All About Yves, Your Tatted New #MCM


“My social media is not really for me. It’s a voice for people who lost theirs.”

There’s a lot you might not know about NY-based model, dancer, and all-around cutie pie Yves (@the_yvesdropper) just from following him on Instagram. That’s why this intimate new visual portrait, shot by photographer and director Harry Eelman (@harryeelman), is everything.

Check out the video for more on how Yves uses his social media as a voice for others, how he expresses pain through dance, and a bunch of other stuff you’d never know just from seeing him in your feed.
