nothing to see here...

It’s business as usual for mankind as we continue to put a few more species out of business. Not that you’d know. Too many stakeholders would rather we turn a blind eye to the slaughter and just move on. Nature, however, has a way of getting its way in the end; so as we poison the planet and violate its animals so we damage ourselves. Our relationship to nature would be infinitely better if it were one of enjoyment or happiness. But more to the point, we are living through what scientists call the ‘sixth great extinction’. A third of all amphibian species are at risk, one fifth of the world’s 5 500 mammals are either endangered or vulnerable. Birds and fish are dying off as never before in their…

Kuisis is naturally inclined to the arts, coming as he does from a family of painters and artisans. He’s mostly self taught and guided by the photographers he has assisted. His eye for fashion is displayed on these pages. Fox spent a decade crisscrossing the African continent as a journalist before turning his attention back to his home city of Cape Town. He uncovers many of the Mother City’s hidden gems in his latest book. Baron, a GQ USA staff writer since 2013, has written about Kanye West, animals on the internet, American militias, and French fashion designers. 50 Cent was once his life coach. He lives in Los Angeles, California. You may be familiar with Oswalt. He’s well-versed in seeing the funny side via his award-winning comedy specials for screen and television.…

selena gomez

‘I chose this. So I’m not gonna sit here and say, “Poor me, I didn’t have a normal childhood”’ Once known more for her relationships with Barney the Dinosaur and Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez has broken free of all of that prehistoric shit with a sexy, smash-hit album, new films with Seth Rogen and James Franco, a Netflix project, and a planet Earth-leading 109 million Instagram followers.

But here’s what we really love about her: she survived the car wreck of child fame – the trolls and the paparazzi, the bad breakups and the exhaustion – and has emerged from it, well, more human than ever. Gomez is technically 24, but…

pushing limits

‘All we need to do is keep pushing boundaries because we’ve never had any to begin with’ A tang Tshikare prefers to steer clear of labels that pigeonhole him as a specific kind of artist. ‘Everyone has some box they throw at me and I don’t try to keep up with any of it,’ says the Bloemfontein-born creative. ‘I’m elusive like that, so the audience has the freedom to create their own understanding of me.’ Tshikare is the founder of Zabalazaa Designs, a Cape Town-based studio specialising in surface design and illustration using a range of mediums, including metal, wood, paper, canvas – and even shoes. Tshikare’s work has been met with critical acclaim, and in 2014, he won the Southern Guild Design Foundation Future Found Award. The success of his craft…
