Bound / Herring + Herring
New photographer duo (well, to me at least) Herring + Herring ended up in my inbox the other day, and I was quite taken aback. Not only because they were different from most of the “designer collection” emails I usually get (please stop sending your collections, I don’t care for clothes and won’t post them), but because their sadistic approach for Bound was a refreshing...

Hedi Slimane Interview
Before moving ahead, read the interview. Rarely do I believe that articles need a “response”, but solely based on the fact that this is Hedi Slimane’s first interview in almost three years, it seems an opportune decision. Hedi Slimane has somehow mastered the art of control by letting things happen in his wake. It seems almost ridiculous to repeat that he’s invented the...
Continuing with my series of film photographers who are frontrunners of the film revival, I introduce to you Ana Kras from Belgrade, Serbia. Other frontrunners of the film revival include Sophie Curtis, Hana Pesut, Kristie Muller, and Ian Markell. Check out Ana Kras’s blog and site. “I was always fascinated when I watched old war movies where the girls get married by proxy over the...
Abbey Lee Kershaw + B.E.R.L.I.N.
I almost tried completely ignoring this editorial. That didn’t work. Then I tried calling up Abbey Lee for a night on the town. Didn’t work either. Her agency wouldn’t give me her phone number. I mean, since when do agencies not give out private information? This is probably why I spent my Valentine’s day alone… Ronald Dick shoots her for the new issue of Pop.
Mode Models + Mitch Baker
While us Canadians don’t have too much of a claim to fame besides our lush wilderness and overabundance of clean air, it’s nice to see that we can also supply human beauty from time to time. Mode Models is one of those eyes on the prowl for the next set of cheekbones or puppy-worthy pout. Home to some of the best in the industry like Heather Marks, Simon Nessman, Meghan Collison,...
Frida Gustavsson + Vogue Deutsch
Gushing over Gustavsson once more as she poses in an everything-in-one editorial for Vogue Deutsch shot by Greg Kadel. Seriously, these could all be separate editorials. I think they’re trying to bring out her diversity. The next Karlie Kloss, maybe? I’m still shocked by those shoes. In the wake of McQueen’s death I only think value has been added to anything he has created. Sad,...
A collective of three amazing photographers presents itself in the form of Out Here Over There, a place where their similar styles and aesthetics come together to take some of the best I’ve seen on film. Film is coming back, just to warn everybody out there. Buy back those film cameras you sold to make way for the digital age. Nostalgia always wins. Today, we feature Sophie Curtis. Click...
Cher Vous, s’il vous plaît excuser mon mauvais français. Oui, je sais que la plupart de vous ne peut rien comprendre. Mais quand même, j’ai quelque chose d’important à vous dire. Alors, vous pouvez savoir que à ce moment je vis à Vancouver, Canada. La bonne nouvelle, ce dont peut être très important pour vous de savoir, c’est que je déménagerai à la belle ville de Paris....
Naleye Junior Interview
I’ve had an eye on Naleye Junior every since photographer Anouk Morgan shot his stunning mug for the We Own The Night issue of Ilovefake. I haven’t seen anybody come close to looking like Naleye Junior, or having as peculiar a name [his real name is Naleye Dolmans]. The only thing I can tell you is that this kid likes to have a good time, but is as humble as it gets. All photos /...
Boy Meets Girl
Jeffrey Cohen captures Simon Nessman and Gillian Staples for Contributing Editor’s Boy Meets Girl. Did you catch Simon in Bruce Weber’s Ain’t Nothin’ Like the Real Thing? I don’t know much about Gillian Staples, but I do know that Arthur Sales managed to sail his way into 200 pages of L’Officiel Hommes. Okay, enough news. It’s been awhile since I’ve...
The Love Thing + Love Magazine
Featuring quite the bounty of models, Love’s video The Love Thing made specifically for some holiday we’re celebrating. It’s the Olympics here. Let’s enjoy a minute of love around the world to celebrate Valentine’s! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Long Live McQueen!
In the wake of Lee McQueen’s death, I thought it appropriate for those who did not know the man, and for those who did, to take a retrospective look at how he changed fashion. While many may appreciate his eloquent and other-worldy designs, I wanted to showcase another side of McQueen that I think equally impacted the fashion industry. His shows were always unparalleled in the facet of...
Dreams in White / Lily Cole + Sølve Sundsbo
Even with the recent news of Lee McQueen’s suicide, the show must go on. Here is something you might not have seen. A shoot from the archives with amazing Lily Cole in 2005, the doll-like Brit teamed up with Sølve Sundsbo to create, what I believe to be, a timeless editorial. I mean, five years later I think this is still considered futuristic. Also happened upon this rare interview with the...
Lee Alexander McQueen Found Dead
Abbey Lee Kershaw + Richard Prince
The relaunch of Pop is causing quite the stir lately, especially with this video featuring the Queen of the Collar Bone, Australian Abbey Lee Kershaw. Remember her way back when? Not only is this the first motion segment Pop has ever produced, it’s… it’s the first motion segment Pop has ever produced. The images below are from Muse #20. I can’t wait to lay my eyes on some more...
Continuing my obsession with the Dutch, I introduce you to Richard Bakker, who shot the editorial of Minke Boot for See Like Me’s Rare Issue, and who is a very talented photographer. I’m going to start work on a Rare Issue rework that will be significantly less pages and therefore significantly cheaper to buy. Details to come. For now, let’s melt while staring at the stunning...
I don’t know if it would be insulting to call Yuri Pleskun the “white thug” of modeling, but with every turn of my head I see him, so whatever he’s doing it’s working for him. This kid breaks the boundaries of every male model convention that was set out (for example, his love of fried chicken) but manages to take advantage of the fact that he’s of a different...
