Our Brief Talk today is with Dimitri Genco. Dimitri is a dancer, model and actor born in France. He studied dance in Switzerland and Germany and he now lives in Berlin. Dimitri is a man of few words, but his modelling photos speak for themselves. We have admired his collaborations with photographers such as Thomas Synnamon and Kevin D. Hoover among others over the last few years and we can’t wait to see a lot more of his work in the near future. Until then, lets find out more about him in the interview below. Enjoy!

Hello Dimitri, could you please tell our readers about yourself?

I grew up in France and started dancing at the age of 5. I was pretty shy and always afraid to speak up, this is why dancing helped me express what I was feeling. Now I dance everyday and its the best reward in my life.

How long have you been modeling, and how did you get started?
I started being a model at the age of 18 and I slowly got into fitness. I’m really comfortable with my body and I love to tell a story through a picture.

I was shot by amazing photographers in New York City such as Thomas Synnamon!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years… I wish I can still be perform and do photo-shoots!

What is your dream job or campaign you would like to work on?
I would love to be on the cover of Mens Health or any fitness magazine.

Time to talk underwear! How often do you buy underwear?

Every week… I think! (He smiles)

What is your favourite style of underwear and why?

I like briefs because they are more comfortable and it suits me better.

Do you have a favourite underwear brand?

Not really, as long as they hold everything in! (He smiles)

In your estimation, what makes a great pair of underwear?

The material and the cut are very important.
