BOUND WITH PHOTOGRAPHER STEVEN HARWICK

Steven Harwick has been taking photographs since he was a child, and with an affinity for fetish in his teenage years, he found a powerful form to express his identity by marrying these interests. Well studied on Americana and queer fetishism, with a BFA in Photography from Pratt Institute, Harwick combines all his knowledge in order to create photography, video, installation, sculpture and collage. Printed matter is a touchstone of his creative career, beginning with a self-published zine “Bound Leather”, which brings a new perspective to the Physique Pictorial inspired images, boasting fifteen issues. The zine features models not seen...

TOTALLY FLOORED WITH JOAKIM ANDREASSON

TOTALLY FLOORED WITH JOAKIM ANDREASSON

Joakim Andreassson is the man behind the machine— he is the founder of CULTUREEDIT and has spearheaded all Tom of Finland’s licensing for the past 7 years. In addition, he curates exhibitions across disciplines, highlighting the best of counterculture fashion, art, and lifestyle. Seriously, this guy is prolific and connected to just about every queer icon on your radar. Those cool art/fashion collaborations you're seeing everywhere, Andreasson probably put them together, including ones with JW Anderson, Diesel and Honey Fucking Dijon. In 2012, he created HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS, a program of artist designed rugs with Swedish rug publisher Henzel Studio...

"CRUISING" with Hiro Clark

"CRUISING" with Hiro Clark

If you were part of the fashion-art-politics-commerce movement of the early 2000s, you probably know who Andy Salzer is. He founded and operated cult fashion brand Yoko Devereaux in (perhaps the last) frenetic New York moment, adored by the media and worn by of-the-moment celebrities like Pharrell, Josh Harnett and the Scissor Sisters. After “killing” Yoko Devereaux in 2009, Salzer moved to Los Angeles where he ultimately launched Hiro Clark, a men’s t-shirt line that uses classic form as a vehicle to communicate tongue in cheek statements. Entrenched in the duality of Los Angeles, Hiro Clark makes the “it” t-shirt...

JAKE KALE OF COBRA LILY FLORAL DESIGN

With the world in a state of disarray, everybody needs more gorgeous flowers in their life. That’s why Jake Kale, founder of Cobra Lily floral studio has taken up plant material as a way to express himself (and joy).

MIKKO RASILA ON GOING BEYOND THE CONSTRUCTS OF MASCULINITY

MIKKO RASILA ON GOING BEYOND THE CONSTRUCTS OF MASCULINITY

Inspired to follow his vision at a young age, Rasila has expressed himself through many mediums, but photography is the one that stuck. Having traveled the world for his commercial work for almost two decades, Rasila has covered everything from fashion, to photojournalism, to still photography for the Tom of Finland biopic.

CONSTELLATIONS By Tyler Matthew Oyer

CONSTELLATIONS By Tyler Matthew Oyer

Tyler Matthew Oyer is one of those people who is prolific, not just in one space, but in many. With roots in theatrics, Oyer does everything from producing full length music albums, to conjuring dead queer artists as performance. His CV reads like a novel filled with impressive turns; the most recent creative endeavor is portraiture, which he started shooting informally in 2019. CONSTELLATIONS, his first photo exhibition can still be seen online at Culture Edit, where prints are also available. The show documents a modern cast of one-of-a-kind individuals (stars), which forms a greater community of bohemians (constellations). Having spent...

ALL ABOUT "THE GIRLS" - INTERVIEW WITH K.NGSLEY

ALL ABOUT "THE GIRLS" - INTERVIEW WITH K.NGSLEY

Kingsley Gbadegesin is a charmingly vibrant, first-generation Nigerian-American who uses fashion to liberate and redefine Black, queer, femme bodies. Born of activism, his brand K.NGSLEY seeks to uplift Black, POC and queer communites, “the people who built the US and its culture in the first place.” One look at the sleek and sexy gender-neutral designs and you’ll understand why K.NGSLEY quickly gathered a cult following. He’s adorned celebrities and socialites galore with strappy fluid tank tops, which no doubt make the wearer feel like a superhero. It all started in 2019 at a party called “Fist”, where a masterfully cut...

MATTHEW HOLROYD: DEATH AND ART

MATTHEW HOLROYD: DEATH AND ART

With a shame riddled and emotionally violent upbringing (common amongst queers) Matthew Holroyd found a way to create art with the fragments society deemed broken. He found beauty and intrigue in what most Westerners label as morbid and/or taboo. His first published works were New Grave fanzines, and Holroyd has gone on to become the founder of Baron Books, a UK publishing house that publishes and stocks the world's finest art, fashion, and photography books. Baron Books published the Death Book, and its second edition is a collaboration with the irreverent artist and filmmaker Bruce La Bruce, a dear friend of Tom of Finland...

Artist Pol Anglada on queer ephemera as blueprint

Artist Pol Anglada on queer ephemera as blueprint

Since 2008, when JW Anderson came howling from Northern Ireland into the fashion world, the brand has become one of London’s most well regarded of the 21st Century. Seamlessly blending male and female genders, JW Anderson seeks to evoke critical thought, moving fashion ever forward. Pol Anglada is an artist who has always been drawn to queer ephemera and erotic images as he works to depict a community’s ever-evolving irreverence. Pol has been illustrating all his life and in 2016 he released his first fanzine FreeTime, a project that would expand to art and objects. His playful and colorful work...

LUIS VENEGAS: A ONE MAN SHOW

LUIS VENEGAS: A ONE MAN SHOW

I was a bit starstruck when asked to interview Luis Venegas (I'm a huge fan). He’s collaborated with many of my idols including a SEAN FORD by GUS VAN SANT moment that blew my mind. There’s no other way to describe Venegas other than, powerhouse. He’s the visionary behind several of the glossy magazines you love: C☆NDY, EY!, The Printed Dog, Fanzine137… but what’s most impressive, he does it all himself. What does that mean and how is it possible, you might ask…? Still not entirely sure, but apparently conceptualizing, producing, and distributing multiple projects almost entirely on his own...
