua Trees and boulders, or on horseback, you will be able to see it all in THERE and with a fantastic focus on his shiny illustrious masculine hair.
If you are thinking of buying any of Killian and Pascal’s books consider buying the biggest ones as they will surpass your expectations!
It’s a simple fact: Pascal and Killian create beautiful books, each one a work of art. THERE is incredibly well done. The paper, binding and printing are excellent and the scenes of California are so vivid that it almost feels like you're there. Killian, who looks stunning on every page with a ’70s/’80s pornstar look — untrimmed body, longer haircut — is perfection. He looks so comfortable and at ease in every scene, it’s a clear indication of the trust he has in Pascal. THERE is a beautiful book and a great addition to my collection.
2022 restera une année clé de la production artistique du tandem Pascal – Killian avec deux ouvrages shootés en mai dernier en Californie et en France : THERE & THERE POLAROID Edition. Le collectionneur que je suis n’a pas hésité une seconde à acquérir les deux exemplaires, tellement l’un et l’autre sont complémentaires… Alors que THERE continue à nous enchanter dans son jeu des codes couleurs cher à Pascal, THERE POLAROID EDITION nous donne la sensation de revivre les même scènes dans une ambiance vintage plus années 70 & 80. Bravo à tous les deux pour ce travail remarquable … et à bientôt pour un nouvel opus ?
Waiting for a new book by Killian and Pascal is always exciting, but waiting for THERE was this time something very different for me. For the first time I wouldn’t receive a medium book, but a different format. I was waiting for the Very Prime book. The wait is over, the parcel arrived — and I am absolutely overwhelmed by the book. I liked all Medium books a lot, but this format is more than something different.
You get more than many more brilliant photos of a wonderful man, you get somehow little stories told — even without words. With more pages and more photos, settings are used to show changing positions, more close-ups, more details. You can follow Killian, how he is enjoying the various surroundings, how the process of filling the places with his presence is going on.
Seeing the books in Medium format can make you addicted to them, but this book is like entering new dimensions. Many words to praise the new work, one word shouted out loud could be the alternative description: WOW!
THERE – Very Unique Edition is now my new favorite photography book from Killian and Pascal. Like their other books, the high quality and precision in photography and printing is maintained, and just as importantly, Killian remained in top physical form throughout their trip to California and Salagou. Upon repeated viewing, I once again became fascinated with the imagery on each page, similarly as one of my other favorite books, LIGHT. Due to my familiarity with the Polaroid Edition of this current book, and from briefly meeting Killian and Pascal and observing their process first-hand, made each photograph that much more intriguing. All photos were taken with patience to pose and frame Killian the best way possible in each scene, whether indoors, at the pool, or out in the harsh thorny desert. Killian and Pascal are creating masterpieces that will stand above most male photography books from the last 40+ years and their work will surely endure the test of time.
An intriguing theme that evolves throughout the book is Killian’s facial hair. He’s fully bearded or slightly shaven (mutton chops) early in their trip to Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree, which harkens back to the rugged look in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Then they are off to Palm Springs with Killian sporting a fine moustache, recreating the sexy look of the iconic 70’s - 80’s era. And onto Venice and beaches of southern California, with a clean-shaven face and carefree long hair, reminding us of surfers and lifeguards from the 90’s until today. Handsome Killian can pull off any of these looks or styles!
I am fortunate to have purchased one of the Very Unique Books and love seeing the photographs I chose as additions to my book. They were seamlessly integrated with similar photographs, and it took a while to recall which ones were my choices! The abundance of many remarkable photographs besides my choices should assure any fan or viewer that other versions of this book will be excellent choices as well.
I look forward to what Killian and Pascal will work on next. In the meantime, my copy of THERE – Very Unique Book, will be fun to view and share with friends for years to come.
THERE • POLAROID EDITION
There’s something other-worldly about this most recent of collaborations by famed photographer, Pascal Loubet, and his timelessly handsome muse, Killian Belliard. Its construct is purposefully enigmatic and represents a diary of sorts, not of the present, but a more distant past — seemingly something found as if discovered in an old attic, with enough notation and visual play to put it in a time-out-of-mind context. Is it the photo diary of a long lost beau? Or perhaps that of a favorite uncle whose amorous adventures are only discovered after his passing? Or a study, perhaps, of character and cultural history, with physical transformations changing at every new venue.
What is wonderful, to be sure, is Killian’s chameleon-like capacity to alter his appearance and persona. He is 1970’s San Francisco porn star, 1980’s Venice Beach bodybuilder, 1990’s playful poolboy, mythological Narcissus, and primordial man — sometimes, all at once. Working through the lens of Pascal’s eye, Killian’s visage is loved by the camera.
What is most compelling about this new exploration, so different from previous collaborations between photographer and subject, is the implied spontaneity of a Polaroid and the lack of clarity for which this photo type is famous. It adds to the ambiguity of the publication, and is a character itself. The soft edge and bleed of the internal developing agent lends itself to the timelessness of the images captured. This gauze-like state creates a diaphanous haze that alters the viewer's ability to focus, making the visual exploration even more compelling to review time and again.
A much welcome antidote to both the vapid images of interchangeable buff boys staring lovingly at their own reflection that flood our Instagram feeds and the high gloss beefcake of typical coffee table books, There, the Polaroid Edition is sexy, smart, and even sassy. Pascal’s genius as a photographer is his ability to create images that refuse to be pinned-down, and Killian is the perfect model, willing to project whatever the specific composition demands: at times, he is disarmingly vulnerable; at times, he dares you to return his frankly erotic gaze; at times, he transforms himself into a series of shapes, lines, tones, and contours. Beyond providing an occasion for formal experimentation with color, light, and texture, the polaroid format lends the photos a spontaneity and intimacy that is at times disarming. I know of no other photographer who can combine eroticism, humor, and formal beauty the way Pascal does.
And truly, the images are stunning. The one across from the “walking wounded” page, where Killian is lying face down on the bank of the river is so aesthetically beautiful AND sensual AND sexy, and the one across from “et tu, Bruce” is just disarmingly innocent and evocative.
I can't remember when I first came across Killian and Pascal’s work. It might have been on Instagram, but after seeing Killian’s first pictures, I was impressed. Impressed because of Killian's charisma and attractiveness, but also because of the photographic work itself. I have been following their work ever since and after a while, I started spoiling myself with their books.
This new book is definitely the latest piece of art. In contrast to the other ones, it consists of more than beautiful photos. The combination of the square format picking up the format of Polaroid photos, the lack of editing of the photos and the additional texts make this book a very unique and again wonderful work. And this approach, this vintage look works for colour photos as well as black and white ones.
For me, this book is not only a perfect addition to my collection, but it brings out a lot of memories for myself, because my first camera as a child was a Polaroid.
Of course, I am now also eagerly awaiting the regular edition of THERE. In any case, the selection of photos for the Polaroid edition promises a lot again.
The book is beautifully evocative of a 1970's dream man (mine anyway). The Polaroids are like still frames from a vintage Super 8mm film. Douglas and I are enjoying it immensely. The presentation box sleeve is pretty sexy, too. Kudos my friend.
This is a wonderful book and an exciting departure from Killian and Pascal’s high-end, refined (but not overly-edited) previous male-art books that feature exacting (and beautiful) images from a professional digital camera. This Very Prime Book is big indeed. And at first pass, it was a lot to take in, particularly reading the accompanying, amusing anecdotes. Viewing the book featuring these unique polaroids is like looking through a cherished photo-album while a friend or family member reminisces about the fun times shared. And the anecdotes, in Pascal's hand-written font, remind us about their dedicated efforts taken to capture the images with purpose and finesse. The result is a marvelous book conveying a feeling of a shared summer vacation with creative and amazing friends – Killian and Pascal. This book has brought us a bit more into their world, like a friendly hug.
What is truly special about this book and these polaroids is that Killian, our young, handsome, amazingly attractive and outgoing star, has once again shared his time and physique with us fans in a treasured work that will stand the test of time, much better than digital images that will be lost in the shuffle on our phones and social media feeds. Even more special is that master photographer Pascal has partnered himself to work with Killian to capture him via these unique polaroids with the best efforts possible. I was very amused while reading the anecdotes of not only the foibles of visiting and shooting at the locations but also working with rather unpredictable media such as Polaroid film using three different models of Polaroid camera. It all results in a truly special book that the two have created and shared with us.
Even more special is actually owning one (or more) of these amazing, unique Polaroids featured in the book or taken at the same time while they visited California, Salagou and Spain. The Polas I now own are treasured collectibles I will keep for years to come. And owning this book after meeting Killian and Pascal in person (and watching a few hours of their process with digital and Polaroid cameras) is icing on the cake! I certainly hope to meet up again with them one day. But in the meantime, the polaroids and this book will occupy a special place in my collection, apart from, but along-side my other Killian photography books.
Le livre est très beau, avec ses superbes photos, mais aussi très étrange quand on a eu d'autres livres de votre travail entre les mains. «Étrange» est peut être mal choisi... disons qu'un décalage s'opère parce que les Polaroïds rendent quelque chose de plus poétique, nostalgique et peut-être parfois mélancolique (écouter du Max Richter en même temps ne doit pas aider pour la mélancolie). Le titre THERE est parfaitement choisi : nous ne sommes pas ici, mais plus loin, géographiquement, mais aussi dans le passé (« you had to be there »).
On est plongé dans la beauté d'un passé idéal et fantasmé par le mélange du travail fourni en amont, des contraintes liées au format choisi et des accidents inhérents à ce format (les artefacts, l'influence de l'environnement sur ce qui est capté puis développé). Les textes accompagnant les photos sont à la fois drôles (l'auto-dérision de l'aperçu sur les coulisses des shootings) et super enrichissants sur les références. Vos mots nous permettent aussi de nous imaginer là-bas. Un grand bravo, et merci pour le voyage.
This book is beautiful, with superb photos, but also very strange for someone who already has several other books of yours. “Strange” might be a bad choice of words… Let’s say that there is a kind of shift because Polaroids’ rendering has something more poetic, nostalgic and perhaps sometimes melancholic (listening to Max Richter’s music while browsing doesn’t help this melancholy feeling). The title THERE is a perfect choice: we aren’t here, but farther, not only geographically speaking, but also in the past (as in “you had to be there”).
This is a dive into an ideal fantasy past, thanks to the artistic work, the built-in constraints of the chosen format as well as the accidents (artefacts and the environment influencing the image processing). The accompanying texts are both funny (the self-mocking undertone of the backstage stories) and quite enlightening about the references. Well done — and thank you for taking us on your journey.
This might be my favorite in the series so far. While each collaboration between Pascal and Killian has built upon itself there are a couple things that differentiate this book from the rest. The first is the unique nature of the medium that the photos are captured on. With virtually no editing, the natural reflection of the light in each of the frames, the imperfections of shooting with single use film, the changes in contrast from photo to photo provide a visual feast for the eyes in each of the scenes captured.
Secondly, I absolutely loved the commentary from both Killian and Pascal on the behind the scenes involved in this creating this book. It definitely enhanced the experience and gave a good perspective on both what was involved as well as some of the adventures they had while creating the work.10/10 — an excellent book and I am so excited to support future collaborations.
Killian and Pascal's newest book is totally cool. The idea of a retro style book of Polaroid photography sounds great, but the reality of the book these guys made is REALLY GREAT! The photography is interesting and retro chic. I thoroughly enjoyed the vignettes and little stories before each photo. They make the photos come alive and get the viewer engaged in the creation of the photos and the book. The book is totally cool and I highly recommend it. It's a beautiful work of art and a great time travel back to idyllic times and places.
This is a quite unique book, as it is beyond photography: for the first time, we have texts that are comments and explanations to this journey, as well as a sort of summary to next photos. They make us share Pascal and Killian’s fascination with this old kind of photography: Polaroids.
If you are a fan of Killian and Pascal, you shouldn't miss this book.
Ce livre est absolument superbe ! La qualité de la reliure et la qualité d'impression sont simplement impeccables ! L'emballage minutieux du livre pour le transport est irréprochable. Et la beauté des photographies de Killian, en particulier celle de la couverture, est littéralement à couper le souffle ! Sublime !
This book is simply superb! Both printing and binding are impeccable. The meticulous packaging is flawless. And Killian’s photographs, particularly on the cover, are literally breathtaking. Sublime!
This is your best book. I especially like the beginning of the book with your silhouettes, in that strange and empty place. The body close-ups are exquisite. One of many highlights is the picture with your shadow in the water and sneakers by the water. Piece of art. I can say that after you there are no other models. Nobody is good enough for me, because you have everything I like and besides you have your Pygmalion.
My absolutely favorite book is LIGHT. The Spanish light, the pics of you taken in front of the big wall and close to the swimming pool, you’ve never been so handsome in my opinion. All your fans know your outside beauty but from this book pic I feel the photographer took your inside beauty and kindness to another level of masterpiece. You look gorgeous in every pics. In my opinion he did his best work with LIGHT.
Gerhard (South Africa)
Growing up as a boy on an African farm, the thing that you experience the most is the amazing sunrises and sunsets. Light and the play thereof on landscapes, buildings and the human form always fascinated me. And that is why LIGHT is my favorite of all the books of yours that I proudly own. I love all of the books equally but there is something about LIGHT that speaks to my heart as an architect. The straight stark lines of the architecture emphasises the beauty of your body. I think all humans strive to reach that perfect physique but most don’t ever achieve it. You give us mere mortals a glimpse of what beauty and the perfect male form is. Every photo is a celebration of beauty and that is what we need in the world right now. Thanks for sharing your body with us in such a beautiful way.

The LIGHT and HEAT books are my favourite: with Pascal‘s photography, these two books have shown the world Killian are the best.
YOUTH & SUMMER OF BROTHERS
Today I am the proud owner of four of your books. Each is more interesting than the other. I started with the book HEAT and then it just kept going on. I particularly like the brilliant collaboration between photographer and model. The pictures look very natural, they are short moments that the photographer captures. Killian has the mischievous face of a young man and the body of an athlete. Every book is a little treasure. Anyone who is interested in these books will enjoy them.The pictures show summer, sun, carefree moments, really an all-round successful experience. My all-time favorite is and remains YOUTH! The purchase was easy, the delivery was quick, despite the distance Paris – Hamburg.
YOUTH & SUMMER BROTHERS 2.0 sont une combinaison du naturel et de l’esthétisme. On ressent également au fil des pages la complicité entre les modèles et le plaisir communicatif pris par Killian et ses invités. De plus, je salue également le soin et le travail de Pascal & Killian pour le service client ainsi que leur disponibilité.
Le Summer of Brothers 2 est magnifique. Les couleurs, les lumières, les cadrages, les modèles, les poses, les portraits : les photos sont superbes ! Bravo à vous et aux modèles. Sans oublier que le format 30x30 est excellent, de même que la qualité d'impression.
Can one have too many photos of Killian? The answer is clearly no as far as I'm concerned since I just added Bliss to my nearly complete collection. Just like every other Pascal & Killian project, Bliss is a work of art, from the stunning photographs of the (Greek) God-like Killian, the quality of the prints, to the impeccable presentation and packaging. I am already looking forward to the next book!
