Venetia Scott

There are few rocks within fashion’s 21st century elite that glory in unrefinement, maintaining their outsider reputations, nursing connections to the anti-establishment and to rebellion of the sort that isn’t manufactured by a roundtable of designers and editors with agendas to push and dollar bills to collect. Venetia Scott is one of these gems, a true rarity of near mythical status.

Sam Clafin

To say Sam Claflin’s star is rising seems woefully inadequate; rocketing would be a more appropriate term. Certainly there’s been nothing steady about the British actor’s career path to date. Just months out of LAMDA he was notching up the parts in prestigious TV shows, chasing this up with scene-stealing roles in Hollywood blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Snow White and the Huntsman. Claflin, 29, isn’t someone who’s about to rely on a megawatt smile and ‘nice guy’ reputation to keep stoking his career, however, if you’ve seen his turn in The Riot Club, you’ll know he’s not afraid to do nasty.

Jock Sturges

Sturges’ ability to capture unstudied, un-posed, natural gestures is remarkable. His photography conveys a quiet warmth and beauty, creating moments of true peace. He prides himself on the bonds of trust, friendship and collaboration between the photographer and model. The admiration and respect he shows for his subjects shines loudly through his works.

"we wanted to combine this idea with the idea of a tree hotel, which meant that the idea of the mirror cube works on these two levels. On one hand it blends completely into nature, reflecting everything that is around it.. a bit like a camouflage effect so it from certain viewpoints or in certain light actually disappears very well.

Dustin Lance Black

"Coming out to my mom was very frightening. My mom loved everybody, but she grew up in the South, she was military, and had been Mormon, so she didn’t think being gay was right. I think she thought that if you were gay or lesbian your life must be pretty miserable. So, you know, coming out to her was tough.

Daniel Radcliffe

You know how this script tends to go; precocious child becomes child performer becomes child star. Child star becomes phenomenally famous and indecently wealthy. Child star’s childhood is more about press junkets than the playground. Child star experiences belated adolescence and goes off the rails in epically messy, tabloid fuelling style: cue smirk-smeared mug shots, ‘WTF?’ relationship choices and a quickstep in and out of rehab.

Cory Michael Smith

I had 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.

Lucas Fogliar

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. - Wayne Northcross

"Equality should be simple. In a realm of equality everyone is granted the same rights and judged only for their actions. Differences should be celebrated, not dwelled upon. Not understanding where a person is “coming from” should never be an excuse to disrespect or discriminate. If someone challenges my understanding of a what a person can be, I am grateful for the opportunity to expand my understanding.
