Helen Mirren in ‘Annual Icon’ by Maarten de Boer for Flaunt Magazine

Helen Mirren poses as the first Annual Icon for Flaunt Magazine, shot by Maarten de Boer. I start my write-up by declaring my utter fascination with this cunning creature. She is utterly exquisite. Hers is a face that transcends the senses. My eyes travel over the valleys of her skin as I am mesmerized by the truth of her beauty. It’s as if the visual connection I’ve made with her being is allowed to enter my mind space… reaching to meet it’s rightful destination. 

Deirdre Fírinne & Manuela Sanchez by Mario Sorrenti for Document Journal Issue #15

Deirdre Fírinne stares into the eyes of this majestic creature and there you can see their spirits unite. Equal parts beauty and grace so is the Snowy Owl. In one of the most tender captures of the season we see Humanity Expand as we witness this elegant creature out of it’s native land. Perched on her arms, his talons made to tear into the hardest of bark, he sits lightly on her skin as if just to be. 

Lampoon Magazine

Lucas Klinge in ‘the crafted’ a captivating cover that’s artfully composed by Sarai Mari for Lampoon Magazine Issue #19. In the borough of Brooklyn in the state of New York, dancers descend upon the famous amusement haunt called, Coney Island Theme Park. This is a celebration of the strangely seductive. Artfully embraced, each image is alive with pride and power. I feel inspired to just view. 

Paper Magazine

Pete Davidson in ‘Break the Internet‘ by Tommy Dorfman for Paper Magazine. This strange editorial focuses on what Dorfman Refers to as Depressed Ken. Placid and somewhat displaced, the story reads like a mono-syllabic spoof. The landscape of lunacy laid out in human form. Art embraces life and… well you get it. He uses the futile nature of things to both connect and detach. This composition can be a compelling construct, when artfully engaged.

Josefine Lynderup Delivers ‘A Love Letter to Copenhagen’ Greg Kadel for Dansk Magazine Issue #42

THE ARCHITECT OF THE ANCIENTS KNEW WHAT THEY WERE BUILDING. The physicality of this piece is a poetic tribute to the female form. Every curve creates a chasm every straight line a lesson of linear intent. Padding migrates as curves turn to daringly, mangled angles. This fantasy tale takes us to another world, where we merge forces outside the earthly plane. Playful in it’s intention, the artful figure is a revelation of the supernatural. 

Krow Kian by Elizaveta Porodina for Numéro Homme Netherlands 01

Krow Kian shares what it means to be authentic by Elizaveta Porodina for Numéro Netherlands 01. Some may think this not an appropriate venue to focus on Krow Kian’s incredible journey of discovery. Too bad. I see this story as a stop at the center of a brave voyage. This Fearsome Transgender Model shared his triumphant journey, as part of a documentary. ‘Krow’s TRANSformation follows a model’s transition from woman to man.  

Sara Skinner by Elizaveta Porodina for Numéro Netherlands 01

Sara Skinner bites a stick of fire as she christens the ‘Heritage’ premier issue of Numéro Netherlands shot by Elizaveta Porodina. In today’s society we are asked to endure the blasphemous overtones of the bloated masses. A dissension is required. Discord is disheartening, but sometimes it moves the needle. We are there. I won’t indulge the inanity, instead, I choose to be a non-conformists in today’s tenor of non-truth. 

Yasmin Wijnaldum in ‘Hardcore Romance’ by Nick Knight for AnOther Magazine’s A/W 2019

AN ILLUSION WITHOUT BEING SO. This tactile tale reminds us that anything is possible.

Like a beautiful butterfly with blackened wings the fabric spreads and there it sings. This explores the archetypes of the mind. Rich images are alive with an undertone of dark decadence, while a silver sheen envelopes the couture completely.
