EDICT Magazine is an object of printed art, a relic of the future that stands alone in it’s simplicity. EDICT Magazine ist not available online, nor are any images of it’s cover or pages set to appear anytime soon, so if you want to see it or read it, you have to walk into a store and buy it!
“If I sat in my room now, till the day I died, there wouldn’t be enough time to read all books, listen to all the music and watch all the films I have. We are at Saturation point: engulfed by the deluge of EVERYTHING.”
Perou loves to use broncolor lights. Most of the images in the magazine were shot with broncolor gear. Look at one image example from a well-known artist, film producer and musician: Idris Elba.
“What’s my most precious possession, excluding children and family members? My father passed away last year and it really changed my life. I wear this necklace with my father’s two favourite rings on it to remind me of him. He was my mentor and the most important figure in my life. He encouraged me in everything I’ve done. Particularly in music.”
For this shoot, Perou used a broncolor Octabox 150cm as a main light without a diffusor and a small soft box on the floor to fill in some of the shadows.
One of the fashion stories in the magazine: The Beltane – Grotto shoot
The main light here, was the Beauty Dish.
