9 LIVES

"My art definitely is a bit more on the morbid side. It’s raw, warm sexuality. It’s got violence. It portrays my life. It portrays what I went through. I went through one of the most horrific experiences of my life when I eight years old. I felt like I had to become an adult at eight years old with my father dying and with the way he died. I think that experience greatly influences my art."

SANDRINE HOLT: A SHY CONFIDENCE

"I love the psychology of acting. I love getting inside the head’s of my characters and try to figure out what there are thinking, feeling and hiding."

HARIF GUZMAN (ARTIST)

SWEETLY INKED

Sweetly Inked is a tattoo art inspired lifestyle brand of intimates and loungewear.

REEDUS RISING

The first thing I notice about Norman Reedus when I walk into NYC's Dune Studios for our shoot, is the fact that he's already there. I'm a little surprised because punctuality seems at odds, a little incongruous, with the image of Norman Reedus. But not much about Norman seems predictable.

ON THE ROCKS

Imagista Creative Director and photographer, Michael Williams, traveled to a remote part of Brazil to capture this series of images getting us in the mood for the spring and early summer.

PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST

Richard Patterson has lived and worked in London and New York, finally settling down in Dallas with his wife of 10 years, writer and art critic Christina Rees. If you’ve seen his work, you probably assumed that he has a fascination with or at least an interest in American culture and americana. But that wouldn’t be entirely accurate. He has little interest in americana and even less in the preconception that Dallas is somehow kitsch. His mind, he tells us, is in Europe.

THE CHAMELEON

THE CUT

Joel Bukiewicz lives above his kitchen knife storefront, Cut Brooklyn, with his wife. After she goes to bed, Joel likes to sneak down to his basement workshop, turn on one or two dim lights, and grind knives in the quiet. "Basically what I do is turn solid materials into dust."

MUSIC FROM LA WITH LOVE

Los Angeles has a rich history of launching hard-rocking bands with an edge. So, when Imagista heard Dead Sara it made complete sense to us that they were from LA and that they intended, much like their predecessors, on taking no prisoners.

ARMY OF ME

Imagista's London-based fashion director Crystal McClory teamed up with photographer Uli Weber to capture Casely-Hayford's Fall/Winter collection. The results, we're sure you'll agree, are stunning both visually and in terms of the designer's outlook on design and life.
