Conceptually and formally urban and rural spaces speak in distinct and familiar visual codes and styles. Betwixt and between what one would consider a proper rustic scene, such as an expanse of valley, snow-peaked mountain ranges, or a cluster of cattle, there exist border towns, metaphorical spaces, where a factory looks quite at home on the prairie or the effects of industrial drilling can appear to be acts of beautification. In these real and metaphorical locales, in this clash of cultures Lucas Foglia presents vivid scenes of an American West that is experiencing social, physical and interpretative transformations. Foglia’s series Frontcountry in particular reveals structures, networks, and communities that share and occupy intersectional spaces in which dislocation, industrialization, migration, land use, and shifting cultural identities change expectations and notions of town and country.

featuring Cory Michael Smith  text John David West

Ihad the pleasure to meet with Columbus, Ohio native Cory Michael Smith at The Norwood Club on 14th Street in New York City, “a home for the curious” according to its online vision statement.  That could mean so many different things, but for me, “curiosity” centered on this young, up-and-coming actor who seems to be on the fast track to fame. With the same nerdy manic energy of Edward Nygma, his character he plays on Fox’s Gotham, he rushed in wearing a gray jacket, a buttoned-up striped shirt, and matching gray slacks short enough to show that he wasn’t wearing socks with his brown dress shoes. 

As he sat down, he apologized for being overdressed and explained that he was going to a business meeting with a couple of buddies who were presenting an app that they had created. While he had nothing to do with the app, he was going to support his friends, as they’re shy and he’s —well, he’s an actor. An actor, who, in just the past couple years, has worked with some of film’s big names including Frances McDormand, Cate Blanchett, and Rooney Mara. 

It was easy to fall into a conversation with this chill guy, who like me is from the Midwest, shares a love of theater, and studied both acting and music. This actor’s actor is enjoying a career with divergent roles that range from the “good intentioned,” comic book character turned murderer in Gotham to playing the tortured, suicidal Kevin in last year’s Emmy nominated miniseries Olive Kitteridge.

Sarah Paulson

Naturalist Project

photos Nino Muñoz  style Johnny Wujek  featuring Sarah Paulson  text Alec Holland 

This issue deals with Naturalism, and Sarah Paulson is a natural. As part of the ensemble of the wickedly glorious anthology series American Horror Story, she manages to insert a sense of realism into characters that are made up of anything but. Paulson grew up in New York City, and went to the famed High School of Music & Performing Arts. Just four months after graduating, she found work in plays like Horton Foote’s Talking Pictures, and Wendy Wasserstein’s Broadway hit The Sisters Rosensweig. Paulson moved to LA and started taking on TV, in shows like American Gothic, Jack & Jill (where our paths first crossed) and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Since then, she’s been back on Broadway in The Glass Menagerie, and turned in notable performances in films like Martha Marcy May Marlene and 12 Years a Slave. But it’s her deliciously varied roles on American Horror Story that’s got the world going gaga. Even, it would seem, Gaga.
