James Tolich PHOTOGRAPHER New Zealand-born James Tolich began his photography career in Sydney at the age of 18 on a break from university. He has since lived and worked in New York and Paris, where he’s shot for some of the world’s leading publications, such as US Vogue, and brands including Nike, Valentino and Hermès.

It’s a privilege to be able to do this but the ability to create this magazine stems from the simple notion of home, of being lucky enough to have a place to call one’s own. And…

the magic of the everyday

This year, life as we knew it was interrupted. We found ourselves both collectively tested and questioning, as never before. Not least on the purpose of the home itself, as it was forced to play the part of school, nursery, office, gym, and even restaurant. Nevertheless, while the prompt may have been unprecedented, such a domestic reappraisal was long overdue.
