See Inside: Let’s Panic Issue 2

July 20th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Straddling the margins between art and fashion, Issue 2 of Let’s Panic Magazine is trickling into stands in the U.S.A. now and Europe to follow.  The large format, in-your-face magazine, the project of photographer Greg Kadel, is a collection of inspired editorials, hued from the bold and experimental to the indulgent to the introspective. The thoughtful list of creators and contributors is worthy of praise – Boo George, Mario Sorrenti, Jeff Bark, Jennifer Starr, Judy Blame and Mark Lebon to name a few. On that note, Editor in Chief, Aaron Ward writes, “Of all the steps taken in the creation of an issue of Let’s Panic, the one we most enjoy is the exploratory stage, the part where meetings and conversations introduce us to new people, novel ideas and undiscovered creative twists.”

Inside the magazine, Greg Kadel photographs Jac Jagaciak for a vivid, varicolored beauty story. Shot through water that shifts the light, beauty team Fulvia Farolfi and Nicolas Jurnjack  produce gorgeous tides of blues, rouges and yellows. Editor-slash-photographer Aaron Ward abstractly shoots a model pressed against a pane of glass, to the effect of leaves pressed in a book.  Other editorials breathe life into archival images, like the cover image from Mario Sorrenti’s black-and-white, road trip portraits or casting director Jennifer Starr’s multitude of polaroids.

Manhattan Transfers

January 27th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

The nonchalance and grit of late 70s Manhattan takes center stage in new editorials from Parisienne staples Vogue Paris and Numéro. In Lachlan Bailey (Management + Artists)’s striking VP story, Vanessa Moody is a chic beauty with a shag haircut and a wardrobe of 70s staples, from ribbed turtlenecks to navel grazing necklaces. Géraldine Saglio (Management + Artists) pulls out all the stops creating an authentically retro wardrobe for Moody. Little details like rotary phones in Vanessa’s apartment, classic cars and the backdrop of Harlem brownstones make the viewing experience especially pleasurable.

In Numero Greg Kadel captures vintage Manhattan in beautiful black & white with Ronja Furrer looking like she stepped out of a classic film. Havana Laffitte provides the era appropriate wardrobe, but mixes in a few modern elements like a metallic jacket for added interest.
