No one should compromise.
Compromise makes people dull.
Always creative, inspiring and with a high end quality in both writing and photography, Jefferson Hack and his team has managed to keep it up for 10 years now.
For this anniversary issue of AnOther Magazine, David Sims stood behind the camera when they decided to shoot four young actresses out of the international new wave: Léa Seydoux, Andrea Riesborough, Jennifer Lawrence and Mia Wasikowska got one colourful cover each.
The inside of the magazine is, as usual, filled with fashion, art and culture. Photographer Anders Edström has made an absolutely beautiful and sublime series with the Japanese supermodel Ai Tominaga simply seated on a bench in a park in the outskirts of Tokyo. Paolo Roversi teamed up with stylist Olivier Rizzo to shoot an amazingly delicate underwear story with five wonderful girls.
Nick Knight’s shoot for the issue is crammed with fluid dresses from designers like Lanvin, Haider Ackerman and Jill Sander. The two dancing models and the collage technique makes it the most dynamic fashion shoot we’ve seen for very long.
Inside the issue you will also find a story on the British photo collage artist John Stezaker (who’s having an exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in London until the 18th of march) as well as an exclusive publishing of Shaun Considine’s The Oscars Letters from 1963 – a correspondence with some of the time’s most well known actresses and actors. There is a big story on Riccardo Tisci and Givenchy by Susannah Frankel and an A to Z art project curated by Francesca Gavin.
One this is for sure – it’s certainly not dull.
