Stef Van Der Laan in “April Skyes” for S/S/A/W Spring/Summer 2014 photographed by Benjamin Vnuk and styled by Oscar Lange
I tend to lean towards smaller magazines. Large magazines such as Vogue, L'Officiel, and Elle are too commercialized for me. I am on a constant quest for finding imagery that inspires me. That being said, my favorite magazine is S/S/A/W. I first bought the Stockholm issue with a one-of-a-kind photograph of Frida Gustavsson on the cover. I was amazed with the content. It was something I actually wanted to read, as opposed to rapidly flipping through endless campaigns and meaningless editorials. The artistic direction of every shoot in this magazine is incredible. S/S/A/W offers something new and fresh with every issue, but sticks to its Scandinavian roots. Acclaimed photographers such as Boe Marion, Marcus Ohlsson, and Andreas Ohlund have collaborated with the magazine. S/S/A/W contains page after page of incredible photography and wonderful imagery that perfectly captures natural beauty, everyday life, and breathtaking landscapes.
