We presented IMPACT through insightful articles with real sustainable solutions and strong imagery. We featured exclusive interviews with designers including Netherland's revolutionary designer Iris van Herpen, NY gender fluid designer MI Leggett, and Nigerian brand and LVMH prize nominee Orange Culture. We also feature interviews with some of the most recognized art and fashion photographers worldwide including Greg Gorman, Jill Greenberg, and Barbara Cole plus a new discovery, photographer Lei Davis. This issue has seven exclusive photo editorials including the cover story by none other than Albert Watson who shot 12 models dressed in Iris van Herpen, GL Wood offers a visual commentary on humans’ impact on the world today, Emma Mead photographed actress and writer Nicole Kang, known for her role as Ivy in Batwoman, French Cowboy shot three editorials A Pale Green Dot, Listen to the Wind and Earth, Air & Sea. For the latter they juxtaposed humans in the place of the planet to show her suffering from pollution. Then IRK traveled to Japan in a geisha story called 生まれ変わった (Reborn) shot by Tetsuya Tokumaru. We also look into the heart of singer Victor Solf as he searches for his new voice after HER. Finally we learn about accepting self through gender fluid Buddhist Monk Kodo. IRK Magazine is an Independent Paris-based Fashion, Art, and Photography magazine. We showcase talent that is extraordinary, models with character, photographers with mind blowing ideas, hairstylists that make a shoot and makeup artists who are artists, and for fashion we choose new designers, forward thinking fashion, and pushing the limit icons. Each issue has a specific theme driving our choice of contributors and to inspire them to create original pieces for the issue. Every issue is carefully curated as if it were an exhibition in a museum bringing together the finest contributors across the globe.
