It’s been 4 years since the launch of our first print issue in the Fall of ’11. To celebrate the occasion our latest issue, Vol 5: Melancholy We Are, Â features 4 exclusive, limited edition covers photographed by some of the most captivating artists from around the world.
In one of our special cover stories “Vulnerable Men” we travel alongside Munich based photographer Marcus Schaefer as he grants us an intimate view inside is his bizarre, comical and surrealistic world of unabashed imagination dreams that take us far beyond reality.
The 28 year-old discovered his passion for photography while studying fashion journalism and media communication at the Academy of Fashion and Design in Munich. His work is everything but generic: Unconventional, experimentalÂ light setting and eccentric imaginary worlds make him step out of the masses. Schaefer thrives off of capturing his muses at the climax of their vulnerable and melancholical ways, invigorating his work and the viewer with a magical, timeless feeling of atmosphere and intrigue.
