Optology Issue #3

July 7th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

When Jonathan Arundel launched his photography and fashion journal Optology Magazine last year, he quickly established a high standard for the publication’s content and design, with rich, gorgeous stories and a sui generis, pared-down aesthetic. The latest issue, the third, is no different, starting from the charming portrait of a smiling Ben Allen that graces the glowing yellow cover. The features within hew to the quiet vision of the magazine, which bills itself as “dedicated to showcasing the finest photography and styling talent.” The cover story within, shot by Harry Carr with styling by Hannah Elwell, captures a new maturity in the young Allen, while Elliot Vulliod headlines his own story and up-and-comers like Dylan Fosket and Karlis Adlers are featured as well. Thomas Giddings gives us a pensive feature starring Andreas Lindquist with styling by Andreas Kokkino, with a gentle mood that carries over into Fanny Latour-Lambert (Walter Schupfer Management)’s images (styling by Optology’s fashion director Madeleine Østlie), which offer hushed slices of thoughtful youth at play.

INTERMISSION consistently presents its readers with some of the most striking imagery around, enlisting a edgy lineup of boundary pushing photographers, stylists and makeup artists to create stories that resonate long after you’re finished reading the magazine. For fall the issue comes jam packed with art, culture and of course fashion. The four covers and accompanying features run the gamut from elegant takes on the season’s runway essentials, to atmospheric black and whites. Patrik Sehlstedt‘s moody shots of Meghan Collison capture her dark beauty perfectly, while stylist Brian Molloy’s mix of textured outerwear and wintry layers serves as the perfect complement to the rustic setting.










Photographer: Gregory Harris (Management + Artists) | Stylist: Tony Irvine | Hair: Rutger (Streeters New York) | Makeup: Sil Bruinsma (Streeters New York) | Models: Marikka Juhler (cover) & Jacob Morton

Artistry is on display in Gregory Harris’ unique images of Marikka Juhler and Jacob Morton. Utilizing collage and a mix of high contrast black & white shots with vibrant color photos, Harris creates a stylized editorial with an avant garde feel. Sporting face paint and a wardrobe of eclectic jet black styles, Marikka gives her all in dramatic poses.











Photographer: John Scarisbrick | Stylist: Tom Van Dorpe (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) | Hair: Tomihiro Kono | Makeup: Maud Laceppe | Model: Emily DiDonato

John Scarisbrick shoots Emily DiDonato in sporty tees paired expertly with slinky looks from Givenchy, Altuzarra and Sacai by Tom van Dorpe. Showcasing Emily’s larger than life beauty and the innate sensuality found the runways this season, Scarsbrick’s story mixes studio shots with breezy outdoors images to create an appealing take on red hot wintry wear.











Photographer: Richard Burbridge | Stylist: Brian Molloy | Hair: Rutger | Makeup: Lisa Houghton | Model: Ondria Hardin

Richard Burbridge shoots and Ondria Hardin poses – doesn’t get much better than that. Hardin is a natural in front of the camera and seeing her in streamlined looks from Céline and Stella McCartney, just makes sense. Burbridge is never one to simply offer a straightforward story and there is always a twist to be expected when he’s shooting, here he utilizes texture and lighting to great effect creating pictures that reveal the detail behind even the most pared down pieces.






Photographer: Paul Wetherell| Stylist: Brian Molloy | Hair: James Pecis | Makeup: Maki Ryoke | Models:Tilda Lindstam, Stef Van Der Laan & Dylan Fosket

But wait, there is more! Inside the magazine you’ll find plenty more to adore, including this gravity defying hair story. James Pecis creates a otherworldly styles that break from the norm – Medusa-inspired braids, cloud-like curls and a few looks that take the term “sideswept” to its logical endpoint. Tilda, Stef and Dylan shine in Paul Wetherell’s refined images which show the limits of what hair can do!
