Being of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, it would be inaccurate to say Kendall Jenner has been hiding since appearing in Pepsi’s laughably tone-deaf advert. Kendall continues making appearances in high-profile places, like that celebrity cool kids table mirror pic from the Met Gala. But Kendall resumed her modeling career in the latest issue of Sunday Times Style magazine. She appears in the wildlands of California, mixing chic sundresses with rocker studded boots. The photography, thanks to Kendall’s usual prowess, is quite stunning.
What might be more surprising, however, is who was behind the camera.
That would be this guy.
Yes, Cole Sprouse shot Kendall for her latest magazine spread. The shoot came about in a very chill way, as the two were acquaintances who had met “at a couple of parties.” Sprouse’s approach was both casual and the definition of shoot your shot, considering it’s Kendall Jenner and all.
“She knew my work, and we had met at a couple of parties. I just thought, let’s aim for the top,” he told the paper. “Seeing her work, it’s no wonder she’s become such a huge figure within the fashion industry. Without the right model, these photos don’t live. Kendall isn’t afraid to look awkward in a way that’s vulnerable and inherently interesting.”

Sprouse has been in the spotlight thanks to starring in the cult hit Riverdale, where he plays Jughead Jones. Being the photographer perhaps downplayed any attention on Jenner and allowed her to ease back into her typical work output without necessarily addressing the lingering controversy surrounding her.
Sprouse mentioned that he could imagine a time when he’d give up acting for photography in that interview with the Times. He says he’s “more comfortable” behind the camera. Jenner too has recently experimented with photography, shooting a massive spread with multiple covers for Love Magazine earlier this year. Maybe Sprouse and Jenner can switch roles in an upcoming shoot?
Either way, the work is impressive. Who seriously imagined one of the kids from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody would become pensive fashion photographer? And upstage Kendall Jenner—in a warm and probably wanted way? What a time to be alive.
