Well, what a year 2020 was. CLIENT was supposed to release its 10th Anniversary issue and celebrate a decade in print as an independent magazine. Covid put a stop to that. So many have suffered, so many have died and the struggle continues. But life does go on and we have to be prepared to embrace every challenge that comes our way. We have to work together, support each other, and try to be a bit kinder. When you can, support independent businesses, artists, creatives and check in on people who you think may be vulnerable. The best way to deal with your struggles is to help others with theirs, and we promise the good karma will return to you, in abundance. Give it a try.
“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”
– Karl Marx
So here we are in 2021, and the year is not off to a great start, but we must stay positive and move forward. Don’t look back. We’re excited to share with you our newest edition – CLIENT Magazine #21. On the cover we see handsome Julian Schneyder at Sight Management photographed by Sergi Pons at Lighthouse Agency with styling by Miguel Padial. Full production credits below. In the short film ‘Runway’ above we see the beautiful Milena at Balistarz directed by Anastasiia Ivinskaya on location in stunning Bali – see below for full production credits.
The edition comes in hardcover and digital editions and will be released on 27th January 2021, with pre-order available now from the links below. As you can see from our exclusive preview, expect a busy issue with an eclectic mix of fashion photography, photographic essays plus interviews with British artist Stuart Semple and the Creative Director of exclusive concept store Darial in Spain – Djaba Diassamidze.
We showcase some of the iconic portraits of legendary photographers Ted Williams, Kevin Cummins, Baron Wolman, Terry O’Neill and Lawrence Fried from the BLOW UP Exhibition organised by Iconic Images in London. In contrast to that, Ragnar Axelsson, a Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2020 Finalist is an Icelandic photographer whose b/w photo-essay titled Arctic Heroes totally captivated us. He considers the Greenlandic sled dogs to be among the greatest heroes ever known in the northern reaches and his photo-essay is a homage to both the dogs and to the Arctic way of life, which is threatened with extinction by the effects of global warming.
In a more hospitable location, I present a black and white photo-essay from an early morning tour of Berlin, discovering the diverse structures and silhouettes within this leafy metropolis. Whilst in New York, young actor Connor Russell took a quick break from filming Season 7 of the series YOUNGER alongside the incredible Debi Mazar to feature in an editorial for CLIENT photographed by M. Cooper, with art direction by Dfernando Zaremba.
Lastly, we share a preview of a unique photo-exhibition featuring the work of legendary photographer Paul Joyce, in A Life Behind The Lens at The Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre featuring portraits of David Hockney, Sophie Loren, and Quentin Tarintino. Stay safe, enjoy, and support where you can.
